Event Details

DATE: Friday, May 11th 2012
TIME: 8 PM to 12 AM
LOCATION: The Eastern Market North Hall
TICKETS: $55 or $45 for Members
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!
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.
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 Jolly Brother Trio and the Brian Settles Quartet… and some surprise entertainment.
Last year’s successful Bikebuild contest is back, and our competitors (Papillon CycleThreePenny Bikes, and Silver Cycles) are more clever than ever. Builders are given two rules: keep it cheap and keep it creative. The winning silent steed wil be decided by vote, and each bike will be auctioned off to the highest bidder. Papillon took the trophy home last year but we hear Silver Cycles and Three Penny are going to give 'em a run for their money. Stay tuned to our blog for updates on the building process.

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?
