(English) Jackalope, action sports just a few minutes from the hotel


From August 18 to 20, 2017, the Olympic Park will welcome nearly 20,000 festival-goers and 200 athletes for the 6th edition of the Jackalope Action Sports Festival.

This event taking place on the Sun Life Esplanade is Canada’s largest extreme sports event.

Come and experience an adrenalin-filled weekend in Montreal just minutes away from Royal Versailles Hotel.

Jackalope’s Competitions

The Jackalope event presented by the Action Sports Association and Tribu Expérientiel aims to promote action sports, inspire creativity and performance or simply motivate people to stay active.

That’s why the Olympic Park is the perfect place for the event to take place.

Although the full program has not yet been announced for this summer, it is still possible to confirm which activities will be back this year.

First of all, the competitions will still be the main attraction.

The skateboarding competition is sanctioned by the world cup skateboarding. Come and measure your skills. Many skateboarding guests are already confirmed, including two winners of the 2016 edition, Greg Lutzka of the United States and Benjamin Garcia of France.

In addition, the impressive JUMP OFF Jumping Base Competition will be held again from the top of the Olympic Stadium Tower! The fall of 165 meters is extremely fast and requires a lot of precision because the athletes must reach a specific point on the ground. Come and admire the courage and dexterity of the athletes who will launch from the top of the tower with only a parachute.

You can also attend the climbing competition or the fixed gear bicycle competition.

Jackalope’s Programmation

If you also want to participate in some of the activities, you just need to buy a ticket and get to the Olympic Park.

There will be lots of initiation activities to skateboarding, base jumping, climbing and slackline. You can also discover Unda yoga, a new style of yoga on board, or contemplate the talents of motocross drivers doing freestyle.

The fun will continue with a great water rifle battle, bubble soccer and a memorable after party.

The Pop up Shops section will host several original streetwear companies. Enhance your look at the barbershop or shop unique clothes.

The Olympic Park will be filled with food trucks just so you can eat on site.

Guests can access the Jackalope Festival activities for $ 10 on Friday or $ 15 on Saturday or Sunday.

If you want action, it’s the best time to enjoy it and let yourself be impressed by the talent of these extreme sports athletes.
