2024 International Axe Throwing Day

May 15th, 2024

International Axe Throwing Day is fast approaching on June 13th, and this year, we’re thrilled to announce an initiative that’s not only about bringing our community together but also about making a tangible difference in our local communities. Introducing “Axe of Kindness,” a special event dedicated to raising funds for local charities and spreading positivity far and wide! We’re calling on all our affiliates to join us in this endeavor and help make a meaningful difference in your communities.

Get Involved

Connect with your local WATL venue to organize an axe throwing event on June 13th, where participants can donate to support a local charity of choice. Whether it’s a friendly competition or a casual gathering, every contribution counts. Here are some examples of events that could be hosted:

  • Discounted walk-ins
  • Tournament
  • Marathon league
  • Online/in-house raffle
  • How to hang and/or care for your axe (have a local maker teach a class)
  • Throw with a Pro workshop

Spread the word to local news organizations and media contacts you have. Help encourage participation in your local community and help your local venue with PR and exposure.
