Markham Launches Olympic Square in Downtown Markham

Rio Olympic FlagMARKHAM, ON – August 9, 2016 – On Friday, August 5, the City of Markham, in collaboration with The Remington Group, launched Markham's Olympic Square featuring a video wall to telecast the 2016 Rio Summer Olympic Games. Mayor Frank Scarpitti wanted a hub in Markham Centre where the Markham community could come together to display our Olympic spirit especially with so many hometown athletes qualifying for this year's Olympics.

Everyone is invited to cheer on our Canadian and Markham athletes in Markham's Olympic Square. The square is open daily from 11 a.m. - 11:00 p.m. from August 5 - August 21, and is located at 169 Enterprise Blvd. (south side of Cineplex). Bring your friends and support our athletes in the open square as they compete for gold in the Summer Olympic Games.

During our Road to Rio celebration event on July 29, a few of our Markham athletes sent in their own video thank you messages to Mayor Frank Scarpitti and Markham for our ongoing support. View these messages on our Road to Rio YouTube playlist.

We wish all of our athletes great luck at the Games! A schedule of when our Markham Athletes are competing is below. For specific event scheduling, visit olympics.cbc.ca
