Submitted By Admin on Tuesday, August 21, 2018
The City of Burlington is proud to announce that the city has been chosen as a host city for the acclaimed Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour with Ron MacLean and Tara Slone on Oct. 27-28.

Residents, hockey players and hockey fans of all ages and abilities are invited to attend, participate and enjoy the free festivities planned throughout the weekend as Burlington’s beauty, residents and generosity is featured across Canada on Sportsnet.

Rogers Hometown Hockey will be welcomed to the city in the midst of largest food drive campaign in Canada, the Gift of Giving back. Young Burlington hockey players will be canvassing communities to gather non-perishable food donations. Residents are encouraged to continue to give generously.

The weekend will feature a ball hockey tournament, local musicians on stage, activities and will end on Sunday evening with an outdoor viewing party of the live Sportsnet broadcast of the evening’s featured NHL game with Tara Slone and Ron MacLean on site in Burlington showcasing our great city. 

About Rogers Hometown Hockey

The family-friendly weekend tells the stories of local upcoming talent and alumni, provides an inviting atmosphere for the community to come together to show their passion for the game and ultimately, celebrate the game of hockey which has been woven tightly into our great Canadian culture.

"We are thrilled to host Rogers Hometown Hockey in Burlington. It's not every day we get to showcase our beautiful city to the rest of Canada. We are looking forward to highlighting our community from our vibrant lakefront to our sweeping rural community that's home to the Niagara Escarpment, a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.

“Rogers Hometown Hockey has connected Canadians from coast to coast to coast with our official national winter sport. I look forward to welcoming Ron MacLean, Tara Slone and the rest of Burlington for an unforgettable event filled with festivities, music and hockey."
