Table hockey competitors from across the U.S. and Canada will face off this weekend.
Buffalo will host North America’s inaugural Table Hockey Festival, Exhibitions, and Championships Friday through Sunday at Buffalo RiverWorks, 359 Ganson St. Several dozen table hockey competitors from across the U.S. and Canada will converge on RiverWorks to face off this weekend. There will be 50 hockey sets spread across RiverWorks’ floor for gameplay, including 10 from the Clarence-based Innovative Concepts in Entertainment, which is behind the bubble hockey game Super Chexx. SoHo Table Hockey and Stiga models will also be available for play.
The festival will include a charity event on Friday night, and amateur and professional tournaments on Saturday that encourage public participation, as well as opportunities to watch the professionals face off on Saturday and Sunday for a $1,000 prize.
