New Belgium Brewing Fat Tire Presents Tour de Fat Minneapolis

New Belgium Brewing’s “Fat Tire presents the Tour de Fat” is back for its 18th season and this year without question will be the biggest and boldest yet. The traveling philanthropic beer, music, and bike festival will return to Minneapolis on August 19th taking place at The Cabooze in Minneapolis.

Expect to experience the unexpected. New Belgium Brewing is bringing the party with The Record Company and the Tour de Fat ensemble cast of performers. Ready your eyes and ears for a mix of musicians, circus performers, vaudeville acts, magicians, comedians, and mind-blowing provocateurs. Costumes are highly encouraged (and a mindset to party is mandatory). New Belgium has raised more than $4.5 million for partnering non-profits since its inception. This summer Tour de Fat hopes to generate more than $600,000 in support of local causes. Tour de Fat Minneapolis benefits Midtown Greenway Coalition, so be sure to grab your tix today.

“This is one of the greatest ways we can give back to local communities,” said New Belgium Brand Manager, Sam Sawyer. “Not only do folks get a great event with top musical acts and plenty of spectacle, local non-profits get a cash injection and the opportunity to share their message. It’s like a win-win-and win-again scenario. This is without a doubt some of the most fun we have all year.”
