The Ghetto Games festival (or simply GGFEST) is a youth culture and action sports festival that annually brings together the world’s most notable action sports athletes to the hospitable city of Ventspils. This year we will bring together 1500 participants in different 17 sports from 25 countries. An especially impressive show can be expected at the BMX Freestyle and Inline skating competitions. Nearly a hundred of modern day top extreme athletes will compete. Europe’s best will be joined by athletes by guests from USA, Australia and Canada.

In addition to all the action sports activities, which include skateboarding, BMX freestyle, inline skating, streetbike freestyle, there will be tournaments in a bit less extreme but equally exciting sports – international tournaments of street basketball, street floorball, street football along with competitions of street dance, armwrestling, powerlifting and the „Baltic Open” Street Workout Championship.

To top it all off – there is no entrance fee for the festival visitors!
