Come early for the pregame festivities at VBGB and Small Bar. Then walk to the amphitheater for a day of great beer, amazing tunes, new friends, plenty of chances to win prizes and play games. After the festival, dance the night away at the Fillmore! Offline users get 20% off and a special offer from Lyft with ticket purchase. Proceeds from this traveling philanthropic beer, music and bike festival will go to Bike Walk NC. See you there!
