Las Vegas LGBTQ Classic Sports Event

By Charlotte Robinson, December 27, 2023

The annual Sin City Classic Sports Festival takes place over Martin Luther King Weekend January 11th to 14th in Las Vegas. Each year the festival brings together our LGBTQ community for a weekend of competition & camaraderie. The Greater Los Angeles Softball Association announced that at least 19 sports will be participating in the 17th annual Sin City Classic Sports Festival with additional days of competition & a new exhibition in Rodeo. Jason Peplinski, Sin City Classic Co-Executive Director stated, “The Sin City Classic has become a staple of the LGBTQ+ sports community. Each year we work hard to create a safe space for our athletes to gather for a weekend of competition, fun & mostly importantly – community. As the festival grows & evolves with a diverse roster of both sports & participants, this year we’re welcoming the LGBTQ+ Rodeo to show off their sport to our attendees.” Additional sports competitions at this year’s festival include Bowling, Bridge, Cheerleading, Cornhole for Charity, Soft Tip Darts, Steel Tip Darts, Dodgeball, Flag Football, Golf, Indoor Rowing, Kickball, Pickleball, Soccer, Softball, Tennis, Ultimate Frisbee, Indoor Volleyball, Sand Volleyball & Wrestling & Grappling. For the past 16 years the tournament has grown to include 24 sports & approximately 10,000 athletes & fans. Each January during the Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. holiday weekend the festival kicks off with the Opening Night Registration Party held at the Flamingo Las Vegas. Competitions & nightly social events then take place around the city with the weekend culminating in the Closing Party. This year’s Closing Party takes place at the LINQ Promenade’s Brooklyn Bowl. The annual Sin City Classic Sports Festival is presented by Lexus.
