Fan Zone: Activities and Entertainment
It’s the perfect match – Calgarians and curling fans across the country share one driving passion… a pure and simple love to party! During the nine days of the Tim Hortons Brier, the Patch is where it will all come together.
The Patch, championship curling’s legendary party place, will be housed in the Big Four Building at Calgary Stampede Park, just a short stroll from the arena.
Fans are guaranteed a rockin’ good time, highlighted by a nightly lineup of live entertainment, and fuelled by a tasty selection of food and beverages.
You’ll have a number of opportunities to meet with the athletes at daily Team Autograph sessions and Up Close and Personal interviews. And, you could be the hottest shot in the Patch just by registering for the Cool Shots competition.
The best part is, admission comes free with every same-day event pass.
The top 12 teams in the country will be here for the Tim Hortons Brier – including, for the first time ever, the 2014 champions competing as Team Canada. They’ll all be on hand for autographs and photos with their fans in the Patch.
Up Close and Personal
You might not believe what you hear, but you definitely don’t want to miss it! There are plenty of surprises in store when the curlers field questions from fans at the Up Close and Personal interviews.
Take aim at the cash just by signing up for the Cool Shots competition. It’s free to enter the shootout in the small-scale version of the roaring game – played on shuffleboard-style tables with all kinds of curl. Cash prizes are awarded to daily winners who also qualify for the playoffs on championship weekend.
