Kiwanis Hockey Festival
Looking Forward to 2021

The 2020 Kiwanis Hockey Festival was cancelled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.  We look forward to holding the 28th Hockey Festival again in December 2021.

The 2019 Kiwanis Hockey Festival marked its 27th year of this wonderful combined fund raising and sports tournament event.   

Over $680,000 has been raised and distributed to local youth and community service projects and other Kiwanis sponsored projects in the past 26 years.  

The needs of various youth and community organizations are reviewed each year for future hockey festival donations by the 4 participating Kiwanis Clubs and distributed by them.

Over 100 Kiwanians spent well over 1800 hours throughout the year planning and supporting the event and we expect even more effort to go into our next festival.

Future Team Participation:   The 2021 Kiwanis Hockey Festival will be Dec 28, 29 and 30th.

If you would like your NFHS sanctioned high school hockey team to participate in next season's Hockey Festival, please contact vyetzer@charter.net . Please include this information:

  • team name and location

  • do you have JV and Varsity teams,

  • when do you need a response from our hockey festival committee,
