Whistler Longboard Festival
July 1 - July 3
Produced by Unkle Events, Whistler Longboard Festival is back on Canada Day July 1-3. Now in it’s 6th year the Festival is held at a 2010 Olympic facility and attracts the top downhill skateboarders from around the globe. Spectators are welcome to come and line the course and cheer on the racers.
This year’s Festival will kick off with a Freeride and a fun “No Hands” Race on Friday July 1 (leathers and IDF membership optional). 1-day freeride entries and volunteer sign-up will be available on www.longboardfestival.com, don’t miss your chance. Don’t forget to ride the Brand NEW SKATEPARK for a shred before hitting the village to get loose.
Following the 1-day Freeride is our main event; the 2-Day World Cup Downhill Race. Racers from 20 countries will compete in Junior, Master, Luge, Women and Open categories at Saturday’s timed qualifications and Sunday’s race day. The Festival isn’t complete without a lot of celebration and a bumpin’ after-party held in the village.
