When is the money due?
First things first – you need to register to save your spot! After that, your team can begin fundraising for your $1,000 entrance fee. The money is due on or before game day.
How many people can I have on my team?
Each team can have a minimum of six and a maximum of 10 participants. For safety and fairness, we will not allow teams to exceed 10 people.
How long will my team be there?
The competition time is about 30 – 35 minutes (depending on how fast you sort!), but the entire time commitment is about an about an hour. Everyone is encouraged to stay and watch the competitions and enjoy the event after your competition is completed.
Should we show up early?
Yes, participants are asked to arrive 30 minutes prior to their time slot for instructions and a group photo.
What is this “after party” you speak of?! (2018 details)
Craft Beer Market is going to be joining us at the Food Sort Challenge! They will be there to hand out promotional offers and appetizers and let you know about what’s going on over at Craft (near the Bank Street entrance to Lansdowne).
After you’re done your competition (or before depending on when you compete… we won’t judge) head on over to the designated Food Sort Challenge section at Craft Beer Market and celebrate! There will be prizes, contests, music, $4 Ontario craft beer, and friends!
All right – I’m excited for the Challenge, but what else do you have for me? (2018 details)

Can I bring a friend to watch and cheer me on?
Yes, you can certainly bring your fans! We have a cheering section with bleachers where they can catch all the action.
Is there parking?
We will provide TWO complimentary parking tickets per team provided by Stericylce. Parking tickets are for the underground parking at TD Lansdowne Park. Any additional parking is at team’s expense. We encourage carpooling! There should be no problem with parking before 6 p.m.
Is this a very physical event?
You must be able to stand and move at a steady pace for 30 minutes. Some bending and lifting may be required. In the past, we’ve seen people work up a bit of a sweat – it all depends how competitive you are.
Is the venue wheelchair accessible?
Yes, the Aberdeen Pavilion is fully accessible. The competition involves a fair bit of movement, but we will certainly make accommodations requested. Please let us know if your team requires any special accommodations in advance.
What should we wear?
We always encourage people to wear costumes… everything is better when dressed up. But other than that, dress in layers so you can take adjust accordingly to temperature. No heels or open-toed shoes are permitted for safety reasons.
Each competition area will have a coat rack for your layers and bags.
What is the age requirement?
This event is intended for 16 years of age or older. Anyone under the age of 18 must have a waiver signed by their guardian. There are certain elements to the event that are intended for adult participants only.
