The Allan Cup Comes To Rosetown!
Rosetown, Saskatchewan is the proud host venue for the 2018 Allan Cup. The Allan Cup is the trophy awarded annually to the National Senior Men’s Ice Hockey Champions of Canada. It has been competed for since 1909. For one week on the prairies, all eyes will be on Rosetown, Saskatchewan, as we host the National Championship that has some of the deepest history in sports.
Rosetown has always been a major hockey town and has been home to the Rosetown Redwings, both senior and minor teams, for decades. In 2018, the Allan Cup will be held at the SaskCan Centre. The SaskCan Centre, aka, the “Banner Barn” has been home to many hockey events over the years, but none as big or historic as the Allan Cup.
Rosetown is situated in the heart of West Central Saskatchewan, centrally located among four major centres – North Battleford, Swift Current, Saskatoon, and Kindersley. Rosetown sits at the junction of Highways 4 and 7. In one hour, you can be in Saskatchewan’s largest city, Saskatoon, and Rosetown is less than a three-hour drive to our capital city and home of the Saskatchewan Roughriders, Regina.
Rosetown boasts a stable population of approximately 2,500 people and is a vibrant community offering over 200 businesses to serve the surrounding areas and visitors to our town. Rosetown also offers a full range of cultural, recreational, and economic opportunities. Rosetown provides a great environment in which to raise a family. Walter Aseltine School (K-6) and Rosetown Central High School (7-12) offer classes to approximately 580 students. Great Plains College delivers many education and career services to adults. We are served by a six-person RCMP detachment, plus a Bylaw Enforcement/Peace Officer, volunteer Fire Department, 911 emergency calling, and Citizens on Patrol. The first settlers arrived in the Rosetown district in 1904. Rosetown’s name was taken from James and Anne Rose, the earliest settlers in the area.
