Pannonian Challenge, the most famous extreme sports event and the most recognizable brand of Osijek, was founded in 1999 and has been the center of alternative culture for the last 18 years.
Pannonian started out small with just a few skaters jumping around and doing tricks. Every year it grew a little bigger, so Pannonian Challenge XIV had to move from the skate park to the Copacabana. The new location offers a bigger park and more space for the bleachers that our many visitors will enjoy. Thanks to them, Pannonian is right now one of the most significant extreme sports events in the region, and that is proven with the fact that Osijek will be one of the stops of the BMX Freestyle World Cup.
Aside from the extreme sports, Pannonian is also a host to many eminent music icons that are a part of the night program. A great number of artists performed at our festival: Kiril Djaikovski, Edo Maajka, S.A.R.S, Hladno pivo and many others.
Every year this festival is getting closer and closer to the top of extreme sports events, and with Pannonian hosting this year’s BMX World Cup, there is no denying that one day it will end up on the top.
