While COVID-19 isn’t in the Hoopfest playbook, prioritizing the health and safety of our community is. With that in mind, we’ve moved Hoopfest to August 22nd and 23rd to safely execute the Best Basketball Weekend on Earth.
We will continue to monitor COVID-19 throughout the summer to ensure that August will be a safe time to celebrate together here in Hooptown USA.

Build Your Own Brackets
Do you have specific teams in mind that you’ve been waiting all year to play and determine who really is the best? If so, then build your own bracket. Simply sign up for your regular Hoopfest non-elite division. Then round up either seven or 15 more Hoopfest teams you want to play against and who agree to play against you and we’ll create your own bracket.
Whether you’re taking a break between games or supporting a friend, there’s plenty of fun to be had off the court too! Taste food you’ve never heard of, or get a cool new (temporary) tattoo to top off your weekend at Hoopfest 2020.
