Since its inaugural year in 2008, Phishapalooza has become a premier American Cancer Society fundraising event in the Twin Cities area. In addition to camaraderie with hundreds of fellow cancer crusaders from the local cybersecurity/fraud/IT community, you’ll enjoy locally-sponsored adult beverages, food truck fare, live music, and even a little ice fishing for those so inclined.

Stay warm in our huge, heated tent and deluxe hospitality huts (fish houses), but please dress appropriately for the weather!

Pre-registration for this event is required. The event is free to attend, but a donation to American Cancer Society is recommended (link below). Any guest(s) must register individually.

Registration and donation page are not yet active for 2025. Please check back in early January 2025.

Thank you for supporting Phishapalooza 2025, the American Cancer Society and the cybersecurity community.
