The Niagara Lacrosse Invitational boasts a location unlike any other lacrosse tournament and festival. Hosted at Old Fort Niagara State Park , which sits on a peninsula where the mighty Niagara River and Lake Ontario meet. On a clear day you can see the Toronto skyline and Niagara on the Lake, Ontario as you look across the breathtaking water views. The State Park offers a large pool and water slide complex, boat launches, picnic pavilions, and tours of the historic Fort Niagara. All that is on-site and there is a ton to do within minutes of the park in Niagara Falls as well.
The Niagara Lacrosse Invitational is perfectly situated in an area where summertime brings out the best in the Niagara USA and Canada region. That, coupled with terrific competition, exposure to college coaches, and a history of excellent lacrosse makes the Niagara Lacrosse Invitational a summertime ‘laxcation’ destination.
Games are played all day Saturday and Sunday. Schedule will posted prior to the event.
The Buffalo-Niagara Falls region is incredibly accessible. The Buffalo Niagara International Airport features 110 daily non-stop flights with service to 18 cities and it’s the 8th most affordable airport in the country to fly through.
