Grand Prix Sacramento

ChannelFireball.com and Cascade Games are proud to present Grand Prix Sacramento.

The weekend will feature special events for every kind of Magic: the Gathering enthusiast—from the casual player to the top-level professional. In addition, four Magic: the Gathering artists and more than a dozen of the largest vendors from around the world will be on hand to fill your every Magic: the Gathering need!

Located in the heart of the California State Capital, the Sacramento Convention Center is only a short drive from the Sacramento International Airport. The surrounding downtown area offers a wide variety of restaurants and shops to further enhance your Grand Prix experience.

Never experienced a Grand Prix? No problem!

There will be a free instructional seminar Friday afternoon with Team ChannelFireball members LSV and Ben Stark to prepare you for the main event. Team members will also be gunslinging Theros Sealed Deck throughout the weekend to help you hone your skills. All this and more will make Sacramento the perfect event to experience your first Grand Prix!

The Magic: The Gathering Grand Prix tournament series is a great reason to step up your game, catch up with old friends, meet some new ones, and play Magic: the Gathering. Grand Prix tournaments are world-wide open events that allow all Magic: the Gathering players to participate and experience the thrill of a large-scale competition. In addition to cash prizes, a high Planeswalker Points multiplier, and exclusive foil promo cards for participants, the Grand Prix features a host of other activities, including side events and artist signings. Find out more about the Grand Prix Sacramento tournament schedule here.
