A Village of Tents Becomes Spectator Plaza for the 2012 NHL Winter Classic


Once a year, the National Hockey League Winter Classic transforms an outdoor stadium, in this case, Philadelphia’s Citizen’s Bank Park, into an old fashioned ice hockey experience. Working in conjunction with the City of Philadelphia, the NHL extended its celebration of the outdoor game between the New York Rangers and Philadelphia Flyers with its official 2012 Bridgestone NHL Winter Classic® Spectator Plaza. A free, three-day fan festival built in tents just outside the gates of Citizens Bank Park™, Spectator Plaza was an entertainment festival for fans of all ages with live musical performances, interactive hockey-themed attractions, prizes and giveaways, food, beverage, and merchandise tents with officially licensed Rangers® and Flyers® NHL Winter Classic merchandise.  EventQuip installed an entire village of tents and structures to create Spectator Plaza, which included tents for GEICO, Coors, Verizon, Honda, Molson Canadian and Bridgestone, amongst many others.
