The Bay Area Classic is second only to the U.S. National Yo-yo Contest in terms of prestige and competition, though some players actually focus as much emphasis on winning the BAC as Nationals or even the World Yo-Yo Contest.

California has produced some of the greatest modern yo-yo players in the world, and the BAC is the one contest each year they are all guaranteed to attend.

Watch yo-yo expert Yuuki Spencer’s physics-defying tricks as he performs a demonstration at a past event.

Yo-Yo Tricks & Free BBQ | 2016 Bay Area Classic Yo-Yo Contest

Kick it in Japantown Peace Plaza in San Francisco on Sunday, May 25, 2014 to watch, meet and learn from some of the Bay Area’s top yo-yo tricksters.

In past years, the gathering has begun around 1 pm. This is an informal event, so there’s no competition, but when you put a bunch of yo-yo experts together in one place, you’re bound to see trick swapping.

BYOB and BYOYOYO – though there are usually some loaners to spare, if you want to give some tricks a try.

Please Note: Typically Sunday Funday is held in Dolores Park, but in 2014 the park is under construction, so there won’t be a free BBQ in the park.
