KANJAM TOURNAMENT INFO

Can I still enter the KanJam Tournament?

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.


Can I play KanJam even though I'm not registered for the tournament?

Yes, but not in the tournament. We will have extra KanJam sets available for recreational play in the afternoon.


What is the format of the KanJam Tournament?

The format of this year's competition is the same format we followed last year. It will be a "blind draw double elimination" format. Teams can play their next opponent on any open court available in their quad. The champion from each quad will advance to the finals 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.

Of course! Can Jam fun is approved for all ages. We will be checking IDs and wrist banding individuals over the age of 21.


Can we bring our family dog, cat, iguana, chinchilla?

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.


Are tents, lawn chairs, etc. permitted?

Great question! Bring your favorite festival chairs and blankets but please no tents. These can obstruct another person's view of the stage.


Will there be tours of the brewery during Can Jam?

Tours will not be available during Can Jam. Come back and visit us on another weekend and we will show you around!


Can I purchase sweet Can Jam and other Sly Fox apparel at the event?

Absolutely! You can also purchase hip Sly Fox swag on our website.

FOOD / BEVERAGE

Can I bring my own food/beverage?

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!


What are the food and beverage selections for the day? Will there be food for the kids?

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.


Will the Sly Fox Tastin' Room be open?

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.


Do you accept cash and cards?

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.
