The Gus Macker Returns to Rochester!


The Gus Macker 3 on 3 basketball tourney makes it third year downtown Rochester on June 29th and 30th. Held in the shadow of the legendary Blue Cross Arena on Court St and the downtown Riverside Festival site, the event features not only a competitive tournament for all ages and skill levels but also awesome family activities all day, both days. The Roc will be jamming as the Macker shares the downtown scene with the Rochester International Jazz Fest which include top jazz artists and many free shows.

All basketball games will feature paid referees to insure quality play and sportsmanship. The tournament will host evenly matched brackets for all age groups 8 to 80 years old. Everyone will have the opportunity to test their skill with our Free-Throw and 3-point Shooting Contest. High flying athletes can showcase their “hops” with the Dunk Contest that is certain to create a new “hoop-legend” instantly.

The Roc Gus Macker will feature local talented youth on our performing arts stage at the event.

These outstanding youth will display their artistic talents to entertain Macker fans and provide enjoyment for all throughout the weekend.

All proceeds from the Macker support youth sports programs in the area. Don’t miss your chance to “show your stuff ” and be part of one of this summer’s premier events. Come check out!
