8th Annual Central Mass Skate Festival – August 4-6, 2017

In its 7th year, Central Mass Skate Festival furthered its role as one of the world’s largest closed-road skate and longboard events. Roughly 400 competitors from 27 US states, 4 Canadian provinces and countries around the world flocked to beautiful Harvard, MA for the downhill race, slide jam, street course and mini ramp jam. Organizer Emgee Events LLC will continue striving to perfect the popular 3-day, 3+ discipline format in 2017.

In addition to a huge downhill race, big air contest, expanded street course, excellent mini ramp and a steep, ramp- and rail-filled slide jam, there are swank hotel accommodations and shuttles, DJing, BBQing, live announcing and a big after-party. The first 150 registrants also receive free premium event t-shirts, and other merch is available for sale.

With riders of all ages, skill levels, genders and disciplines, plus affordable entry fees, free spectating and tight organization by over 30 event staff, Central Mass 8 promises an exciting time for all attendees. Get registered!
