Jackalope Atlantic 2020

JACKALOPE is coming to the Maritimes! The festival will take place from May 15th to 17th at the Rath Eastlink Community Centre in Truro, Nova Scotia! We are proud to be organizing the Jackalope climbing competition which will include both citizen and elite categories. 

JACKALOPE is the largest action sports event in Canada that brings together fans of skateboarding, climbing, BMX and slacklining. This year, there is added excitement as skateboarding, BMX, and climbing make their debut in the Tokyo 2020 Summer Olympics and Jackalope 2020 hopes to promote these action sports in grand fashion. 

The bouldering competition will bring together some of the top climbers in Canada to compete for a $2,000 divided cash prize.
