The second annual Venice Beach Surf & Skate Fest will be held on Saturday, April 13th at the Venice Farmer’s Market lot at 2150 Dell.
The Surf & Skate Fest (VBSSF) will feature live music, food from local restaurants, vendors, a charity raffle, historic exhibits and modern displays. Sponsor Stone Brewing will host a microbrew beer garden.
VBSSF promoter Brady Walker is looking toward the community at large for creative input to help sculpt the event: “The VBSSF could not be possible without the incredible love and support of our local community. This event is about and for Venice. I want to hear from those who are passionate about our town and our surfing & skating legacy. With your help we can make this event grow into a world-class event, while keeping it focused and relevant to who we are and what we do on a daily basis in our little slice of paradise.”
Local non-profits such as the Venice Family Clinic and the Free Venice Beachhead will be represented at the event, with the charity beneficiary for this year’s event being Sea Shepherd, protectors of the ocean and activists of marine wildlife conservation.
Want to get involved as a sponsor or event staff? They are looking for surf and skate themed musical acts, vendors, historians, stars and athletes to add to the day’s festivities. Contact Brady for more information!
