The Backyard Classic

April 6 @ 9:00 am - 7:00 pm

|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every day that begins at 9:00 am, repeating until April 7, 2024

The Backyard Classic in its 15th year is proud to support PUNT Buffalo’s Pediatric Cancer Collaborative, with all proceeds from the event.

This Event is unique and unlike most pond hockey tournaments, featuring full nets and goalies, bringing the real feel of the game of hockey, outdoors where it all started. Join us while we bring hockey back to its roots, outdoors, at the Buffalo Riverworks Complex, for a fun filled family friendly event.

There will be weekend long activities, Buffalo Themed and Hockey related Vendors, Live Music performing Saturday night, and the Ropes Course open for the kids before, after or in between games all weekend.

Over the last 14 years the Backyard Classic has had over 600 teams, 3,500 players with more than $280,000 donated to Western New York Charities!

All ages Pond Hockey 6U – Adults all playing on 6 Rinks at the same time.

Bringing Hockey back to its roots, outdoors, where hockey began.

3 Game Guarantee plus playoffs.

It doesn’t get any better than outdoor hockey on the Buffalo Waterfront!

Come be a part of Buffalo’s biggest outdoor Winter Event! Raising money for P.U.N.T. Pediatric Cancer Collaborative
