USA Memory Championship Summary

Event Overview: Watch as some of the sharpest memories in the world battle wits at the USA Memory Championship in NYC. Performing unbelievable acts of memory during this one-day NYC event, the USA Memory Championship is unlike anything you've seen before.

What to Expect: Prepare to be amazed. The Memory Championships USA ask a lot from their contestants in a series of memory competitions, including . . .

  • 200 Number Recall: In this event, Memory Championship USA Contestants are asked to look at a list of over 200 numbers in 25 different rows for five minutes. Then, they're given ten minutes to recall all 200 numbers. Yikes.
  • Reciting a 50-Line Poem: Contestants are given an unpublished poem at the NY Memory Championship USA, and after 15 minutes, asked to recite the entire thing.
  • Memorizing a Deck of Cards: 2009 USA Memory Championships Winner Ronnie White was able to memorize a full deck of cards in less than 1 minute 30 seconds.

Inside Knowledge: The Memory Championship USA are free for the public to attend. However, we recommend attending only the second half of the competition, in which the final eight contestants compete on the stage at the NYC Memory Championships Stage.

Tap into your inner geek and head to the Memory Championship in New York.  At this annual event, you'll witness some fierce competition.  With events that involve having to remember lists of words and facts about random strangers, you'll be thoroughly impressed by all of the competitors.

Conveniently located in the Flatiron neighborhood of Manhattan, the Memory Championship is a great place to bring the entire family.  Whether you just stop by for part of an event or you stay for the entire tournament, you will have an enjoyable time.

Amazing to Watch - USA Memory Championship

The USA Memory Championship can be a lot of fun.  You'll see people competing in events that seem pretty impossible to most people.  You may even get an urge to give the challenges a try yourself.  Since there are so many people in the earlier rounds, it will likely be more entertaining if you wait until the later rounds to go.  It's pretty neat that you'll likely be able to see some world records being set at this free competition.
