HockeyFest Road Hockey Tournament Is A Win/Win Event 

Growing up, all we ever wanted to do was play as much hockey as possible. Whether it was Sunday morning skates or late night games, pre-game cheers or puck drop, road trips and mini sticks or make-shift street hockey, our passion for the game has shaped us into who we are today. It has taught us to be team players, to respect others, to listen carefully, what effort truly means, and that you can’t always win. With sticks in our hands and a team surrounding us, nothing else matters.

Forget about yelling “car”, dragging nets to the curbs, or running down the street to get your ball. Forget about trying to remember the score and about calling your own penalties. Take the essence of hockey, the integration of real rinks, the support of official referees and you get the largest road hockey tournament in North America. Each game is played on 50% to scale NHL sized rinks with real boards, real netting and real referees. With this, we bring you Hockeyfest - Game On!

Hockeyfest – Game On!’ will be making a stop at The Kitchener Memorial Auditorium. The world’s biggest road hockey tournament will be in town on May 11 and 12, 2019. Hockeyfest – Game On! features 4 on 4 road hockey, with divisions for all ages, in an outdoor, rink-like environment with official referees. And that’s just the hockey! Hockeyfest will also include live music, food and beverage vendors, interactive games such as the hardest shot, mini stick rinks and shooting accuracy, and much more.

Registration opens Feb. 1, 2019 with a cost per team of $495.00 (plus applicable fees). This event is in support of Family and Children’s Services of Waterloo Region.

Each tournament features 4 on 4 road hockey for divisions of all ages and genders without the worry of your ball going out, fencing going down or unofficial refereeing. DJ’s will be playing throughout the day with local live music at night. Indulge in your favourite food and beverage vendors, drinks with the team, and kill time by playing our interactive games such as the hardest shot, mini stick rinks, shooting accuracy and more. Hockeyfest - Game On! is bringing the passion of sport, music, food and fun together for a family-fun festival.

Get Involved, Register, Have Fun For A Great Cause

As announced this morning, ‘Hockeyfest – Game On!’ will be making a stop at The Kitchener Memorial Auditorium. The world’s biggest road hockey tournament will be in town on May 11 and 12, 2019. Hockeyfest – Game On! features 4 on 4 road hockey, with divisions for all ages, in an outdoor, rink-like environment with official referees. And that’s just the hockey! Hockeyfest will also include live music, food and beverage vendors, interactive games such as the hardest shot, mini stick rinks and shooting accuracy, and much more.

“We knew there was a North-American wide demand to grow the game of hockey at a grassroots level and felt there were multiple untapped markets to do so in," says Brad Jones, President, Jones Entertainment Group. "By putting real money behind the idea and investing in real dasher boards, we knew we had something special. No one has ever been able to bring you a full-scale traveling road hockey tournament with real rinks, real refs, real fun and integrated festival aspects; and that’s exactly what HockeyFest – Game On! is. With 6 markets to start in 2019, we intend to grow exponentially.”
