Whew!! Time sure does fly when you’re having fun is an understatement. 2024 will be the 4th consecutive year that Hard Times Skate Shop, Portsmouth’s Park and Recreation Department and sponsors host Hard Times Go Skate Daze. The last 3 Years were nothing short of spectacular and 2024 won’t be any different.

Hard Times GO Skate Daze is a free 2 Day event that celebrates Juneteenth, skateboarding community, and family fun. The festivities will take place on June 19 &
21 at Cradock Skate Park and will be located at 4117 George Washington Highway.

June 19 –  4th Annual Juneteenth Jam.

The last 3 years this event has been very successful. Over the course of time, we have been able to create more awareness about the event and increase the public’s interest and participation in the Hampton Roads area. Last year’s Go Skate Daze event was featured in The New York Times.  THis year includes DJ on the 1s and 2s, skateboard contest, food trucks, vendors, prizes and giveaways, and much more.  11 AM – 5 PM.

On June 21 – Go Skate Daze

Kick off activities for the globally celebrated Go Skate Day holiday.Hard Times Go Skate Daze is becoming the way we start the summer in Portsmouth. Every year we try to add something different to the event for the community. In 2021 skateboard legend Clyde Singleton hosted the inaugural Juneteenth Jam. 2022 we celebrated our 10-year anniversary with a carnival themed party. Last year we wanted to focus more on giving back to our community. We were able to achieve this goal with the help of our sponsors by donating several complete skateboards to the local youth who had an interest in skateboarding but lacked the proper equipment. This year’s
event will be just as memorable. We have a few tricks up our sleeves.

This year, enjoy free skateboard lessons, an open skate, giveaways, food, and give back with a park clean up.
