The Greater Muskegon Jaycees Annual Snowfest will return to Downtown Muskegon Saturday, February 2, 2019.  The downtown winter festival features a jam-packed Saturday including popular events such as the “Battle of the Bowls Chili Cook-Off”, a "Battle of the Bloodies" competition, a Snow Volleyball Tournament and a Cornhole Tournament -- concluding the day with a themed 80s Ski Party.  

The Cornhole and Snow Volleyball Tournament will run simultaneously on Western Avenue between 3rd and 4th street. Registration begins at 9am and tournaments begin at 10am.  Trophies and cash prizes will be given to 1st and 2nd place teams in each tournament. Pre-event registration is requested (see above).  Cost to play is $30 per cornhole team of 2 and $60 per volleyball team of 4.  

Partnering with area restaurants and taverns is a key component in Snowfest.  The popular Battle of the Bowls Chili Cook-off will take place from 11am to 2pm on Saturday, February 2 at Frauenthal Center/Hilt Building 3rd Floor. Area restaurants will go head to head to see who has the best Chili.  Chili samples will be sold in full (12 4oz samples) or half (6 4oz samples) tickets for $10 and $5 as a presale or $15 and $10 the day of the event. Participating restaurants will be announced soon!

This year is the second year of the "Battle of the Bloodies" -- a contest to identify Muskegon's favorite Bloody Mary. It will be held in conjunction with the Battle of the Bowls from 11:00am – 2:00pm at the Frauenthal Center/Hilt Building 3rd Floor.  Check back here for ticket information. 

The 2019 Snowfest activities will conclude with an 80s ski party in partnership with Racquets Bar and Grill. Bring your best spandex winter gear, your big hair, and get ready for music and dancing!
