2019 Fan Fest Tour

The Boston Bruins will embark on its third annual, seven-city Boston Bruins Fan Fest Tour that will visit all six New England states from August 16-25, with the mission to grow the game of hockey throughout the region. Exact locations will be announced at a later date. During the tour, the Bruins expect to outfit over 5,000 kids (born between 2010-2014), who have signed up for the Bruins Academy Learn to Play program, in brand new CCM hockey gear valued at $500 (retail value) per player for a total of $2.5 million (retail value) worth of equipment dispersed to local communities. Last year, the Bruins distributed $2 million worth of youth hockey equipment through the Bruins Academy Learn to Play program, contributing to the overall growth of youth hockey in the area.

Once again, current Bruins players, coaches, executives and NESN personalities are expected to be on hand throughout the tour to play games and mingle with fans, sign autographs, take photos, participate in Q&A sessions and much more. Fans will be able to participate in skills and drills on synthetic ice rinks, pose for photos in a mock Bruins locker room, and have the opportunity to partake in NESN virtual reality experiences. Boston Bruins BFit will also be on hand to lead kid-friendly fitness activities at each stop. Kids can visit the Bruins Academy Zone for face painting, poster making, and Bruins trivia. Please note that player, coach, executive and NESN personality appearances will vary at each location and are subject to change.
