Gigantic Bicycle Festival
Fri. Aug 22, 2014 7:00pm to Sun. Aug 24, 2014 8:00pm
Gigantic is the Pacific Northwest’s annual summer celebration of bicycle culture. The three 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.
The festival lineup for 2014 features Menomena, Telekinesis, Hey Marseilles, The Moondoggies, Anomie Belle, Norey, Blue Skies for Black Hearts, Gibraltar, Moraine, and many more.
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. Camping for Saturday through Sunday is available to riders and festival goers.
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 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.
