Welcome to Barnstaple’s Urban Sports Festival! The Barnstaple USF is aimed at giving non-mainstream sports a platform to showcase them to their core communities as well as to the wider public.

The event will celebrate those that take part in these sports, and will celebrate Barnstaple’s offer as an ‘urban playground’. It will also provide an opportunity for people young and old to try these sports and get involved.

This will be a festival-style, free to attend, day-long community event that comprises skateboard and BMX competitions and demonstrations, scooter sessions, roller skating, parkour, have-a-go sessions, street food, music, stalls and traders.
