“The Rodeo” is South Florida’s premiere skateboarding event. We are certain that this year will be the biggest and best to date. We anticipate having 100+ skaters participate in the event with several hundred spectators and families throughout the day. Competitors will be traveling from as far away as Jacksonville and Key West to battle for $3,000 in cash, prizes and sponsorships.

The purpose of the Skateboard Rodeo is to help raise funds and educate our community on new and unique local 501c3 non-profit organizations within the Dade County area.
This year we will be teaming up with Amigo Skate Charity which is a local non-profit based in Miami Florida.In the past they have worked locally to help provide at risk youth with skateboard equipment, positive role models and summer skate field trips. The have also hosted food collections for the homeless, free skate instruction clinics and Christmas toy drives. Amigo Skate Charity travels to Havana Cuba twice a year to provide underprivileged children on the island with free skateboards, art supplies and music equipment. They have hosted skate contests, action sports tours and underground music events in Havana. They return to Cuba in mid-October with a group of skaters from across the globe with the purpose of bringing more skateboarding equipment and a message of international unity, hope and love…

Exciting new features have been added to this year’s roster and we have brought back some past Rodeo favorites to ensure a great time with our usual bone crushing mayhem fun! There will be plenty of free entertainment for the entire family with an interactive street art show, bounce house, live music, face painting and dodge ball! This years we have amped up the music with two live music stages. The "Main Stage’ is hosted by Armory Studios and Idle Hands Productions; with bands playing live music ranging from Surf, punk, rockabilly, thrash, ska and rock. The "Second Stage" will be hosted by Power 96, Sekajipo Genes and Catalyst; with the best in djs, electronica and live hip hop and street art. We are proud to announce that 305 Green will be hosting the “Punk Rock Flea Market” this year with a funky mix of original and eclectic finds, organic and locally made products, vegan and vegetarian food options, live interactive artists, skate shops, product expo and plenty of fun from some of the best independently run businesses in and around Miami.
Get ready for insanity! Miami Street League will be hosting what we hope will be the biggest game of Dodgeball in our Countys history. The game will be followed by a dodgeball tournament so bring your skills.
Alex Yanes will host the Pop Up Gallery with some of Miamis hottest up and coming artists painting live.

Dade County Animal Services is also coming out to host their adoption event with plenty ofcute kitty’s and puppy’s for everyone to take one home!

The skate contest portion of the event will be comprised of six different style contests; a game of skate, highest ollie, blindfolded kick flips, ledge/box contest, barrel jumping and a stair/hubba contest. Contestents will be split up into four divisions; Beginner, Intermediate 12 and under, intermediate 13 and up and Advanced. We will be adding more ramps to give the park a different feel and we have organized the contests in a way that will keep open skating in the park throughout the day ensuring a good time for everyone whether they will be competing or not.
Chris Casey will return this year to be the official contest announcer. He is best known as the cohost of Fuel TVs Captain and Casey show and has also hosted for Maloof Money Cup and Transworld Skateboarding.
