Red Bull truck rail jam
Skateable Sculpture Jam (made possible by Assemble & Folkestone Triennial)
@blokes_official takeover jam
Skate Boot Fair (buy new and secondhand bits ‘n’ bobs from other skaters)
Tours of F51 (Must book in advance - link coming soon)
Cash for tricks
Loads of prizes (thanks to all the supporting shops & brands)
Big screen after-party (running 8 pm until 11 pm)
Last year we gave you a car, this year we’re giving you two boats.
Red Bull have been kind enough to lend us their skateable truck. This thing is not to be underestimated - high, gnarly rail lovers, this ones for you.
As well as a ‘skate boot fair’ (running in the afternoon/early evening), expect to see a lively takeover jam from the hooligans at @blokes_official. We’ve got a bunch of new skateable sculptures on the Arm, recently installed by the Folkestone Triennial, that we can’t wait to show you.
We’ll be moving into Goods Yard at 8pm for an afterparty accompanied with big screen skate vids, music and all round celebration until 11pm, all in the name of fun and skateboarding.
Make sure you’re following us on social media to keep up to date with any developments or updates. We’ll be sharing a rough schedule for the day a few days prior.
As with any of our events, we rely on our volunteers to make it a success. Please message @skatefolkestone if you’re interested in lending a hand or taking on a role on the day.
