  • Let’s go McDavid, let’s go! Town of Newmarket hosting viewing parties to cheer on hometown hockey hero

    Created: Wednesday, June 05, 2024

    The Town of Newmarket invites the community to cheer on hometown hockey hero Connor McDavid in his quest with the Edmonton Oilers for his first Stanley Cup!

    Bring a lawn chair and join hockey fans at community viewing parties, hosted by the Town for each of the Stanley Cup Finals games between the Edmonton Oilers and the Florida Panthers. Admission is free. Food and beverage will be available for purchase on site.
    “Connor McDavid has been a part of the Newmarket community virtually his entire life and he continues to have many friends and fans that are cheering for him as he pursues the Stanley Cup,” says Mayor John Taylor. “Connor is an amazing ambassador for the Town of Newmarket, and I couldn’t be more excited to cheer him and the Oilers on in their quest for the Cup. Newmarket – let’s show Connor we are behind him and wear or display Orange and Blue anywhere you can. Go Connor Go!”
    Mayor Taylor has declared the Riverwalk Commons to be temporarily named Connor McDavid Square for the duration of the playoffs.
    A free towel (orange or blue) will be handed out to the first 600 people who attend each night with a non-perishable food item for the Newmarket Food Pantry.
