Hockey Canada celebrates the launch of the Century Tour to commemorate its 100th anniversary. A 20,000-square-foot interactive hockey experience caravan will visit approximately 100 communities across Canada.
The Russell Fair is scheduled to host this amazing event on Friday September 5th-Sunday September 7th on the grounds near the North Ball Diamond. Fans visiting the #CenturyTour will be immersed in the excitement, history and energy that is Canadian hockey, including a state-of-the-art interactive timeline of milestone hockey moments and artifacts, on-ice experiences on a one-third scale synthetic ice rink, programs and activities specifically developed for kids, families and newcomers to the game, and a celebration of both Team Canada and local community hockey leaders.

Bring your skates for the synthetic ice rink – a schedule of FREE Hockey Skills and Drills by Hockey Canada Instructors will be available soon.
The #CenturyTour is made possible with the support of Canadian Heritage, Canadian Tire, TELUS, Samsung and Respect Group.
