It's Offical, Tony Hawk Will Be Skateboarding In Montreal This Summer

Festivals, festivals! So many festivals! 

Montreal hosts a skateboarding festival in the summer, and last year to celebrate our brand spanking new skateboarding grounds - the man, the myth, the legend himself, Tony Hawk, was on hand for our summer festival.

Jackalope Festival is returning to Montreal this August, and once again, Tony Hawk will be making his way to Montreal and showing off his skills for the crowds. He just can't stay away from us! 

Tony Hawk is the leading celebrity name on this year's lineup - but Jackalope Festival has much more in store for 2018, too. 

For the first time, BMX champion Mat Hoffman will also be on the Jackalope grounds in 2018, and both celebrity athletes will be doing a demonstration for the crowds. 

Jackalope 2018 in  Montreal will also see the World Cup Skateboardingcompetition for men and women, as well as a Skateboarding competition for athletes under 13. 

Additionally, there will be slacklining, some great after parties and amazing Montreal food trucks and pop-up shops to get your spending on! 

All things considered, Jackalope Skateboarding festival/competition is a much-needed pallet cleanser from the standard Montreal festivals. It's a full weekend of jam-packed shredding and displays of mental boarding skills. 

For me, my skateboarding knowledge is somewhat limited. I've never been good with my balance on a board, so when I get to watch the pros do it, my mind is blown! 

What? Jackalope 2018

When? August 16 to August 19, 2018

Where? Montreal's Olympic Park

How much? $25 - $300

Weekend passes are just $25, there is also family weekend passes available for $80, and a VIP experience that will run you $200 which gives you meet and greet options with Tony Hawk and Mat Hoffman along with a bunch of other perks. 

You can find more information on the festival and ticket prices right here, and follow the official event page on Facebook right here.
