Registration Now Open

Registration for Cambridge SkateFest 2016 is now open!  Event T-shirts are optional this year, so if you’d like to order one, please register by Friday, September 2nd, 2016. (T-shirt availability & sizing on the day of the event isn’t guaranteed.)

Save the date for Cambridge SkateFest 2016!

Cambridge SkateFest 2016 will be on Sunday, September 18th, 2016! (Rain date: Sept. 25th)

For 2016, both Slalom and Freeride contests will be right on Memorial Drive so it should be a great chance for more people to see a mix of freestyle skating! (We’ll setup a “street” course for the Slalom Battle.)

We had a blast during our Freeride contest this past Sunday. Congratulations to Eric Torres, who placed 1st, among a tight field of phenomenal skaters! (More results and photos on our gallery page.  We’ll post a highlights video of both Freeride and Slalom contests in a few weeks.)

Huge thanks to all our competitors, our sponsors Thuro and Rollerblade, and everyone who helped, supported, and came out to watch.

Video from Thuro — Freeride Tomorrow!

Thuro, our sponsor, made a short clip to remind everyone to come out for the Freeride contest tomorrow! (Sunday, Oct 11th.) The weather will be awesome, and we have some fun box configuration planned for the final round so it will be a blast! Come out to compete or watch, then afterwards, stroll over to Harvard Sq. to enjoy the Oktoberfest-ivities…
