11th Midsummer’s Festival Kubb Tournament

Kubb (pronounced koob) is a traditional Nordic game played in Europe. U.S. Tournaments continue to grow and are drawing hundreds of players from numerous states. Kubb is an easy-to-learn lawn game that has been played for over 1,000 years. Invented (reportedly) by the Vikings, Kubb can be described as a combination of bowling, bocce and horseshoes. The object of the game is to knock over opposing team’s kubbs and the King before they knock over yours. The king rules all…if a team knocks over the king before the end of the game, they lose. Form a team and join in the Midsummer’s Festival fun! Perfect for any age.

Registration begins at 11:00 am. Play begins at 12:00 pm with four rounds guaranteed! A fee of $25 per team (2-3 persons to a team) is required.

Registration Deadline: June 15, 2023
