WELCOME TO KINGSTON

Kingston may be the oldest city in Ontario, but they know the secret to eternal youth — good times.

Snap some pics of the city’s new and historic architecture, visit the Farmers’ Market (which, by the way, is the oldest continuously run market in North America – having been in operation since 1801), and get some shopping done at the authentic boutiques and shops along Princess Street in the downtown core – it’s all waiting for you in Kingston.

Located right in Ontario’s backyard, find out why Kingston will soon become your new favourite weekend getaway.

Fifteen teams, representing each of Curling Canada’s 14 Member Associations as well as the defending champion Team Canada, compete for the Brier Tankard, the refurbished silver trophy that was presented to the winners of the Brier during Macdonald Tobacco’s 50-year sponsorship. The trophy was re-introduced in 2001 in Ottawa at the first Nokia Brier, when the famed Labatt Brier Tankard was retired after the 2000 Brier in Saskatoon. Read more
