PLAY THE SPORT YOU LOVE IN ONE OF THE WORLD'S GREAT CItIES
The Vancouver Experience.
Set between the wild Pacific Ocean and the mighty Rocky Mountains, Vancouver is a cosmopolitan city on Mother Nature's doorstep. As a Golden Oldies Hockey player, you'll have easy access to this spectacular beauty and all manner of outdoor activities, such as hiking, cycling and sailing. In the city itself, you'll explore colourful downtown neighbourhoods that are bursting with life, culturally diverse suburbs that echo a rich history and you'll enjoy dining, shopping and entertainment that can match any destination in the world.
ENTER BEFORE JUNE 1, 2018
Every team that enters before June 1, 2018, will go into the draw to win a team tour up Vancouver's iconic Grouse Mountain.
Schedule of Events
Fun on the field.
Golden Oldies World Hockey Festival Vancouver 2019 offers a week long mix of on-field hockey action, sightseeing, social activities and free time to do as you please. The starting point is the Opening Ceremony and Welcome Party, where you'll catch up with old friends and make plenty of new ones. Then it's time to get the team on the pitch. There's a rest day in between each round of match days - the highlights include a Picnic Day at West Coast Railway Heritage Park and sightseeing along the 'BC' coast. Sadly, all good things must come to end, but not without a Grand Finale Awards Dinner and Dance on the last night. Needless to say, Vancouver will provide a festival to remember.
