Q. What is Gigantic Bicycle Festival?
A. Gigantic is the Pacific Northwest’s annual summer celebration of bicycle culture. The multi-day summer festival features a diverse, multi-faceted and regionally representative mix of live music, hand-built bicycles, visual & performance art, film, story-tellers, guest speakers, workshops, interactive installation, cyclocross, guided cycle tours, and supported bike rides.
Q. What does the event look like in 2022?
A. The event is a Friday through Saturday this year. We're back to having a main music stage with national and local bands. There's camping Friday night, the Inky Spokes bike art gallery open both days, and the Gigantic Century, 50 Mile, and 20 Mile Saturday morning. There will be a beverage garden, food trucks and drink vendors Friday and Saturday.
Q. Where does the event take place?
A. The Gigantic Festival Grounds is at Centennial Fields Park, 39903 SE Park St, Snoqualmie, WA 98065. All bike rides begin and end at the park. Field camping is next door at the Meadowbrook Farm Preserve.
