Returning after a hiatus due to the pandemic, New Belgium Brewing will revive its beloved annual event, Tour de Fat, on Saturday, October 8, 2022 at 11:30 AM. Tour de Fat is a community-driven celebration centered around bicycles and beer. In 1999, New Belgium launched the event and have presented it annually in Asheville and Fort Collins, Colorado ever since.
Traditionally, Tour de Fat features a pedal-powered bicycle parade with costumed riders of all ages among the fold. You'll also enjoy music, games, entertainment, and plenty of New Belgium beer pouring from the taps during the event.
Tour de Fat benefits bicycle advocacy and nonprofit organizations in the cities. More than $5 million has been raised to support bike advocacy, education, and trails.
The details for this year’s "festival of wheels" are still being planned. Check here for updates as the event draws closer.
