The biggest flipcup tournament in the USA

Denver, CO

What is FlipCupalooza?

Welcome to the 9th Annual Flipcup'alooza Tournament & Block Party!
This is the biggest flipcup event in the country, and its right here in Denver, Colorado. The tournament is CoED Teams of 5's, with mandatory themes.

64-128 teams, 16 Divisions (tables), Round Robin tourney, expanded Burly (32) Championship Bracket. 50+ beer kegs, T-shirts, DJ Escal8, and food stations will keep your senses overloaded. So fun it'll hurt!

It's simple... this is the natural evolution of a house party. We've outgrown our garage in Wash Park and it was time to turn it up a couple of notches!
The insanity has been relocated to Fado's Irish Bar in downtown Denver, in LoDo, on the Coors Field walk way. Our beats stro for the event is Denver's own Dj Escal8, shredding tracks on twin tables and causing dance offs everywhere you look! Their will be 16 tables of officially sanctioned competitive shenanigans. Beer vendors will have a constant flow of your favorite giggle juice and themed maniacs running around bragging about how bad@ss their teams are. Chest bumps and High 5's are not optional. The tournament will last from 3-10p, followed by the award presentation, and then we'll shove into the bar and cause more trouble. That Eighties Band will keep the party in flow once the tournament ends. Can you hang?

Scout talent and size up the competition at Free Agent Practices & Pickups, Thursday nights at select LoDo bars as we close in on Sept.13. Stay tuned.
