Tonight, the Edmonton Oilers take on the Florida Panthers in game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals — and the City of Kingston will be streaming the game live in Springer Market Square!

“Calling all hockey fans! Get your lucky jersey and your lawn chair to be ready to watch the thrilling conclusion of the NHL Stanley Cup Final in Springer Market Square!” the City said in a media release issued just before noon on Monday, Jun. 24, 2024.

The stream will begin at 8 p.m. on the “big screen,” and the City reminds fans that although the hockey action begins with the puck drop at 8 p.m., the best viewing won’t be until sunset at 9 p.m.

“Whether you’re a Florida Panthers or Edmonton Oilers fan, Game 7 will be a game for the history books,” the City stated.

Here’s everything you need to know to make the night enjoyable, according to the City: 

  • Bring your own chair. Seating is available on a first come, first served basis. 
  • The forecast of potential inclement weather this evening may have an impact on this event. We’ll continue to monitor weather patterns closely and update you accordingly!
  • Best viewing takes place after sunset (approximately 9 p.m.), so fans can join early or plan to stop by for the second and third periods.  

In the release, the City reminds the public that Springer Market Square is a barrier-free gathering space, with accessible washrooms available in the basement of City Hall. Accessible parking is available on Brock Street and in the Brock-Ontario Municipal Parking lot, across from City Hall. 

Those who wish to attend can plan their trip downtown with Kingston Transit using the Trip Planner or the Transit App. The Kingston Transit Downtown Transfer Point is approximately a five minute walk from Springer Market Square, the City said.
