The City of Lacombe is excited to announce that Lacombe has been chosen as a host community for Canada’s ultimate touring hockey festival, Rogers Hometown Hockey™ Tour, presented by Scotiabank and Dodge, on Feb. 3rd-4th, 2018.

“This is an amazing opportunity for local residents to celebrate our love for hockey and sports, our community spirit, and to showcase Lacombe to Canadians from coast to coast to coast,” said Mayor Steve Christie.

“On behalf of council, I thank the organizers of the Rogers Hometown Hockey Tour for selecting our beautiful little city for this fun, community-focused event.”

Free of charge and open to fans of all ages, the jam-packed two-day festival features live entertainment, local celebrities, NHL alumni and a multitude of activities for the whole family to enjoy.
