That was rad – let’s do it again in 2020!

Welcome, skaters and fans to the largest regional, all-ages skate competition happening in Seattle, on JULY 11th, 2020!

Festi-Bowl VI is an all-ages, all-abilities skateboard event that occurs during the Ballard SeafoodFest.  The event is presented by VISITBALLARD.COM and hosted by Skate Like a Girl .

There are several elements to the competition at varying skill levels:

  • Clinics and lessons provided by Skate Like a Girl
  • Sidewalk Slalom event
  • 12-and-under bowl Jam
  • Ladies division
  • Open Contest


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.
