It's the 50th Anniversary of the Lilac City Tournament!
Welcome to the website of one of the Largest Independently owned Bowling Tournaments in America!
We want to thank all of our bowlers and especially our Group Leaders for helping us reach this milestone!

As we move forward, I would like to mention a change for our 2018 events. Due to some long meetings and discussions with AMF/Bowlmor,
it was decided for the betterment of the tournament to change the venues for our events. Our Team Event and Lilac No-Tap will now be held at
AMF Dewey Garden Lanes, 4470 Dewey Ave, Rochester, NY 14612. Our Doubles and Singles Events will now be held at
AMF Gates Lanes, 645 Spencerport Rd, Rochester, NY 14606, where our Team Event was formerly hosted.
We are excited about this year and feel that the change will be a positive one.

The Entry forms for both of our tournaments are available here on the site as a .pdf download. We would also like to remind everyone that the USBC Open Championships will be in neighboring Syracuse, NY this year! If you have never bowled that event, we encourage you to check the USBC website for details. Those bowling the Nationals who have never been to Rochester, we invite you to make the short drive,
come here to visit and bowl! We have a lot to offer as does our fine city!

In the interim, I encourage you to check back often and visit our Facebook Page for information and Lilac updates.
As always we sincerely appreciate the support and interest from all of our bowlers!
