Pensacola to host the 84th Annual Southern Bowling Congress
Pensacola has been awarded the Host City bid for the 84th Annual Southern Bowling Congress Bowling Tournament. More than 5,000 attendees are expected to compete in the tournament which will be held over a five-weekend period between February 26 and March 28, 2021. Hotels throughout the Pensacola Bay Area will be welcoming our competitor-visitors, which are expected to generate approximately $23 million dollars in economic revenue for our community.
Pensacola welcomed more than 3,500 students for the SkillsUSA Florida State Championships April 7-10. Keeping to the association’s by-laws of changing destinations every three years, next year will end the event’s three-year period in Pensacola and the competition moves to Jacksonville. Hosting SkillsUSA generates approximately two-million dollars in revenue for our community. We hope to have the opportunity to bring the competition back to Pensacola, in 2024.
