Skate or Die Biography:
Skate Or Die Fest is a single day, all-ages skateboarding + music + culture festival. The ultimate experience for the angsty teenager in all of us, combining the excitement of skateboarding, with its deep connection to music, art, and culture.
Programming includes live music on two stages, skate competitions, pro skate demos, a puppy petting zoo, and live art installations, along with plenty of angst and nostalgia.
Exciting Action Sports
A high-energy skate competition, featuring 200 skaters competing in three events for $3,000 in prize money.
The world’s largest Game of S.K.A.T.E. Competition (A World Record Attempt), plus a Best Trick and Highest Ollie contest.
All skaters who wish to compete must purchase the Skate Tournament Entry Fee ticket ($30.00), which covers your entry fee to the contests as well as GA entry into the festival.
WORLD’S LARGEST GAME OF S.K.A.T.E. TOURNAMENT
A single-elimination bracket tournament with 200 skaters competing through 10 action-packed rounds to be crowned the top champion and take home the top prize!
BEST TRICK CONTEST
The top 16 skaters from the S.K.A.T.E. Tournament earn a spot in our Best Trick Contest, down a sweet stair and rail set, where they compete to earn even more money.
HIGHEST OLLIE CONTEST
Throughout the day, any of the competing skaters can qualify for the highest ollie contest, which will be held prior to the Best Trick.
$3,000 CASH PURSE AND PRIZES
$3,000 of cold hard cash is up for grabs, as well as prizes from skate brands and sponsors.
Eat delicious food. Chill with cute adoptable puppies. Get tangled up in an art installation. Watch a muralist paint a masterpiece. Make your own masterpiece. Explore the vendor village. Take the perfect selfie. Dunk a politician. Be angsty.
Come let loose with friends, make memories, get nostalgic as hell, and bask in the good vibes.
Cherish the amazing fall weather. Historically it’s between 75º and 60º F on this date (and thank goodness because we hate music festivals where you sweat through your shirt, like yuck dude.)
ARTIST UPRISING VENDOR VILLAGE
Enjoy a great selection of local artisans, curated by Artist Uprising.
PUPPY PETTING ZOO
Take a break from the music and hang out with some of the sweetest lil puppies you have ever seen. They are all adoptable too, so you could (and should) take home your new best friend. Good boy.
DUNK A POLITICIAN. FOR CHARITY.
Let out your frustration at the current political climate by throwing some balls at our Politician Dunk Tank. A donation to charity gets you a chance to dunk Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Ted Cruz, or perhaps even one of our local politicians.
