Tickets and sponsorships for Guns N Hoses now available!

It’s red vs. blue, police vs. fire: who will take home the gold? Guns N Hoses is Omaha’s most exciting sporting event where police officers and firefighters duke it out in the ring and brawl for it all. This high-energy, entertaining evening awarded Omaha’s “Best Event” by Metro Magazine returns to Baxter Arena on Friday, April 26, 2019 and there will be fun, sweat, and cheers. And by joining in on the fun, you’re a hero to our men and women on the front lines as all proceeds are donated back to support first responder programs and public safety. It’s why thousands flock to the arena every year, and it’s why the fighters fight!
