Sly Fox Brewing Company's Can Jam Music Festival is curated to feature independent talent, authentic and original, just like Sly Fox beers!
The Can Jam Music Festival celebrates Sly Fox Brewing Company's role as an early adopter, evangelist and promoter of cans—the greatest packaging trend in the craft brewing industry. Stay tuned for a list of independent bands performing at this year's Can Jam Music Festival!
Registration will be available online via the link above.
The festival is an all-day event but here are some helpful times:
10am - Discs start flying in our KanJam tournament with 160 teams competing to win their weight in beer. Come watch the matches!
12pm - First musical act hits the stage.
MUSIC LINEUP FOR THE DAY:
It's FREE! There is no admission for this event but there will be scrumptious Sly Fox food, beer and gear available for purchase.
Nope! Just show up!
If the registration link is active on this page then, YES! If not, sorry tournament registration is closed. But, if you attend this year, you can check out the competition for next year.
Yes, but not in the tournament. We will have extra KanJam sets available for recreational play in the afternoon.
The format of this year's competition is the same format we followed last year. It will be a "blind draw double elimination" format. There will be 5 quadrants with 8 courts per quad. Each quadrant will hold a 32 team double elimination tournament. Teams can play their next opponent on any open court available in their quad. The champion from each quad will advance to the final four on center court. Every match will be a best of three series.
At the start of the tournament we will draw team names for spots on the tournament bracket. The first team drawn on the line will be number 1, the second team drawn on the line numbered 2 and so on.
After each winner's bracket games the winner moves over to the next blank line in the winner's bracket and the loser goes to the corresponding letter in the loser's bracket. After each loser's bracket game the winner moves over to the next line, but losers in the loser's bracket are out of the tournament. Play will continue until there are only two teams left to play for the championship.
1. All teams must consist of two (2) players.
2. All teams must register online at SlyFoxBeer.com/canjam prior to the event.
3. All teams need to arrive between 9 and 9:30am. Participant meeting is at 9:45 in front of the stage. The first discs fly at 10am.
4. Each team receives 2 CanJam tees, 2 food tickets, 4 beer tickets, 2 Sly Fox koozies, 2 Sly Fox drawstring bags and the chance to win their weight in beer!

Pets are welcome but please know that everyone will want to take a photo of your pet iguana on a leash. We also ask that you consider your pet's behavior around large groups/other animals and decide if it's a good venue for them. Sly Fox will not be held responsible for their actions or picking up your pet's doo-doo.
Great question! Bring your favorite festival chairs and blankets but please no tents. These can obstruct another person's view of the stage.
Tours will not be available during Can Jam. Come back and visit us on another weekend and we will show you around!
Absolutely! You can also purchase hip Sly Fox swag on our website.
Sly Fox asks that you refrain from bringing all outside food and beverages into the festival. This helps us to keep Can Jam a *FREE*, non-ticketed event for our guests. Please be courteous of our request so that everyone can enjoy the *FREE* day of fun with spectacular music from national touring acts!
We'll have plenty of delicious Sly Fox fare like pizzas, bbq and brats! In addition to a wide selection of Sly Fox beers, our friends at Manatawny Still Works will be on hand offering samples of their craft distilled spirits and cocktails. Non-alcoholic beverages including water and soda will also be available for purchase.
Yes, but we will have a limited menu for the event. Don't worry, our lip-smacking pizza is on the list! Due to the number of guests we are expecting, unfortunately there will be no carry out beer available, nor will there be growler fills, samplers, or our usual $1 taco special.
All transactions outside will be cash only. Low on cash? There is an ATM on site in the Tastin' Room. Cards will be accepted for orders placed inside the Tastin' Room.
