MAY 15, 2020 UPDATE:
The Big House team is monitoring the COVID-19 situation closely and will have an update on the status of this year’s event later this summer. Although scheduled for October, we don’t wish to promote the event date or venue information unless things have calmed down, as the safety of our prospective attendees during this global pandemic is what’s most important.
What is The Big House?
The Big House is the largest Super Smash Brothers event series in the fall. Since 2011, it has been the go-to annual convention for Smash fans not only in the Midwest, but across the world. Over three days, The Big House runs a singles (1v1) event, doubles (2v2) event, and various exhibitions for Super Smash Bros. 64, Super Smash Bros. Melee, and Super Smash Bros. Ultimate.
The Big House event is open to all Smash players and fans! Even if you’re not a tournament competitor, we have plenty of arcade games and side events to participate in at the venue, including the all-new GP Big House this year. There’s something for everyone here!
