Relax with friends over a leisurely game of cornhole. Not familiar with the game? It goes by many names including corn toss, bean toss, and more. If that still doesn't ring a bell, you'll pick it up very quickly if you've ever played a game of horseshoes! You can also test your hand-eye coordination with wall hooky or giant Jenga.

Not up for being a part of the action yourself? Well swing by the Sports Zone where you can sit-back, relax and enjoy the weekend's biggest games! Stay tuned – we'll post a schedule of games as the festival nears.

Before you start to play, be sure to purchase a full pint of your favorite brew (only $4) so you don't go thirsty!
