Newport Skate Park Vermont

NEWPORT — The Newport Skate Park project has certainly exceeded expectations. It’s become a safe place where people can go to interact with others in the community, build new friendships, and be outside while staying active. It’s a place for everyone.

After 2 years of planning, demolishing, constructing, and using the park, organizers are now ready to introduce their first annual event, Newport Shred Fest.

This is a one night event dedicated to music, friends, family, and all those supporting or involved with the skateboard and snowboard culture, as well as many other outdoor recreational activities.

Newport Shred Fest will kick off August 8, at 4 p.m., with live music, vendors, food, and a skate contest hosted by Gnarbear. See poster below for full lineup.

Bring your boards, everyone you know, cameras, or just a lawn chair to kick back and watch all the local talent.
