HAVE YOU REGISTERED for the 2015 FUNTASTIC?

Remember back in the early 1980's, the average NHL'er was earning just over $100k, a MacIntosh was still edible and only birds tweeted. There was the Rubik’s Cube rage, big hair bands and music hits included- Do They Know It's Christmas? by Band Aid, Ghostbusters, or how about Careless Whisper...that was 1984. It was also that time when a group of slo-pitch players in Vernon started a slo-pitch tournament – and Funtastic was born.


It was 1984 when Okanagan Springs Brewery was born as well and coincidently, 55 teams played the first ever Funtastic Slo-Pitch Tournament and $610 was raised for Special Olympics. Now 30 years later, the tournament sells out at capacity of 216 teams and more than $1.5 million has been raised for our communities.


Funtastic Sports Society will be celebrating 30 years young and we want you to join us and celebrate this milestone! We're also open to suggestions to make this a celebration to remember, so feel free to drop us a note and give us This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

Canada's Greatest Slo-Pitch Tournament & Music Festival

Each year the Funtastic Sports Society hosts Canada's largest slo-pitch tournament and music festival. As a non-profit organization, all funds raised by Funtastic are used to support sport and recreation in the community. 

 

About Us

Since 1984, the Vernon and District Funtastic Sports Society has been working to help make our community a great best place to live, learn, work and play. As a result of hosting the annual fundraiser- Funtastic, the society has been able to contribute more than $1.5 million back to the community.

We are dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of residents by advocating for active lifestyles, the opportunity to enjoy all sports, partnering with and funding community initiatives and fostering athletic participation.

We don't do this alone. While we are a registered non-profit organization, we do not receive any government funding to fulfill our mission. Instead we host an annual fundraiser- Canada's largest slo-pitch tournament and music festival and we're supported by an amazing group of individuals - our 525 volunteers. Each year the Funtastic event brings approximately $4.5 million in direct economic benefit to the local business community.

We thank our many partners including 120 local business sponsors, local government agencies and local community groups who help us each year host the Funtastic Sport & Music Festival.

  Vision Statement - Building a Better Community Through Sport

  Value Statement- Respect, Integrity, Leadership, Teamwork and Commitment

Attention Vendors.

The Funtastic Slo-Pitch & Music Festival application for vendors will open in January 2015. Funtastic has a limited number of vendor vacancies each year. Many of our vendors return year after year causing us to have a very low turnover rate. Please contact the office if you would like more information or questions answered on how you can become a vendor in 2015.
