About The Venue
The River Warrior Tournament is held at Buffalo RiverWorks the city’s newest premier waterfront, boating, sports, music and entertainment destination located along the banks of the Buffalo River.
The interior space at RiverWorks will hold: a 5,000 person art, entertainment and concert venue; the first permanent, purpose built, flat track roller derby track in the world; a martial arts dojo; four bars; a restaurant and a concession food area; locker rooms for sports leagues; restrooms and a kitchen.

RiverWorks‘ two outdoor ice rinks are covered by a metal pavilion with open sides to provide shelter while maintaining an outdoor feel. These ice rinks play host for hockey leagues and events, curling leagues and events and figure skating practice and events in the winter. In the summer the concrete slabs of the rinks are used for a variety of sporting and event program space including: roller hockey; roller derby; tennis; volleyball as well as concerts and events.
Finally, RiverWorks is building the first ever fully functioning brewery to be retrofit into an existing grain silo. The former GLF Grain Silo will house the RiverWorks‘ brewery, that will use direct tank-to-tap lines for the three interior bars as well as a fourth bar located in the silo itself, situated directly next to the RiverWorks Beer Garden, which will be constructed amongst the foundational remnants of another former grain silo.
