The Patch: Activities and Entertainment
Live at the Patch in Winnipeg!
The Patch is the place everyone goes to party when the games are done. During the entire week of the Roar of the Rings you’ll find all the action in the spacious Winnipeg Convention Centre, just a short indoor walk from the MTS Centre.
Doors open at 11:00 a.m. and the party just keeps rolling along until the late hours of the night. Dance to the sounds of some of Canada’s hottest bands and share a great selection of food and refreshments with the most passionate sports fans in the world.
For those who have a little too much fun, options will be available to make sure everyone has a safe ride home.

Fan Appreciation Night
The celebration gets off to an exciting start with Fan Appreciation Night, November 30 in the Patch. Athletes from all the teams will be there to meet the fans and join the kick-off for a week of non-stop party action. An exclusive invitation is included in the price of every Old Classic (Full Event) Ticket Package.
Up Close & Personal Interviews
The curlers truly enjoy spending time with the fans – and one of the best places to make it happen is the Up Close and Personal interviews featuring Tim Hortons Roar of the Rings competitors and their families. It’s an entertaining discussion in a relaxing environment where you can ask the questions… and you’ll be surprised by the candor of the responses!
Looking for an autograph or a photo with your favourite curlers? Make sure you’re there for the Team Autograph sessions where a different group sits down each day to sign on the line.
You might not be in the running for a gold medal, but here’s the chance to play for a championship of your own! The Cool Shots competition will be contested throughout the week in the Patch. Sign up for free and take your shot at daily cash prizes in the small-scale version of the grand old game. And, every daily winner qualifies to play for the big money in the finals on championship weekend.
