For the first time in new Mosaic Stadium, every home game will now feature unique themes and entertainment with 10 theme days this season. In addition to fan favourites, Canada Day/Home Opener, Thursday Night Football, Family Day and Labour Day Classic are six new themes; Riders R Back, Sasky Saturday, Country Day, Saturday Night 80s Party, Community Appreciation Day and 13th Man Appreciation Day. 

This year, the Club is launching the Riders Halftime Summer Concert Series taking place across five games throughout the summer, beginning July 1st Canada Day/Home Opener and ending September 1st with our Labour Day game. Recording artists from Saskatchewan and across Canada including Big Sugar, Tenille Arts, and Bombargo will perform with two more to be announced shortly.

Every game will also now feature the Pil Country DJ presented by Molson Coors, to entertain and help drive Rider Fan energy throughout the game!

The Coors Light Party in the Park kicks off on June 6th and starts three hours before every game, complete with great food, music, entertainment, and prizes. It will feature a family friendly kids’ zone, football drill area and performances from the Rider Entertainment Teams including DJ, 620 CKRM Pep Band, Drumline, New 620 CKRM Cheer Team, and of course Gainer.

“The best fans in the country deserve the best game day experience in the country. That’s why we’re coming together at Mosaic Stadium with our Partners to give Rider Nation the best live sports entertainment possible,” says Anthony Partipilo, Chief Brand Officer.
