Gigantic
Gigantic is the Pacific Northwest's annual summer celebration of bicycle culture. The three day August festival features a diverse, multi-faceted and regionally representative mix of live music, hand-built bicycles, visual & performance art, film, comedy, guest speakers, sculpture, and interactive installation pieces.

Many festival goers arrive at the grounds via bicycle along supported (and highly praised) century and 77 mile road rides leaving Seattle's Magnuson Park Saturday morning.

Monthly art installations and film screenings begin in May, presenting previews to August and taking over venues & gallery spaces in Washington and Oregon.
