Trenton Sk8s performance crew, hailing from throughout the Garden State, finds its home at the heart of NJ's capital. Founder, Jaclyn Duncan (@rollingintune) began hosting events at Cadwalader Park in Trenton, NJ in April 2022 under the name "Trenton Sk8s".
The event began with just a few members who would meet weekly to skate until sun down. Now, over a year later, over 200 skaters have participated in Trenton Sk8s events. Featured in the Star Ledger, Times of Trenton, Trenton Journal and NJ.com, the Trenton Sk8s community continues to expand. In addition to skating, the weekly events feature live DJs, merch sales and a potluck cookout! For many, roller skating isn't just a hobby.
It's a lifestyle, an outlet for creative expression, and even a form of therapy. Trenton Sk8s would love to introduce the world to the joy that we've found in roller skating! To do so, Jaclyn handpicked the most enthusiastic Trenton Sk8ers to join her in bringing roller skating out of the rink and into the local community!
