JACKALOPE Action Sports Festival

JACKALOPE is the largest action sports event in Canada and brings together many lesser-known urban sports, including skateboard, base jump, fixed gear, slackline and more. One of the objectives is to make action sports more accessible to the young and the young at heart!

August 18 to 20 at the Esplanade Financière Sun Life in Montréal’s Olympic Park.

The JACKALOPE action sports festival will bring together none other than Tony Hawk, one of the best skateboarders of all time, and Pierre-Luc Gagnon (PLG), one of the most celebrated Québec athletes of all disciplines. Tony Hawk and Friends featuring PLG, with Evan Doherty, Lizzie Armanto, Kevin Staab and Elliot Sloan, promises a one-of- kind performance on the vertical ramp at the Esplanade Financière Sun Life in the Olympic Park for devoted fans and adrenaline junkies.

“I’m excited to join the Jackalope festival and perform for the fans there. It’s been too long since my last visit to Montréal, and I can’t wait to ride with our stellar line-up of skaters,” said Tony Hawk.

“I’m extremely happy to come back to Montréal to skate a vert event and perform in my hometown! See u guys in August!” said PLG.

In 2016, JACKALOPE made history by hosting the very first base jump from the top of the Olympic Tower, the tallest inclined tower in the world. On the heels of this epic success, the production team is amping it up by taking the concept even further…

In cities, climbing continues to attract a bigger and bigger fan base. JACKALOPE is the event if you want to see how the pros do it and try it out yourself.

Installations custom-made to deliver summer fun, DJs heating up the ambiance, not to mention food trucks, pop-up shops, after parties and more. In between competitions, the public is invited to come and try skateboarding, slacklining and freestyle motocross demonstrations. And why not kick it up with a water gun fight (it’s going to be hot!) or get your zen on with an outdoor yoga session in the midst of this great big JACKALOPE playground?
