TORONTO, ON – With the 2024 Memorial Cup presented by Dow just a little over two months away, the Canadian Hockey League (CHL) and the 2024 Memorial Cup Host Organizing Committee are proud to announce that country star and GRAMMY-nominated artist Walker Hayes will headline the off-ice festivities that will be taking place as part of the 2024 Memorial Cup presented by Dow, which will run from May 23 – June 2 in Saginaw, Michigan.

Scheduled to take place the night before the 2024 Memorial Cup’s Championship Game, on Saturday, June 1 at 6:00 PM, Walker Hayes will serenade hundreds of fans with a country music concert at Jolt Credit Union Event Park, which is located right across the street from the Dow Event Center, the home of the Ontario Hockey League’s Saginaw Spirit and the host arena for the 2024 Memorial Cup presented by Dow.

Tickets for the Walker Hayes’ concert at the 2024 Memorial Cup will be available online to the public starting this Friday (March 22) at 10:00 AM ET. The pre-sale for Walker Hayes will then run from this Thursday (March 21) at 10:00 AM ET to Friday at 9:59 AM ET.

In addition to Walker Hayes’ musical performance, many other exciting off-ice events are also set to be a part of the 2024 Memorial Cup presented by Dow, including:
The Arrival of the Cup presented by LiUNA (May 23 at 4:00 p.m. @ Jolt Credit Union Event Park): A day before the puck drops, all fans are welcome to come witness the prestigious Memorial Cup trophy arrive by convoy before then being led by a parade featuring the SVSU marching band, high school bands, and military personnel to Jolt Credit Union Event Park. This marquee event, which has become an annual tradition at the Memorial Cup, will also be highlighted by a brief formal program filled with music by the Saginaw Bay Symphony Orchestra with Michael Todd Hall, remarks from honoured guests, and more.

Fan Fest presented by UA Local 85 (May 24 – June 2 @ Memorial Cup Event Campus on Johnson Street): Featuring an impressive line-up of activities, including interactive skills games from TopShot Hockey, face painting, a STEM science station, live music, and a speaker series throughout the week, the Fan Fest will be a must-see stop for hockey fans of all ages. The Fan Fest will also host daily viewing parties at Jolt Credit Union Event Park for all to come to watch every single game of the 2024 Memorial Cup presented by Dow.
Hockey Hall of Fame (HHOF) presented by Tri-Star Trust (May 24 – June 2 @ Heritage Theatre in the Dow Event Center): The HHOF will showcase its most prized artifacts and trophies in Saginaw, something that is usually reserved for fans who visit the HHOF in Toronto. The HHOF has held this one-of-a-kind display at the Memorial Cup for around 25 years, and it stands as their longest annual running display and their largest annually.
