The free festival features a full weekend of live entertainment, NHL alumni, and hockey-themed
activities, culminating with a live outdoor viewing party of an NHL broadcast from the Sportsnet
Mobile Studio.

“Hockey brings Canadians together from coast-to-coast. It allows us to imagine new possibilities
and share the stories that unite the country,” said MacLean.

“It has been a privilege to tell Canada’s hockey stories over the past five seasons and we are
grateful for the chance to hit the road for season six; seeing old friends and meeting new ones,
and getting to the heart of this country’s insatiable passion for hockey,” added Slone.

Rogers Hometown Hockey is pleased to introduce Hyundai Canada as the new co-presenting
partner of the festival, along with returning title sponsor, Rogers, and co-presenting partner,
