To kick summer off in style, the inaugural Northwest Tune-Up festival, a celebration of mountain biking, beer and music, will be held June 5-7, 2020 in Bellingham, Washington. In a region overflowing with passionate bikers, renowned brewers and talented musicians, the Tune-Up is excited to bring together the many cultures that make the Pacific Northwest so special.
Bellingham’s newly renovated Waterfront District will serve as the festival’s downtown hub, hosting races, demos, concerts and libations, while Galbraith Mountain, the city’s premier network of trails, will be the base for the festival’s on-hill mountain bike demos and races.
“A decade ago, Brandon Watts and I started the dream of showcasing our amazing bike community and the trails that drew both of us to Bellingham. We’re also passionate about craft beer and music, so we’re thrilled to have an all-star team from the beer, bike and music industry bringing the NW Tune-Up to Bellingham,” said Eric Brown, NW Tune-Up Co-Creator.
“The Port of Bellingham is excited to be working in partnership with NW Tune-Up. This signature event will contribute to the economic growth of our region. It will also be an opportunity not just for mountain bikers but our whole community to truly experience what the Waterfront District has to offer today and into the future.”—Rob Fix, Port of Bellingham Executive Director.
The three-day festival will be action-packed and family friendly. From morning yoga sessions on the waterfront to downtown bike races and concert-filled evenings, there will be endless opportunities to explore and enjoy all that Bellingham has to offer. In a collaborative fashion, the Tune-Up is not only dedicated to providing one amazing weekend of fun, but a lasting impact filled with recreational opportunities and infrastructure that contributes to the region’s legacy.
