There's no festival in Canada as large and great as the Funtastic Sport and Music Festival. Since 1985, Vernon, B.C. is visited by people from all over the country to play in the Slo-pitch tournament on the July long-weekend. People also come for the three nights of live classic rock entertainment. The 2017 A&W music festival is bringing '70s and '80s rock, some country and more.
This is a mixed slo-pitch tournament with five men and five women always on the field. There are approximately 60 teams registered every year. Players are encouraged to dress up in costumes and prizes are given to the best-costumed teams and most sportsmanlike teams.
