Tour de Fat is Coming!

FABB's major fundraising event of the year is coming up this month, so please mark your calendars to attend and perhaps even volunteer for New Belgium Brewery’s Tour de Fat. 

This charity event featuring beer, music, friends, and fun returns to DC on  Saturday, July 22. FABB has again volunteered to check identification and issue the wristbands needed to purchase beer. We plan to do two shifts of 2 /12 hours each and need 15 volunteers for each shift for a total of 30 volunteers. In addition to helping FABB earn its share of the gate, our volunteers get free admission to the Tour and will have time to experience some of the awesome music and fun.  

Vintage Trouble

Tour de Fat has changed this year to accommodate holding the event in more cities, presenting bigger entertainment acts, and reaching its goal of generating more money for its non-profit partners like FABB. The tour has moved to a paid, ticketed model and rather than an all-day event, it will be held from 4:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. next to Nationals Park. All tickets are for general admission and cost $25 (kids under 12 enter for free), rising to $30 two weeks prior to the show (get your tickets early!). In addition to the usual cast of circus performers, vaudeville acts, and magicians, the DC Tour de Fat will feature the rhythm and blues band Vintage Trouble.  Unfortunately, there is no bike parade this year, but wearing wild costumes is still encouraged. 

This is FABB’s best opportunity of the year to raise needed funds for our work on making bicycling better in Fairfax County. Please plan on joining us at the Tour as a volunteer or as just a music- and beer-lover. Also, please encourage your friends and family to attend this wonderful, family-friendly festival.
