A one-of-a-kind hockey experience is coming to Banff this month.
The NHL Centennial Fan Arena – a touring tribute to Canada’s game – will be at the Fairmont Banff Springs soccer field July 28 – 30.
Fans can explore a 53-foot museum, filled with historic memorabilia, photos, interactive displays and more. The museum showcases the history of the NHL and celebrates members of the 100 Greatest NHL Players in history.
After you check out the unique displays, head to the pop-up ball hockey rink where you can show off your skills, or compete against others in the Clear the Ice Zamboni Virtual Reality Experience, complete with a mini-Zamboni. Fans planning to attend can RSVP at nhl.com/fanarena
