Regina Rocks Mosaic Stadium “know before the show”
It’s almost time to rock Regina’s iconic Mosaic Stadium. Before the big day, the City of Regina and the Regina Exhibition Association Limited (REAL – operator of Evraz Place) have some reminders for guests coming to enjoy the entertainment as the stadium goes through another test.
“Saturday is an important day as we undergo a second major test for the stadium,” said Mayor Michael Fougere. “For the first time, we’ll be testing a concert loading in an out, seating on the field level and upper concourse areas, the food and beverage plan and overall operations. It’s a significant milestone for the stadium project as we get closer to the July 1 grand opening.”
“In addition to an evening of great entertainment, we encourage people to come early when the gates open at 4 p.m. so they can enjoy the atmosphere and some of the food creations offered at the concessions,” said Allan. “There’s something on the menu for everyone, from traditional stadium favourites to more inventive options.”
Guests will be able to try out unique menu items offered by Rock Creek Tap & Grill, Beer Brothers Gastropub & Deli, Coney Island Poutine Café, Western Pizza, Wok Box and Sweet Ambrosia Bakeshoppe. The full lineup of food and beverages won’t be available at Saturday’s event because some of the service areas are still being completed. Guests will see an expanded selection at future events.
Those attending the show should be aware of some important details before they go:
- Parking at Evraz Place will be by permit only to test the on-site parking plan for upcoming Rider games. There will be no public parking at Evraz Place on May 27.
