20th Annual Texas Skate Jam for Make-A-Wish
Saturday, November 5, 2016; ends at 6:00 PM (CDT)
So far, we've raised over $885,000 in the 19 years, through this event.
This year’s event will host a plethora of tent displays from many of today’s fan favorite skateboard and lifestyle brands who will be exhibiting and promoting the latest in skate footwear, apparel, and cutting edge hard goods including; Curb Slayer, DC Shoes, Diamond Supply Co., Hercules Thrustmaster, Real Skateboards, Spitfire Wheels, Thunder Trucks, Skatetrash, New Balance Numeric, Nike SB, and Vans.
It's a one of a kind event and your ticket is basically like a "all access-backstage pass!"
You hang out with the pros in the park and stand right next to the action.
Autographs are the norm and spectators in line usually receive a FREE thank you gift bag with over $40 in product from this year’s event sponsors.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
Yes & No...you will need to if you don't have a smart phone with the email or the Eventbrite App. to check in.
You must have access to the 3D barcode so we can scan your ticket.
The name on the ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?
We don't mind who purchased the ticket. Just as long as you show up with the ticket.
Once it's scanned it's cleared out in our system and can not be reused by another ticket holder, so don't lose it!
Are the pros listed guaranteed to appear?
No there are no guarantees on who will show. Flights get canceled, skaters have injuries or last minute schedule conflicts come about.
Will I get a goodie bag?
Also not guaranteed. 2015 the first 300 got some free stuff at the door. This all depends on the event sponsors and what they provide.
