Finally, Vancouver is going to host the iconic House of Vans for the first time ever. The 4-day long event starts on Thursday, and will feature a variety of events, concerts and contests. The best part? Everything, and we mean everything, is free!!

(Camera zooms in on the skatepark) Let’s check it out!

Skate Market

Taking place at the Harbour Event Centre, the skate market is open every day that House of Vans is on. Swing by and pick up some sweet merch, hopefully from a local brand like Antisocial.

Open Skate

Another thing open everyday. This indoor skatepark will feature a bunch of obstacles created by various skate companies like Alltimers and Skull Skates.

Crack Gallery presents ROCK SOLID

One of the coolest pop up art galleries gets the nod on bringing the best of the underground to Vancouver for over 5 years. This one only happens on Thursday, though, so get down there and check it out.

Best Trick Contest

An open invite contest looking for the best that Vancouver has to offer. While we expect a pro to win, maybe a local will come out of the woodwork and shut the whole thing down. This one goes down on Friday.

Girls Skate Clinics

Both Saturday and Sunday will have free skate clinics for any girls or women that want to learn a little bit extra or support those just getting into it.

And that’s not even all that’s going down this weekend! Seriously, House of Vans is a big deal, and you’ll regret not going if you’re even a little bit into skateboarding. Trust us on this one.

You can check out the full schedule on the House of Vans website.
