Welcome, skaters and fans to the largest regional, all-ages skate competition happening in Seattle this year! JULY 14th, 2018


Festi-Bowl is an all-ages, all-abilities skateboard event that occurs during the Ballard SeafoodFest.  The event is hosted by Skate Like a Girl and contains several elements.

The event showcases organized skateboarding in a positive environment and the unique attributes of the sport.

Festi-Bowl is the kick-off to a series of summer events which promote organized youth skateboarding at the Ballard Commons Park. We will continue to raise the interest in skateboarding within our Ballard community and provide an opportunity for children to participate in an exciting sport that requires unique strengths, skills and courage. The event will be followed by several weeks of skateboarding workshops aimed at children 12 and under, to be held at the Ballard Commons Park. Certified instructors will be available and parents are encouraged to participate.
