I am happy to announce that with the coordination of the Ottawa 2017 Bureau, an NHL centennial outdoor game will be held in Ottawa on Saturday, December 16, 2017.
Ottawa 2017 has been working hard at measuring the feasibility of this winter tradition and now, thanks to their support by offsetting a portion of the municipal services required to host the game, this fan-favourite is going to be taking place in the nation’s capital. Ottawa 2017 will also help create a festive spirit across the city by assisting with pageantry and special outdoor projections.
I would like to thank the National Hockey League for bringing this prestigious event to our great city for the first time as well as Ottawa 2017 for all of their hard work in making this a reality.
Canada’s 150th anniversary celebrations will offer Canadians and visitors from around the world an exceptional and memorable year of high-caliber experiences while bringing a record number of visitors to Ottawa in 2017 to celebrate this important milestone for our country.
More details surrounding the event will be released as the year progresses. Please visit www.ottawa2017.ca for more information and to keep up to date on all of the great sesquicentennial events taking place in 2017.
