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.
Since 1985, 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 non-profit BC registered organization, we do not receive any government funding. 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

The Funtastic Slo-Pitch & Music Festival application for vendors is now closed. 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.
