July 7-9

Levitt at the Falls, The Smithsonian’s Lemelson Center for the Study of Invention and Innovation, and USA Skateboarding are collaborating to create a one-of-a-kind “Innoskate” festival coming to Sioux Falls, July 7-9.

The Innoskate festival brings skateboarding and local communities together in a dynamic exploration of invention, creativity, fun and freedom of expression. Discussions and live concerts featuring the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra ensemble and other national and local artists will examine the deep connections between music, skateboarding, creativity and innovation.

In addition, professional and Olympic skateboarders, inventors, scientists, artists and local community leaders will engage audiences through a variety of demonstrations, conversations and hands-on activities that explore the impact of skateboarding innovations in American culture.

Leading figures will discuss skateboarding technology, issues of diversity and inclusion, skateboarding's role in promoting physical and mental health, and nurturing the growth of the skate community in Sioux Falls.
