Friday August 6: Get ready to kickoff BikeFest and use those legs for dancing!
BikeFest is on its way, and it’s time to get ready for one of the best parties of the year – BikePGH’s BikeFest Kickoff Fundraiser Party!
Our largest party of the year kicks off BikeFest in style, and raises funds to support BikePGH’s advocacy efforts. Our annual 12-day BikeFest includes tons of great bike-themed events, created by cyclists, for cyclists.
THE PARTY BEFORE THE PARTY: THE VIP EVENT 6:30-8:00
Join us early for some delicious food and great music at the BikeFest VIP Party. The event will feature appetizers by Salt of the Earth, the future Garfield restaurant owned by local star chef and bicyclist Kevin Sousa, whose restaurants consistently rank among Pittsburgh’s top 25. The party will also feature live jazz music by marimba virtuoso Marcus Kim.
For $100 per ticket, the VIP Party and will help stimulate Pittsburgh’s bicycle infrastructure in a big, big way.
Included with the VIP Ticket is: one BikePGH Membership, admission to the BikeFest Party Main Event, 5 drink tickets, 5 raffle tickets, and a BikeFest T-shirt.
BIKEFEST PARTY MAIN EVENT 8:00-12:00
After the VIP event, the main event will kick into gear with DJs, a photo booth, a silent auction, dancing and more! As usual, there will be tons of swag that will be raffled off and available in the silent auction, including Trek and KHS commuters, a Dahon folding bike, and a sweet Mavic wheelset, among others. Details will be posted soon, so stay tuned!
Food from Whole Foods and Dozen as well as local beer from the Penn Brewery.
