Come Saturday, August 6th, ICE District Plaza is set to create its own history. The plaza will once again turn into a big block party for hockey fans and fun lovers alike. Only this time, the event will mark the inauguration of the Pride Cup ball hockey championship to celebrate Pride in Edmonton. 

The championship is presented by Edmonton Oilers in partnership with Pride Tape and MacEwan Centre for Sexual and Gender Diversity. With this championship, the Oilers continue to profess their unwavering commitment to diversity, equality and inclusivity.

The Battle of Alberta will return with the  Edmonton Rage going up against Calgary Pioneers. In addition to an action-packed game, the event is your chance to catch the first-ever unveiling and presentation of the Pride Cup. Sounds exciting, eh?

Plus, there’s going to be tons more to keep us entertained. Expect live bands, DJs, adult and family-friendly games, Oilers alumni and tons more. All this while enjoying hot food and cold bevies. Now, here’s the gravy on top— this weekend party won’t affect your wallet in the least bit. It’s free to attend.
