Rogers Hometown Hockey

A big thanks to everyone who made Rogers Hometown Hockey's stop in the City a success! From the fun and games at the 1st Street Festival, to the cheers and community spirit at the live broadcast down at The Shipyards, this was a weekend to remember. We loved celebrating the game that brings us together and showcasing hockey history and culture on the North Shore.




Rogers Hometown Hockey will be at the Foot of Lonsdale in North Vancouver on April 23-25, 2022. This family-friendly hockey celebration includes live entertainment, NHL alumni appearances, prizes, and tons of hockey-themed fun.
