There’s more than $200,000 dollars on the line, making the Throw Down one of the most lucrative cornhole competitions as well.

Live music on Friday and Saturday, food, craft beer, vendors and more will add to the festive atmosphere.

It’s a far cry from the tournament’s humble origins in 2010 as a simple activity at the Annual Summer Block Party put on by Spencer Makenzie’s Fish Company. The casual seafood joint, located at the corner of Ash Street and Thompson Boulevard in downtown Ventura.
