Gigantic Bicycle Festival
Snoqualmie, Washington, USA
Gigantic is the Pacific Northwest’s annual summer celebration of bicycle culture. The two day, mid-August festival features a diverse, multi-faceted and regionally representative mix of live music, hand-built bicycles, visual & performance art, film, comedy, guest speakers, sculpture, and interactive installation pieces.
Many festival goers arrive at the grounds via bicycle along supported (and highly praised) century and 77 mile road rides leaving Seattle’s Magnuson Park in the early morning.
Monthly art installations and film screenings begin in May, presenting previews to August and taking over venues and gallery spaces in the greater Seattle and Portland metropolitan areas.
The event is produced by The Levee Breaking, a support the arts non-profit and production company based in Seattle.
The 2014 Gigantic Bicycle Festival takes over Centennial Fields Park in Snoqualmie, Washington for the weekend of August 23rd & 24th. A supported road bike ride leaves Magnuson Park on Saturday August 23rd, to have riders arriving at the festival grounds during the afternoon Saturday. Riders, as part of their registration fee, get a full weekend pass to the Gigantic Bicycle Festival, and free admission to all Bike Reels and Inky Spokes events, along with a full zip bike jersey following the Gigantic Bicycle Festival poster design.
