What: Tour de Fat Tempe, Saturday, October 5, 2019
Festivities in the park:
It’s back! New Belgium’s annual Tour de Fat is back for 2019, offering a day packed full of FREE festivities celebrating beer, bikes, and bemusement. Entering its 20th season, the Tour de Fat has raised nearly $6 million dollars for local bike non-profits since it all began. Join us for a three-city tour of bike parades, touring ensembles of comedians, cirque performers, general mayhemists, top-notch live musicians and, of course, world-class New Belgium beer.
It’s a celebration of great beer, good people, and humankind’s most wonderful invention – the bicycle! So, come celebrate self-propelled, two-wheel travel and dress up as your alter ego while raising money for your hometown cycling community — hit the links below to see the Tour de Fat line-up near you.
Get your costume ready. It’s time to shift gears and get weird.
