Ninetimes is throwing a huge party at the old Cowboys tent this weekend
Looking for something to do this weekend? Well fortunately for you, Ninetimes will be setting up a skateboard park at the former Cowboys tent (now called the Big Big Tent). With activities going on throughout the weekend, all kinds of skaters will get a chance to have some fun.
Friday will be the big dog day, since they’re hosting a Skate Jam and BBQ all night long. Think you have what it takes? Throw your hat in the ring and try to win some prizes and prestige. Otherwise, enjoy a hot dog as you watch some of Calgary’s best skaters mess around.
Saturday is for the girls, with a female skate jam (16+) going down mid-day. We like the recent explosion of female skaters in the scene, and we’re happy that Ninetimes is out here supporting them too.
Things wind down on Sunday with an Introduction to Skateboarding put on by the Academy Skateboard Collective. Bummed that you never got into the coolest sport in the world? Ready to figure out how to do more than ollie while at a standstill? They’ve got you covered.
So, for those of you who want to get up to something a little different this weekend, head to the Big Big Tent for some fun.
When: All weekend long
Where: 321 11th Avenue SE
