    News Release

    SPENCER MAKENZIE’S FISH CO. BRINGS THE WORLD’S
    LARGEST CORNHOLE TOURNAMENT TO THE
     VENTURA CO. FAIRGROUNDS

    Televised live for the first time, The Throw Down Cornhole Festival offers cash prizes totaling $350,000 from August 26 – 28

    (Ventura, CA) – The nation’s, and the world’s, largest cash cornhole tournament returns to beautiful beachside Ventura on August 26 – 28. This California-classic multi-day party will feature the coast’s best food, drinks, and live music, as well as DJs spinning great music throughout the tournament for players and spectators alike.

    Now in its 12th year, The Throw Down Cornhole Festival has grown to be the world’s largest cornhole festival offering an unprecedented $350,000 in cash prizes going to the winning teams.  With 1,024 teams composed of the sport’s best players, the tournament has garnered the attention of national television networks and will be televised live by CBS Sports on Friday, August 26.  ESPN will tape the entire weekend and air the tournament in the following weeks.

    Fans of this family friendly sport, outdoor activity enthusiasts, music lovers and foodies alike will want to mark their calendars to descend upon the Ventura County Fairgrounds to watch masters of cornhole and send off summer in style.

    For those who want to play cornhole just for fun, all festival attendees are invited to play for free on the open-to-the-public courts, in the midst of the excitement but without the high stakes.  Players can also join non-tournament cash blind draw games to try their luck.  A big hit with Throw Down enthusiasts is “Cornhole Trebuchet” where players buy tickets for the chance to launch giant bean bags 150 feet at an oversized cornhole board.  Accuracy at that distance is challenging, but the lucky winner takes the ‘pot’ which can add up to thousands of dollars.

    When the sun goes down, the party begins and headlining this year’s festival is Spotify fan favorite Sunny Ledfurd, in his first west coast appearance. Keeping the beat going all weekend long are Ventura County’s superstars A.D.D, Rey Fresco, Mandex, and Morie & the Heavy Hitters, with more bands being added in the upcoming weeks.

    Spencer Makenzie’s 12th annual three-day Throw Down Cornhole Festival will take place from Friday, August 26 through Sunday, August 28, 2022. Friday’s activities are from Noon to 10 pm; Saturday hours are from 10 am to 10 pm; and Sunday hours are 10 am to 9 pm.   Tickets are priced at $25 for a day pass or $40 for three days.  Children 12 and under are free and there is a kid’s play area.  The Throw Down will take place at Ventura County Fairgrounds, located at 10 W. Harbor Blvd., Ventura CA 93001.

    About Spencer Makenzie’s Fish Company
    Spencer Makenzie’s is a celebrated seafood staple of Ventura’s local food-scape.  Founded in 2007 by John Karayan and his wife Jennifer as a festival concession, the Karayan’s named their award-winning restaurant after their two children – their son Spencer and their daughter Makenzie.   With the goal of offering fresh, healthful food at consumer-friendly prices, its reputation was quickly established at such popular Ventura events as the Ventura County Fair, the Aloha Festival and the C Street Long Board Classic.

    During that time, they perfected such signature dishes as Clam Chowder, Shrimp & Fish Ceviche and their famous Giant Fish Tacos into unique recipes that provide a tastier, healthier and delicious alternative to typical “Fast Food”.  Everything is made to order, they only use sushi grade fish, produce is purchased from local vendors and 100% of their famous sauces are homemade.

    About Cornhole
    Cornhole or Corn Toss is similar to horseshoes except that you use wooden boxes called cornhole platforms and corn bags instead of horseshoes and metal stakes.  Contestants take turns pitching their corn bags at the inclined platform until a contestant reaches the score of 21 points.  A corn bag in the hole scores 3 points, while one on the platform scores 1 point.  Scoring can be swift and the lead may change hands several times in a match before the winner is decided.  The game is generally played tournament style with an individual or team being named the champion at the end of the tournament.

    Thought to have originated in Germany in the 14th Century, the game surfaced in the Ohio Valley in the 19th Century.  Also known as corn toss, bean toss, dummy boards, doghouse, soft horseshoes and Baggo, cornhole became widely played at tailgate events, contributing to its nationwide popularity.
