There will be plenty of entertainment on the ice during the 2020 World Women’s Curling Championship in Prince George. However, there will be just as much high-calibre entertainment off the ice.
CN Center manager Glen Mikkelsen unveiled the stellar line-up that will take to the stage in The World Famous Patch during the games March 13-22. The Patch is the social and entertainment hub during the World Women’s Curling Championship. Located in the Kin 1 arena, it will be open throughout the Championship, and offer entertainment, food and drinks, table top curling games, plus opportunities for people to meet guests and athletes from around the globe.
“Now is the time for the community to embrace the world coming to Prince George in March,” said Mikkelsen. “We encourage homes, schools, and businesses, to decorate and celebrate as we host people from around the world.”
Fans will have the chance to meet athletes at daily team autograph sessions and ask questions at the “Up Close & Personal Sessions.” It is one of the only sports where fans can see a team play and then a couple of hours later meet and chat with them in The Patch.
There is no cover charge for The Patch. Minors are welcome until 8 p.m. Hours are 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. daily.
