2022 Festival Announcement

It is with saddened hearts that we inform our community of the cancellation of the 2022 Pond Hockey Festival on the Rock.

Organizing an outdoor festival in Northern Ontario always has its unique challenges but our current environment made these challenges insurmountable. After consultations with our city, key stakeholders and volunteers we feel as though this is the only sensible choice at this time.

Our committee will continue to work hard to bring Pond Hockey back to Ramsey Lake next winter. We are thankful to all those who support our Festival. Our volunteers, sponsors, and participants answer the call year after year. From local businesses donating supplies, to high school students volunteering to help with the ice, and teams of longtime friends reuniting to play some hockey, it truly is a special weekend our city should be very proud of. We look forward to seeing everyone on the ice together again next year!

Our biggest disappointment is for Camp Quality Northern Ontario whom our Festival was working to raise funds for again this winter. CQ is a volunteer driven charitable organization that provides free uplifting camp experiences for children affected by cancer and blood disorders. Our Festival was a major fundraiser for this charity locally in recent years. We are encouraging those in the position to do so, to look to help support charities at this time as many similar events just like ours have been cancelled over the last two years. Though we will not be able to gather on Ramsey Lake, stay tuned, as we are working hard to organize an event in the coming months to support this tremendous cause.

Be safe, be well, and be kind,

Pond Hockey Festival on the Rock
