The 17th Annual Hockey Fights MS Bethlehem, PA Men's Tournament will take place August 12-14, 2022 at The Steel Ice Center and The Rink at Lehigh Valley.  Registration is open to adult (18+) Men's (A, B, C, D) teams.  Proceeds from this event will once again benefit The Multiple Sclerosis Wellness Program at Good Shepherd Rehabilitation Network in Allentown, PA.  The majority of the games will be played at The Steel Ice Center in Bethlehem - a thriving community full of many options for shopping, dining, lodging, and entertainment including a casino within walking distance of the rink, outlets, and concert venues.  

Also taking place this same weekend is Musikfest.  Presented by ArtsQuest, this 10-day festival will include over 500 musical performances on 15 indoor and outdoor stages located throughout the city of Bethlehem.  Past performers have included the Stone Temple Pilots, Maroon 5, Boston, ZZ Top, Fuel, Hootie & the Blowfish, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Steve Miller Band, Chicago, Santana, and so many other big name bands!  In addition, Musikfest will also showcase over 60 food venders, visual arts and craft vendors, and a closing-night fireworks display that is visible from the rink.  Hockey, live music, an abundance of delicious food - what could be better?
