We Love Hockey!

Into hockey and re-visiting the golden era of Our Game? Or simply need a fix supporting local teams have FUN & WIN after a dismal Habs season… Well here’s a brilliant way to spend your Saturday!

In its 5th year, WRG Classic and lululemon have created a festival that inspires and unites individuals within their community by attracting hockey enthusiasts, families and influencers from across the city for invitational hockey.

This free community festival is inspired by early 20th century fashion; players and spectators will be sporting collared shirts, bow-ties, cloche hats, flapper-style dresses and waistcoats, generating an authentic ambiance.

This Saturday, January 17th, 2018 WRG Classic, the festival will be held from 9:00 AM- 5 PM at Parc Ignace-Bourget (Sud-Ouest Montreal, H4E 2V6). Both WRG Classic and lululemon will provide the opportunity to create a festival that inspires and unites individuals within their community.

The player pool consists of prominent community leaders and Montreal influencers. With a total of 44 players and 4 teams, the 2018 edition includes players such as Jojo Flores (International DJ) and Kevin Demers (owner of The Cold Room).

Spectators will be able to indulge in fresh eats and beverages that will be sold on-site by local merchants and participate in curated winter activities throughout the day. Additionally, enjoy live entertainment, a free skating session after the final game and a chance to scoop customized Hockey Classic gear at the exclusive WRG x lululemon pop up shop, while taking part in Montreal’s very own winter hockey festival.

The WRG Classic and Lululemon have established their very own a non for profit foundation, La fondation WRG. A portion of proceeds from on-site vendors donated to the foundation. It’s pushing forward the heritage of hockey culture in Quebec to the next generation through a series of hockey focused projects. The proceeds will ensure the support of local youth centres and schools, as well as the development of hockey culture and wellness programs in Quebec. This year’s event will be happening soon.
