A feast for fans of robots and gaming, Norwalk Havoc Robot League's all-day robot combat events feature exciting attractions for fans of all ages.
Our 2022 season features seven events. The first two on March 26 and April were a huge success, getting bigger each time, you can see all the action from those events on our YouTube channel https://www.youtube.com/NorwalkHavoc
The remaining events are:
- May 14 - New Bots only
- July 16 & 17 - Two day festival
- Sept 17

- Dec 17 - 2022 Season Championship Finals
Spectators get a chance to witness over 100 robots fight in our 300-seat arena, as well as witness fights up-close-and-personal at our brand-new walk-up cage. Fans will also have the chance to test-drive our house bot (a huge hit for kids and grown-ups alike!), make signs to cheer on their favorite bots, browse our merch stand and local vendor booths, and more.
We have craft beer, wine and food trucks to relax between battles.
Not familiar with robot combat? You will be! Here's a video of what you can expect. This is an action-packed event perfect for families and adults - fights happen nearly constantly throughout the day, and only get better as we get deeper into the brackets. STEM enthusiasts will be inspired seeing bots built and driven by kids just like them, and combat robotics fans will see experienced builders who they may have seen on TV.
Early-round fights start at 10am, and the competition will run continuously throughout the day. The most intense fights of the day, including big-bot fights, will begin around 2pm and run through 10pm (or to close).
