Original 16 Patch

What is it?

The Original 16 Patch is legendary for being “curling’s party place”! 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 get to know the athletes at Up Close and Personal sessions!

The Original 16 Patch is open to all general public. Minors permitted up to 8:00 p.m.


The Original 16 Patch will be in a structured tent just behind Centre 200 in the East Parking Lot.
