The mission of the Festival is to provide a fun and exciting weekend of hockey by putting EveryBODY’s abilities on the ice. The event also serves to promote and grow disabled hockey throughout the country.

On Friday evening at 6:00 pm, we will feature a Boston Bruins Alumni Game to benefit Massachusetts Special Hockey followed by a dinner dance social for all participants, families and friends. The public is welcome.
