Canada’s largest action sports festival is coming to the U.S. for the first time from June 2 to 4, 2023 in Virginia Beach. During these 3 days, JACKALOPE will bring together some of the best international athletes in skateboarding, bouldering, base jumping and skimboarding.

JACKALOPE is diversifying with a new decor and new experiences always more sensational. We explain it all just below!

With this operation, JACKALOPE by TRIBU becomes the only event of its kind to operate on both sides of the border.




Skateboarding :

For this U.S edition, JACKALOPE will host its legendary street competition, men, women, youth, recognized by the Skateboarding World Cup.

JACKALOPE will be the occasion to admire Tony Hawk during a show on the evening of June 3rd in the gigantic 13 feet high vert. He will be accompanied by his legendary friends, Reese Nelson, Collin Graham, Elliot Sloan, Mitchie Brusco…

Furthermore, JACKALOPE will allow all skate fans to live one of their dreams, to skate on the same skatepark as these great athletes, during an open session with a pass that you can get here.

Bouldering :

JACKALOPE will allow you to come and admire internationally renowned climbers, and the difficulty of this discipline on the boulder set up along the Virginia Beach. You will have the chance to try bouldering with the purchase of the “citizen” pass.

JACKALOPE wants to mark the occasion by proposing the lowest Base Jump jumps ever done in JACKALOPE.
