Get in on the big game mania this March with Lowe’s Free Bucket Ball Challenge. On March 11, 2023, customers can come in and compete in a head-to-head match with other customers for a chance to win Lowe’s gift cards and other prizes. This event is completely free and is timed to coincide with another big ball game match-up that also happens to be in March.

Test your skills in a bucket ball bracket while finalizing your other brackets before the sports craziness begins on March 14. Here’s everything we know so far about this free event. And if you can’t get in on the bucket ball game, the Lowe’s March kids’ workshop is slated for Saturday, March 18.

This event is open to anyone 13 years of age or older. So if you want to show your kid how it’s done, you can absolutely register for both of you. You’ll also compete against other customers and a few Lowe’s employees during your event. Preregistration is open now through March 10. Walk-ins are welcome, but there are a limited number of spaces, and the open spots are given on a first-come, first-serve basis.


New brackets begin every hour starting at 10 a.m. local time.

There will be three brackets, with the first one starting at 10 a.m. Be sure to select your preferred time slot when you register. Lowe’s has set a limit of 20 participants per bracket, which is why you should consider preregistering for your local store’s event. Lowe’s asks that you arrive at least 10 minutes prior to your bracket slot and check in with the event coordinator.


Winners of the Lowe’s Free Bucket Ball Challenge receive a $50 Lowe’s gift card.
