McMaster Children’s Party

McMaster University is committed to fostering an inclusive community by providing families of McMaster employees and retirees with the opportunity to gather together.  At the annual McMaster Children’s Party, we build a greater awareness and understanding of each other’s cultures by celebrating the diversity of our children and holiday celebrations.

On February 19th, 2023, make the most of Family Day by supporting your local hockey team and getting the chance to lace up your skates for a full day of family fun. 

McMaster University employees and families are invited to attend the Hamilton Bulldogs hockey game versus the Kingston Frontenacs at 2:00 p.m. followed by an hour-long exclusive McMaster families’ open skate at 4:30 p.m. Both events will take place at the FirstOntario Centre in Hamilton.  

Registration will close on Tuesday, February 14th, 2023.
