Gigantic Bicycle Festival

Gigantic Bicycle Festival

August 24 - August 26 2018
Snoqualmie, Washington, USA

Gigantic Bicycle Festival is the Pacific Northwest’s annual summer celebration of bicycle culture.

The three day August festival features a diverse, multifaceted and regionally representative mix of live music, film, visual & performance art, cyclocross, road & trail rides, hand build bicycles, guest speakers, sculpture, and interactive installation.

The festival weekend opens with camping and outdoor movies Friday evening. A supported road ride with Century and 50 mile routes departs from the festival grounds Saturday morning. Festival goers spend the weekend camping, exploring the Snoqualmie Valley by bike, and taking in an impressive music lineup, outdoor movies, art and installation. Guided trail and road bike tours of the Snoqualmie Valley, cyclocross events, and a Sunday 8 mile family ride to a nearby blueberry farm are free to festival-goers during the weekend.

The 2018 Gigantic Bicycle Festival weekend will return to the city of Snoqualmie for the weekend of August 24th through 26th.
