August 22-24

Gigantic is the Pacific Northwest’s annual summer celebration of bicycle culture. The two day festival features a diverse, multi-faceted and regionally representative mix of live music, hand-built bicycles, visual and performance art and film. Many festival goers arrive at the grounds at Centennial Fields Park in Snoqualmie via bicycle along supported 100-mile and 70-mile road rides leaving Seattle’s Magnuson Park early Saturday morning.  Monthly art installations and film screenings will be featured in the greater Seattle and Portland areas from May to August. All proceeds of the bike race and weekend concert tickets support local artists and musicians via The Levee Breaking, a Seattle based non profit.

*Gigantic is also supporting Washington Bikes this year and will donate 15% of the basic century/festival pass fee ($13.50) directly to Washington Bikes for riders who indicate the organization as their "team" in the drop down box at the bottom the online registration form using the code WAbikes.
