Air + Style is a reflection of Shaun White's lifestyle involving sporting elements snowboarding, skiing, skateboarding and BMX; music from three stages inside and outside the Rose Bowl; an interactive kids area; a fashion show; technology; cuisine; gaming; and art reflected throughout the venue. White will participate in snowboarding and skateboarding exhibitions.
Food, fashion and art will also be featured over the two days. A host of celebrity chefs will be participating along with top food trucks and vendors. Fashion shows will be held on the surrounding grounds and on the snow ramp, and art exhibits will be on display through a public graffiti wall, giant digital displays, nightly light shows and art galleries throughout the venue.
What a cool, all-culture event!
