June 21 - Go Skateboarding Day

Posted on June 21, 2020

This annual holiday was created by the International Association of Skateboard Companies to promote their sport. 

Some years there are events in which dozens or even hundreds of skateboarders take over the streets of towns all over the world.

But this is not "some year"! I would expect that most places would frown upon a just-for-fun mass event because of the COVID-19 pandemic. 

On the other hand, youths tend to follow social distancing rules less well than older people do - AND they tend to fare better with the virus - so it's possible that skateboarders will still celebrate this year. Also, with all the people taking to streets to protest police brutality, I expect to see some "More Skate, Less Hate" skateboarders at protests and marches.


Also on this date:

La Fête de la Musique in France
