Since 2011 the Snowboard Garden Festival has been marking the start of the season in the heart of the French Alps, bringing people together from all four corners of the snowboard world before winter officially kicks in. The sixth incarnation of Snowboard Garden Festival takes place on October 13th to 15th in the Palais des Sports, Grenoble.
The hundred people volunteer team is doing its best to bring as much people as possible into snowboarding culture. There will be movies, concerts, skateboarding, art shows, brands and resorts presenting the last products.. In 2016, we expect to reach 25.000 visitors over the 3 days.
The festival remain really affordable. Indeed people can give what they like to support the festival until 8pm and when arriving after 8pm. The association is doing its best to keep this door policy.
International Film Festival
In 2016, the Film Festival gathers around 25 projects from all around the world. From local crews to major productions, this year selection is a must see. More than 70 riders and producers are making the trip to the Garden to share their love of snowboarding with everyone. Victor Daviet will welcome all the crews on stage to introduce the different movies.
