Mako Medical Sk8te Raleigh is be a three-day pop-up indoor skating rink to be held April 16-18 in the Raleigh Convention Center. The event organized via a partnership with DJ Uniq and Shop Local Raleigh are working together to bring business and community together in an effort to allow for safe and fun entertainment back in our once vibrant downtown. 

The idea for the event came from DJ Uniq trying to find ways to allow our community to get back out while enjoying music and combining the love of a favorite pastime, skating. DJ Uniq approached Shop Local Raleigh to come on as an event partner to produce the event and the team signed on Mako Medical as the title sponsor. “Mako Medical is happy to support this event focused on getting people back out and downtown safely and via an event that promotes health and wellness,” says Mako Medical CEO Chad Price. 

General admission is $13 including skate rental, $10 if you bring your own skates, $3 for spectators, and $2 off for first responders. Eleven skating sessions will be available over the three-day period and each skating session is two hours allowing time for the room to be sanitized between each session.  All skaters and patrons will be required to wear a mask at all times and social distancing guidelines will be followed.
