HotDogs & HandRails 2022

The Up North Festival is an event which combines two days of park riding and an urban music festival. It will be organized in Ruka for the second time on November 11-12, 2022. The traditional HotDogs & HandRails rail jam concept will take over Ruka Park for the event.

For the weekend, an unique and versatile Rail Plaza will be built in Ruka Park, where you will find obstacles that suites for all levels of park riders. Friday’s event format will be released in early fall 2022.

Saturday’s HDHR sessions feature traditional “dollars,” meaning the best individual tricks are rewarded on the flight, and the best in the series are rewarded at the end of the day. There will of course be free hot dogs on Saturday! At the sessions, the atmosphere is maintained by a great announcer and a DJ with good music. Some of the Up North artists will have a live show at the end of the day.
