There’s a lot brewing this Saturday at Slyfox’s annual CANJAM Music Festival in Pottstown. The free all-day event features lots of good music, good beer, good food and a huge KanJam™ competition. The outdoor game for four players has become a popular national pastime.
KanJam is played much like horseshoes with teammates on either end of the court; pins are replaced by 2’ tall, open-topped cans (kans), and instead of shoes, players toss a flying disc. The main difference is that teammates help one another score points by deflecting the disc into the kan.
Discs start flying in the KanJam tournament at 10 a.m.
Entertainment begins at 1 p.m. The lineup includes:
1 p.m. – Michael Tiernan
2:30 p.m. – Matt Spitko
4 p.m. – Mason Porter
5:30 p.m. – Travel Lanes
7 p.m. – Waylon Speed
