7th Annual Vancouver Youth Week Skateboard Event
The Vancouver Skateboard Coalition (VSBC), in co-operation with the City of Vancouver and the Thunderbird and Roundhouse Community Centres, would like to invite you to the seventh annual Vancouver Youth Week Skate Event, a free, non-competitive event which will take place, rain or shine, on Saturday, May 4th from 1:00 until 4:00pm at The Skateboard Plaza (under the Georgia Viaduct at the intersection of Union St. and Quebec St.).
As one of the most popular elements of Vancouver Youth Week since 2007, the Skate Event is a family-friendly celebration of skateboarding and skateboard culture that is geared towards the younger age demographic of Vancouver’s skateboard scene. Featuring prize giveaways, skate demos by Underworld Skateshop and Supra Shoes, music by DJs AC and Randal D, a Tacofino food cart, and information booths from a number of youth-oriented organizations, this year’s event will be another fun, exciting, and interactive day for everyone involved.
