Celebrate the Final Season at The Joe with the Detroit Red Wings

Modified: June 30, 2021 | Story by Lori Bremerkamp

To celebrate the end of an era, the Red Wings and Olympia Entertainment have launched the “Farewell Season at The Joe” campaign. It’s a yearlong celebration that will not only highlight historic games, but also entertainment acts and special events held at The Joe during the building’s illustrious 38-year history.

There will be championship and alumni celebrations, memorable giveaways and special entertainment performances leading up to the final regular-season home game on Sunday, April 9, 2017, against the New Jersey Devils.

You can get in on the action! Single-game tickets for the regular season can be purchased at the Joe Louis Arena box office, all Ticketmaster outlets or online at DetroitRedWings.com.


Where to Hangout Before and After the Game

Detroit is full of great places to grab a beer and a bite before a game. It’s probably a no-brainer that a place called Hockeytown Café would be one of the best. Pizza, burgers, sandwiches and more complement a large selection of beers.

After the game (hopefully a Red Wings victory!) there’s no shortage of places to grab a late-night snack or a celebratory drink, including Greektown favorites Pegasus Taverna and Fishbone’s.


Where to Get Your Wings Gear

If you’re heading to the game, or even just someplace local to watch it, make sure you have on your fan apparel.

While you’re sure to find some great gear at any of the local malls, for the best selection of Red Wings merchandise, shop Hockeytown Authentics during games at The Joe or at its second location in Troy. With fan gear for all ages, it has everything you need to cheer on the Wings.

Right now, you can purchase limited-edition Red Wings Stadium Series Jerseys, while supplies last. The store also has a vast selection of autographed pucks, game-worn jerseys, equipment and more. You can also shop the Red Wings online at shop.nhl.com.

You’ll be wearing your fan apparel for years to come because, while the Wings are ending an era at The Joe this season, they’ll be starting an exciting new chapter next season at the world-class Little Caesars Arena.
