The Saskatchewan Roughriders announced today the 2014 Riderville Pre-Game Party Tour which will make seven stops in CFL cities, including the 102nd Grey Cup Festival in Vancouver and the Labour Day Riderville Cabaret in Regina.
Riderville events have been a staple at CFL Grey Cup Festivals for years. In 2013, Riderville pre-game events went on the road to Edmonton and Vancouver. The 2014 Riderville Tour will make pre-game stops at five Rider away games in Ottawa, Vancouver, Winnipeg, Edmonton and Calgary.
Sponsored by Tourism Saskatchewan, Riderville pre-game events will welcome fans of all CFL teams and will include music, food, refreshments, special guest speakers and MC’s, door prizes, contests and other giveaways. Each event will also raise funds for a local charity. In 2013, the Edmonton Burn Treatment Society and Ronald McDonald House of British Columbia benefitted. This year, the first tour stop will be in Ottawa at the Aberdeen Pavilion on August 2. Funds raised at this event will support the Military Family Resource Centre.
Riderville tour stops are free to enter and open to all ages and all jersey colours.
“Tourism Saskatchewan values its partnership with the Saskatchewan Roughriders and is proud to play a role in hosting Riderville events,” Interim CEO of Tourism Saskatchewan Mary Taylor-Ash said. “The events are great opportunities to showcase Saskatchewan spirit and hospitality and entice visitors to our province, while supporting worthy causes. We look forward to welcoming Rider Nation and fans of all CFL teams in celebration of this great game and the Canadian Football League.”
