March Madness Jackknife Tournament

« All Events

It’s a favorite pastime of Amish youth.  Perhaps spurred on by basketball’s March Madness, a grassroots-organized jackknife tournament – complete with its own bracketology – emerged several years ago in Bird-in-Hand.  The rounds take place Wednesday, March 8 and 15 at 7 pm near the counter of the Bird-in-Hand Family Restaurant.  (We suggest calling Robin at the Restaurant, (717) 768-1500, to confirm that the contest is happening each week.)
