October 1st Amelia Park Arena will be hosting the first ever “Hocktober Fest” on the Amelia Park outdoor rink
On Saturday October 1st Amelia Park Arena will be hosting the first ever “Hocktober Fest” on the Amelia Park outdoor rink. Hocktober Fest will consist of live music from the Tom Ingram Band, cornhole, contests, games, and local vendors that include Tin Bridge Brewery, North Elm Butcher Block, Bobos Food Truck and Chrissy G’s Bakery. The night will end with a 75 minute comedy show featuring Ray Harrington and Rafi Gonzalez.
The event is designed to be a fundraiser for Amelia Park Arena to prepare the facility for the upcoming season. General Manager Billy Fellows had this to say about the event, “Not a lot of people realize that the rink is a non-profit organization. My goal as General Manager is to make the community more aware of that, we need their support. The more money we can raise from these events the more we can put back into the arena to ensure we keep providing the best facility in the area”.
Hocktober Fest marks the third new big event at Amelia Park Arena in 2022. “Creating these new events has been awesome because while we’re fundraising, we have the opportunity to provide fun atmospheres that bring the community together.” Said Fellows.
Hocktober Fest is full of local vendors and individuals who just want to see the Westfield community thrive. One of those people is Tin Bridge Owner Joe Cocchi, who is thrilled to be doing another event with Amelia Park. “We are happy as always to be able to support and work with Amelia Park Arena. My brother and I played our entire High School Bomber Hockey careers at Amelia. It’s a great and iconic piece of Westfield and we want it to stay that way”
Businesses interested in supporting the event have the opportunity to advertise their business with their logo on their own set of cornhole boards, or on a large banner advertisement. The event will take place from 1-6pm, entry is $20 per ticket. Tickets can be purchased on EventBrite, at the arena before the event or at the door day of.
