Tour de Fat Returns to Chicago!Tour de Fat, a daylong festival in the park that celebrates the bicycle, showcases New Belgium beers and provides eclectic and engaging entertainment for all. It’s a free event, but all proceeds from beer sales go to local nonprofits. In Chicago, the benefiting nonprofit is West Town Bikes. Tour de Fat raised more than $600,000 for nonprofit organizations in 2014 alone.
Each festival kicks off with a bicycle parade through city streets in celebration of the bike. Costumes and other expressions of alter egos are highly encouraged! Each parade route is designed for people of all skill levels, wrapping up at the park for a day of bikes, beer and bemusement.
The events kick off in Palmer Square and the eclectic entertainment takes over, with national musical acts to yo-yo performers, touring comedy groups, artistic ensembles, bike contests and even vaudeville acts. You won’t want to miss the 1,000 Person Dance Contest either – there’s a wide variety of games and activities for everyone to enjoy!
