House of Vans Joburg Presents Vans 50th Anniversary Celebrations

The House of Vans is where creative expression lives. It’s a place where imagination lets loose over skate obstacles, art installations, workshops and concert stages, inspiring every person who runs, rolls, or stomps through its door.

Following the success of House of Vans Cape Town in March, Vans are extremely excited to announce the stellar line-up of musical talent, artists and skaters who’ll be helping celebrate 50 Years “Off The Wall” which takes place from 25th August in Johannesburg.

The venue – 94 Juta Street, Braamfontein will be transformed into a creative space, skate park and music venue. Guests will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the House of Vans experience over a three day period, finishing on 27th August.

Tickets are free, and available HERE!

Throughout the event, the House of Vans gallery space will host commissioned art pieces from Black Koki, Danielle Clough and more. Showcasing heritage items from Vans 50 year history, the space will feature The Story of Vans campaign.
