Update COVID-19

April 16, 2020 / By cecilia

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the measures and restrictions issued by the Government of Quebec prohibiting the holding of events until August 31, 2020, it is with a heavy but hopeful heart that we announce the postponement of JACKALOPE Montreal 2020 until next year. The health and safety of participants, athletes, employees, volunteers and partners is our priority. It is essential to respect the guidelines issued by the Government if we want to find ourselves all together as quickly as possible! JACKALOPE Atlantic will take place May 21-23, 2021, as previously announced. JACKALOPE Montreal will be postponed to 2021, but the date remains to be confirmed.

We’re here for you

The team continues to brainstorm while monitoring the situation. We are already working (from home) to offer you other experiences more suited to the current pandemic situation. “For 10 years, we have worked tirelessly to demystify action sports through, among other things, the practice of skateboarding. We know how to pump up adrenaline! We are currently deploying our energy to make JACKALOPE live differently. It is clear that the community is more connected than ever, it forms connections differently thanks to social platforms. We are therefore moving in that direction. We will not wait until next year to continue sharing our passion and entertaining the community, said Micah Desforges, President and Founder of Tribu Expérientiel, Promoter of JACKALOPE. Regarding the entry of skateboarding and climbing into the Olympic Games, we will not fail to emphasize it in our own way and to showcase our own talents from here as we have done since our very beginnings. “ Special thanks to the whole community for your support. It is important to remain united in times like these. Hoping that your loved ones are doing well, we look forward to meeting you in 2021 in a more stable and safer environment, to offer you well-deserved entertainment weekends! We would also like to thank all of our partners for their support and collaboration.

To Ticket Holders

We invite all those who purchased tickets to keep them for future events, as the tickets purchased (festival-goers and competitors) will be valid for the new dates. For JACKALOPE Atlantic, those who will not be able to attend have already received an email from Ticketpro with instructions. For JACKALOPE Montreal, ticket holders will be notified by email with more specific information as soon as the new date of the event is known. Please wait until we contact you directly to receive information and instructions in order to facilitate the process.  

Stay tuned !

Never has it been more important to come together and the next editions will be even more magical. In 2021, we will be highlighting the entry of skateboarding and climbing into the Olympic Games, an inaugural year for JACKALOPE Atlantic and a 10th edition for JACKALOPE Montreal! Until then, take care of yourself and others and keep an eye on us so you don’t miss anything. #savethesummer ??
