Ghetto Games Festival (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. The organisers 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.

Festival is also focused on alternative sport activities, that attract the most of the attention of todays´ youth such as inline skating, skateboarding, BMX riding or even wakeboarding. Furthermore, in 2017 GGFEST will become the first ever Baltic Alternative Sports Olympics. Both amateur and professional athletes from Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia will compete for the first ever “Olympic” medals in their beloved alternative sports.
Innovative aspect in this event is that GGFEST offers unique possibility of world's best athletes meeting local talents and fans, whose dream is to become as good as their idols. Organising this event and giving the opportunity to meet the legends in their field, might inspire and motivate them to continue with their hard work in the sport they like.
