Announcing BikeFest: WABA’s Annual Fundraiser Celebration and “All That Jazz…”

 WABA is positively jazzed to present this year’s BikeFest and for your pleasure, we invite you to pedal back in time and relive the jazz age!

Date: Friday, May 11th,
Time: 8pm to midnight
Location: Eastern Market’s North Hall
Ticket price: $55 or $45 for Members

For one night only, we’re turning DC’s Eastern Market into a bicycling speakeasy, so spread the word. Whether you’re a WABA member or not, come on down! Flappers, bootleggers, every day Joes and Joans will find joy and friends of all sorts in an unhurried evening of jazz, drink, food, treats, and more as we celebrate our victories and raise some funds.

Last year’s successful Bikebuild contest is back, and our competitors (Papillon Cycles, Three Penny Bikes, and Silver Cycles) are more clever than ever. As you’re perusing (and pursuing) the silent auction items and splurging on raffle tickets, we will have some splendid hors d’oeuvres to snack on and a secret specialty drink to toss back. To complete the experience, your eyes and ears will be treated to the The Jolley Brothers and the Brian Settles Quartet… and some surprise entertainment.

Come enjoy the fabled era of sport and leisure, dance and music, and stuff your pocketbooks before you arrive, because it’s all to support better biking!

If you’d like to dress up, please do. If you’d like to dress down, go right ahead. The drink is gin, the music is jazz, the dance is the charleston, and the good times don’t stop here! Ain’t we got fun?
