June 12th 10:00am - Whenever the party ends!
BATL Pickering

With IATC officially moved to the summer, and the banquet halls of the GTA fully booked with weddings for the foreseeable future due to COVID, this year we are unfortunately unable to present prom in the indoor hall setting it was in the past. We have taken the opportunity to reimagine what Axe Prom can be in an outdoor setting and still bring all the things that made prom great to this new environment. We present to you, Homecoming.

Homecoming will be a full day for getting together to celebrate our axe throwing community, bearing witness to incredible competition and honouring the champions of this year's events at an indoor/outdoor party hosted at the BATL Pickering venue.

The events of the day include hundreds of spectators cheering on the competitors of the IATC 2022 Finals and the CAN vs USA Skills Finals, followed by the Axe Throwing Awards Ceremony and this year's Homecoming Party to take the day well into the night. The indoor and outdoor viewing areas we have secured can accommodate hundreds of spectators comfortably for all of our party needs.

We have secured a massive outdoor space behind the BATL Pickering venue to make sure that we can comfortably hold hundreds of spectators and guests all day while everyone can watch and enjoy the competition live and on our giant projector screens. The loading bay doors of the Pickering venue will also be open so that the indoor and outdoor space is connected and feeding off of each other’s energy throughout the day.

After the Awards Ceremony, the Homecoming party will have a live DJ blasting tunes to get your body moving. There will be food available for purchase all day from our amazing friends at Cherry Street BBQ (Best BBQ in Toronto!) and plenty of bars to make sure you can keep yourself hydrated. Whether you are inside the BATL Pickering venue catching up with friends, under the tents on our giant outdoor patio, or getting your picture taken at one of our photobooths, we are sure this is going to be the Axe Throwing party of the year.

  • Spectator admission for the IATC Finals starting at 11:00 am
  • Spectator admission for the CAN vs USA Skills Championship Finals at 3:00 pm

As we look into dates for 2023 to make sure we can secure a Prom space, join us in the meantime for Homecoming, it promises to be the party event of the summer and you don’t want to miss it!
