Jackalope Announces Weekend Event Line-Up

Virginia Beach Convention & Visitors Bureau today announced the official schedule of events taking place during the all-new action sports event, JACKALOPE, June 2-4, 2023, which is free and open to the public. All activities are held around Neptune's Park and the beach at 31st Street.

What to Expect

  • BOULDERING: Experience a deeper dive into the discipline, a high-level competition, and a powerful and unique beach event. Don't miss the DYNO competition, an event where athletes jump from one hold to another.
  • BASE JUMP: BASE jump is a parachute jump from a fixed location. BASE is an acronym for Buildings, Antennas, Spans (bridges), and Earth (cliffs). Be there for the first base jump from the Hilton Oceanfront rooftop every evening if the winds permit.
  • SKIMBOARD: Skimboarding is a water sport derived from surfing that involves gliding on shallow water using a board. JACKALOPE offers the public the opportunity to take part in a skimboarding competition. These competitions will also be a chance to see promising young athletes like Sydney Pizza and Colton Ettwein.
  • MOTOCROSS: JACKALOPE is about to experience a new wave of excitement with performances by Zach DiPaolo. This young rider from Virginia Beach has quickly gained a reputation in the world of extreme sports thanks to his innovative style and ability to perform high-level tricks at FMX events worldwide.
  • BEACH VOLLEYBALL: The Mid-Atlantic Championship will take place at the JACKALOPE Festival at Virginia Beach.

Media is invited to attend this historic event and will have the opportunity to meet the producer and athletes. Since the site is open to the public, the media can explore it freely without accreditation.
