2018 will be the seventh year that GGFEST brings together action sports athletes from all over the world.


This summer on July 27-29 the international street culture and sports festival „Ghetto Games Festival” will take place in Ventspils, Latvia. This is the seventh consecutive year of the festival and it will gather up to a professional action sports athletes from all over the globe.

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 31 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.

We gather the best up-and-comers and living legends of each noted action sport, as well as several thousands of spectators that are there for the amazing experience. GGFEST is a celebration of action sports during which the world's best athletes meet the local talent and fans, whose dream is to become as good at what they do as their idols.

In addition to all the action sports activities, which include skateboarding, wakeboarding, 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, stand up paddle boarding and the „Baltic Open” Street Workout Championship.
