Festival Info

Madskillz Festival X

August 16 & 17, 2019

We are celebrating our 10th anniversary festival at the Roundhouse community centre in downtown Vancouver. As this is a special milestone, we are bringing the festival to a centralized location with the intention of exposing more Vancouverites to the joy of Madskillz!

This year we are also teaming up with Terra Kendama’s event, VanJam, an annual kendama contest in it’s 6th year this year. Their focus is on fun and the goal is to bring players from all across the world together in a relaxed environment.

Madskillz has always been a non-profit organization, and this event is produced by the community, for the community. Madskillz attendees will be asked to purchase tickets (including organizing crew members, instructors, and event volunteers) in order to financially support our yearly get together!
