Activities & Entertainment

Championship curling is more than just a game.  It’s an opportunity for fans and competitors to celebrate this unique sport and interact in so many ways. Just name one other sport where you watch the best athletes in the world in the heat of competition and then talk to them one-on-one when the play is done!

Welcome to Canada's Party Central

The Patch is the place where everyone comes together when the draw is done.  You can kick up your heels to the sounds of some of our country’s hottest live acts… and share the tasty array of food and refreshments with the most passionate fans in the sporting world.

The Patch is in the Penticton Trade & Convention Centre right next door to the South Okanagan Events Centre. There is no need to go outside just walk through the connector where there’s plenty of room for everyone to join the party, have lunch or supper and also watch the games on the big screens.  And, for those who may have too much fun, phone numbers for taxi services will be readily available to ensure a safe ride home.

Fan Appreciation Night Up Close and Personal
The fun starts off in the Patch Wednesday, January 9 when all the competitors come out for this exclusive meet-and-greet gathering that’s open to sponsors and fans who have purchased full event passes. Up Close and Personal interviews give fans the chance to see competitors, team coaches and captains in a relaxing environment after the intense action on the ice.  It’s a casual discussion where the fans ask the questions… and they’re often surprised by the answers!
