2018 Tour de Fat! Who is ready party?

Fort Collins. Craft beer, marijuana, bike-friendly roads and awesome community activities are only a few of the attractions that this Northern Colorado mecca has to offer. And when you mix them all together, you get Tour de Fat; the Burning Man of the Rocky Mountains.

Tour de Fat, New Belgium Brewing’s philanthropic festival of costumes, beer, and biking has become one of Fort Collins’ most happenin’ events of the year. Beginning in 2000, this costume cladded festival has permeated outside of Colorado lines, now taking place across five other states.

  • The free-of-cost parade starts at 9:30-12:30, and festival events begin at 2:00 p.m.
  • The post-parade festival has a $15 entry fee. 2017 was the first year EVER that the event began to charge a $25 fee for post-parade events (located at New Belgium Brewery). But don’t fret, this year’s fee has gone down to a mere $15 per person. Hell yeah!
