Bring Your Team to Lancaster, PA!

Dec 23, 2021

LANCASTER COUNTY has all the amenities of a big city but with a distinctive style that’s all our own. Boasting approximately 9,000 guest rooms, we have the state-of-the-art venues and facilities for a wide variety of events at a great value. Unique from traditional northeast locations, Lancaster County blends the convenience of being centrally located to the metropolitan areas of Philadelphia, Baltimore, Washington, DC and New York, with its own sophistication.

SPOOKY NOOK SPORTS Home to the largest indoor sports complex in America. Encompassing quality turf fields, a ninja warrior course and an adjacent full-size dome, the 17.5-acre building is stacked with sports, entertainment, and every kind of event imaginable.

LANCASTER COUNTY CONVENTION CENTER Providing more than 90,000 square feet of combined space for cheerleading competitions, volleyball tournaments and mixed martial arts events, this integrated facility is ideal for all athletic championships in a location that is convenient to northeast metropolitan cities – but not as demanding on your event budget.

THE KUNKEL AQUATIC CENTER A 21,000-square-foot natatorium housing the 50-meter x 25-yard McGinness Pool. McGinness Pool is the site of the annual Centennial Conference Swimming Championships and the NJ YMCA State Championships.

CLIPPER MAGAZINE STADIUM Clipper Magazine Stadium, located just north of downtown Lancaster City, is home to the Lancaster Barnstormers. The team is a member of the North Division of the Atlantic League of Professional Baseball. Clipper Magazine Stadium has become a venue that is utilized for far more than baseball - such as an expo center, a concert hall, and a Christmas village, among other things.


“[Discover Lancaster] has been a pivotal piece in the continued growth of our youth soccer tournaments here in Lancaster County. The professionalism and timeliness demonstrated by the staff when assisting our customers is a great value to our organization and PA Classics has clearly gained positive exposure, both locally and regionally, from our relationship with them.” — Mike Henning, Vice President and Tournament Director, PA Classics AC

“In over 10 years of producing national sports tours, I have never seen the carpet laid out as it was in Lancaster County…. plush and deep red! Our participants and spectators were for once not looked upon as invaders but as fellow Lancaster citizens for their duration of stay! Hospitality as never seen before!” — Bart Bayston, Best Unlimited
