Tour de Fat Visits Chicago

  • Huntington Bank Pavilion at Northerly Island 1300 South Linn White Drive Chicago, IL, 60605 United States (map)

Tour de Fat is a traveling craft beer bike extravaganza put on by New Belgium. Enjoy competitions such as the slow ride - a bike race where the last person to cross the finish line wins! Entertainment includes musicians, circus performers, vaudeville acts, magicians, comedians, and mind-blowing provocateurs. Costumes are highly encouraged (and a mindset to party is mandatory).

Chicago's Tour de Fat will benefit West Town Bikes. 

4:00 pm: Festival Opens 

4:20 pm:  Fire Leopard  
4:40 pm: Fashion Show
              Great costumes deserve great admiration. The fashion show is open to all who want to show off their Tour de Fat costume on the catwalk. 
5:25 pm: Ric Wilson
6:25 pm: SLOW RIDE           

              Race your fellow Tour de Fat-goers in a bike race where the last person to cross the finish line is the winner. The catch: if you put a foot down, you’re out. 
7:00 pm: Dance Contest
               Here’s your chance to strut your stuff. The winner walks away with a New Belgium cruiser bike! 
7:30 pm:  The Roots 
9:00 pm: Curfew

Also featuring Le Tigre Tent:

Le Tigre Venues are made up of  talented vaudevillians, musicians, artists and clowns.  Each show is a jewel in the crown of intimate theatre that draws upon carnival-esqe sideshow adventures. The performances and art displayed are honed by the professionalism that  our cast has from working for such companies as Spiegelworld, Blue Man Group, Cirque Du Soleil, 500 Clown, Mucca Pazza & more.
