Madrid Urban Sports: A great weekend plan for the whole family

-Competitions, music, markets and activities make up the free urban festival that has been set up on the black esplanade of Madrid Río

– The event takes place from 16 to 18 June, with the main event on Sunday with the finals


The City of Madrid is hosting this weekend the Madrid Urban Sports, the extreme competition event that you can’t miss. Skateboards, scooters, BMX and breakdancers from the world’s elite, and no exaggeration, as there is no more and no less than a scooter world cup and qualifying competitions for next year’s Olympic Games in Paris.

In case you still haven’t heard, as well as two huge stages where the competitions never stop, you’ll find a market with all the urban essence, where you can buy clothes, shoes, skates and much more.

Are there activities for children? Of course there are. There are HotWheels circuits to try out their Finguerboards, which is like skateboarding, but in miniature size using your fingers. For those who already have a scooter or skateboard at home, we have a mini ramp and a Wave for them to practice as much as they want. And if you’re still hungry for more, you can enjoy the Urban Art area where artists draw beautiful murals with spray paint every day. The little ones can try their hand at art in the kids’ workshop, and maybe if they try it here, the walls at home will be safe.

If you were looking for a plan for this weekend, here it is, and it’s free. We’ll be waiting for you at the Explanada negra in Madrid Río.
