For the first time since the Stardust rink closed in 1983, roller skating is back in North Vancouver! Rolla Skate Club is proud to present the inaugural 2020 Vancouver Rollerskate Festival at The Shipyards on Saturday April 4th from 10am to 10pm. All kinds of roller skating will be celebrated with lessons, an all-ages open skate session, roller derby bout, and an adults-only Neon Nights skate party to close out the event. Wooohooo!
“Roller skating is making a huge comeback, with more options than ever to have fun, get fit, and meet new skate friends,” says event organizer Carla Smith. “We want to celebrate by connecting the skate community from around British Columbia and Washington to learn, grow, and roll together.”Carla Smith event organizer for Vancouver Rollerskate Festival
A morning of roller skate workshops will kick off the festivities, with options for beginners to experts, ages 6 to 86. Beginner skaters can take a free lesson to get started and experienced skaters can upgrade their skills at workshops with world-class instructors. Everyone can practice their moves at the all-ages open skate session in the afternoon or later on at the adults-only Neon Dreams Roller Rink party.
*Pre-registration is recommended for most of these events
Rolla Skate Club’s Roller Derby Boot Camp program is also presenting a public roller derby bout. Sports fans will not want to miss the fast and furious Black vs. Blue showdown, which is free to watch and will be tons of fun for the whole family.
This event ushers in the spring roller skating season at The Shipyards – Rolla Skate Club will be there every Sunday this spring starting March 29th, for community skating from 2-5pm, with free admission and $10 skate rentals ($8 for kids).
