Rogers Hometown Hockey approached the Town of Wolfville in the summer of 2015 expressing an interest in staging one of its two dozen weekend celebrations of hockey in Wolfville. An agreement was recently finalized with the Acadia Athletic Complex parking lot and Andrew H. McCain Arena being selected by Rogers as the festival location. The November 28thand 29th weekend will be a major opportunity for the entire community to participate and celebrate.
“Rogers Hometown Hockey is a great opportunity for us to showcase our hockey stories, legends and culture, and to show all of Canada the type of community, and the spirit of the community we have here in Wolfville. This event will be a lot of fun, and we’re going to bring the Town, Acadia and the entire region together to help celebrate this opportunity.
