SESSIONS: Music Showcases, Free Skate, Live Murals

House of Vans marquee series, SESSIONS, returns this winter featuring open skate, emerging musician showcases, and live art by Ian FergusonSaskia WarinerMatt Borgia, and Rob Corradetti. This year will mark the final winter skate nights for House of Vans Brooklyn, which originally inspired the SESSIONS series to kick off last year. To commemorate the beloved House of Vans location in Brooklyn, a new skate obstacle will be introduced during the open skate/best trick contest each week, inspired by Vans pro skate team rider Chima Ferguson and the iconic skate spots he’s landed on throughout his career.

The events will also feature surprise athlete appearances and a used board drive to benefit the non-profit organization, Boards for Bros. Anyone who brings a used skate deck will be able to access the park 30 minutes early and receive a free Vans skate tool.

The SESSIONS music showcase has evolved this year, and will include a chance to be chosen to “Share the Stage” with a global headliner talent at a future House of Vans Brooklyn show. Aspiring SESSIONS performers can submit music to be selected to play one of the five events at House of Vans Brooklyn, email your music to
