Things to Bring & Other Event Info

This is a fun, family friendly event, with a lot of vendors and other events going on around us. Many families like to bring extra chairs and some bring pop-up tents to lounge under. It’s a great place to grab some food and drinks from our vendors and enjoy some time with your friends and family while you watch some great sporting action. Besides the Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, there will be professional volleyball, professional jetski, cornhole tournaments, live music, and much more.

In case of rain: The tournament is held under a giant tent that has room for the spectators to also get under, if needed.  Definitely come prepared to have a fun time in a unique atmosphere.
