The 2016 World YoYo Contest location has officially been announced, and it’s Cleveland, Ohio! National YoYo Master and YoYoNews editor Steve Brown will be the lead organizer for the event, with support from the Cleveland Sports Commission, International YoYo Federation, and US National YoYo League.
Cleveland was ranked one of the Top Ten best food cities in the United States by TIME Magazine and Jetsetter, and has been called one of the best cities to visit in 2015 by Travel + Leisure, the LA Times, Fodor’s Travel, and Forbes.
Recently, more than $16.7 billion of public and private investment has been pumped into Downtown Cleveland, including nearly $3 billion of visitor-related infrastructure development. Cleveland currently sees more than 16 million tourist visitors annually.
The event will take place in downtown Cleveland, within walking distance of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame and some of the very best restaurants the city has to offer including Michael Symon’s Lola and Jonathan Sawyer’s Greenhouse Tavern. The official venue will be announced soon.
