The NIMBIN GNAR-WALLS event promises four days of fun, music, skating, art and excitement in Nimbin and Goonellabah from 3 March, with a flea circus on 3 March in Goonellabah to launch the event, before it moves to Nimbin the next day.

The four days will be a celebration of skating and music with gnar factor 100!, organisers say.

The event includes an Under 18s Flea Circus at Goonellabah on Friday, 3 March which promises to be full of fun and challenges, along with shows and music. The next day, the event moves to Nimbin for the main GNAR-WALLS rally at the Nimbin Skatepark. Don’t expect the ordinary and only come for fun.

Lismore City Council and the NSW Government are supporting the local skate community and bringing back friends and family for a final summer celebration of skating. Local businesses and local legends are all getting on board to ensure the famous hinterland hospitality is turned up to 11.

Mayor Steve Krieg said it promised to be a great event.

‘I am looking forward to NIMBIN GNAR-WALLS coming to Lismore and Nimbin. After a very tough 2022, events like this are important to bring our community together and have a bit of fun,’ he said.

‘It is one of a series of events that Council is holding as part of “Lismore Opening Our Heart” and I am looking forward to catching up with the community at NIMBIN GNAR-WALLS and all of our planned events. Let’s put 2022 well and truly behind us.’

Founder and Event Director Chad Ford said he was excited about staging the four-day event.

‘When you’re given the support to do something a bit different that gives back to the community in ways not often possible, then you should grab hold of that opportunity and invite everyone along to celebrate it to the fullest,’ he said.

‘The whole week of NIMBIN GNAR-WALLS is about fast-paced good times. It will be another epic chapter in the legend of Nimbin.

‘All the things that make skaters lifers will be in full effect for the week. Good times, rad concrete, crazy challenges, road tripping, camping, live bands rocking it out on the platform, huge gatherings of epic skaters, art, parties, generations deep with gnarly skating and bags of cash rewards for everyone that turns up the stoke levels.’ 

NIMBIN GNAR-WALLS is getting everyone together for a ripping week in The Hinterland. Pack your bags and get there.
