MONTREAL -- The Canadiens' traditional playoff tailgate party, the Fan Jam, will once again return for all postseason home games. Presented by La Cage, this year's edition will be held in the same location as in 2015, on the large field adjacent to ETS on the corner of Peel and St. Jacques, just south of the Bell Centre.
Opening three hours before every home game (4 p.m. for 7 p.m. starts), the Fan Jam will be host to a wide array of activities offered by the team and its partners for young and old alike. New this year will be a variety of different games and exhibitors, while signature elements will be back including live TV and radio broadcasts from team partners, a 60-foot illuminated Ferris wheel, free Canadiens-themed haircuts by Notorious and permanent tattoos by Adrenaline, the "Bar à Yvon" hosted by Yvon Lambert, appearances from other alumni and Youppi!, a live DJ, food and drink, and much more.
Activities on-site at the Fan Jam will draw to a close 15 minutes prior to the game to allow fans with tickets time to get to their seats for what will be a special pregame show integrating extensive lighting and special effects throughout the arena.
The entire organization hopes that fans can "Make History Now" alongside the team on the ice in the 2017 Playoffs.
