2019 Tempe Tour de Fat

Come to one of the biggest cycling benefit events in the valley! New Belgium Brewing sponsors The Tour de Fat at Tempe Beach Park the first weekend in October every year.

Along with costumes, which are always encouraged (just look at some photos), we’re also interested in seeing bike floats! If it’s pedal powered, able to travel the entire parade route, and smaller than a compact car you should consider bringing it along to wow the crowd.

Tempe Bicycle Action Group, The Central Arizona Mountain Bike Patrol, and Bike Saviours Bicycle Collective, are the benefiting non-profits groups for the Tour de Fat. The event is staffed by volunteers and all proceeds go directly to these non-profit groups.

Schedule of events:

Bike Parade:
When: 11 a.m.- Noon
Where: Ash Avenue and Rio Salado Parkway

Festivities in the park:
When: 11:30 a.m.- 6 p.m.
    Main Stage Performances: 1 p.m. – 6 p.m 
Where: Tempe Beach Park

As we learn more about the day’s schedule we’ll post it here along with the multiple FB events you’ve probably already seen.

Volunteer Sign Up coming soon.

New to volunteering, this is what you get!
Entrance into the park, two free New Belgium beverages, all the high-fives your little hands can handle, and a little something special from the volunteer organizations. Various positions and shifts available on a first-come first-served basis. Grab your friends and form a team of volunteers to spread the love (<3 team costumes)!
