Boise Goathead Fest Parade

What is the Boise Goathead Fest?

Boise Goathead Fest is a 2-day Pedal-Powered, Wonderfully Weird, and Bona Fide Boise festival that celebrates and supports Boise's diverse and thriving bicycle community. Together our tires are always full!

What is the Pedal-Powered Parade?

The Pedal-Powered Parade is the cornerstone of Boise Goathead Fest. It is an "all-ages, all-bikes, all-abilities, all-types-of-pedal-powered-people parade" that celebrates our entire bicycle community. In this parade, you aren't the spectator. You are the star! So pump up your tires, put on your costume, and get ready to ride! The route is about 2 miles long, and we're expecting over 6,000 riders from Boise and beyond! Together we ride strong!

What is the Parade schedule?

  • 9am: Kids costume and bike decorating party. With coffee available for purchase from Dawson Taylor!
  • 10am: Parade Registration
  • 11am: Parade Ceremony and Launch!
  • 12pm: Boise Goathead Fest in Cecil D Andrus Park! Together we'll party!

How Much?

There is a $5 recommended donation for participating in the parade (discounts for groups and families), and those funds go directly to the bicycle nonprofit of your choice! Passionate about this parade? You can donate more if you choose. With your donation of $5 or more, you also get a limited edition Boise Goathead Fest parade patch. Together we can empower our bicycle nonprofits!

How to register a team:

1. Have your Team Captain go to the Parade Registration Link!
2. Click Register, Click Team, Click Create Team, and Enter a team name.
3. Click View Team Page and customize any info you'd like. If you want your team to have specific costume theme, have a special meeting place and time before the parade, or anything else, this would be a good place to enter that info.

4. All set! Don't forget to give your team members the name so they can register under it!

Boise Goathead Fest History?

Boise has become well know for hosting one of America's largest annual bicycle parades during Tour De Fat. In 2018, New Belgium Brewing handed over the reins to the Boise Bicycle Project and said, "Create something beautiful and unique for Boise's bicycle community, and we'll support it!"

And Boom! Boise Goathead Fest was born! With the support of New Belgium and the local bicycle community, we've created a local event with limitless potential for impact. Together we can transform Boise into the Bicycle Capital of America.

Boise Goathead Fest Future?

In 2019 we hope to...

  • Raise $40,000 for bicycle nonprofits
  • Collect and eliminate 2 tons of Goatheads
  • Gather over 8000 people for the Pedal Powered Parade

By 2020 we hope to...

  • Raise $100,000 for bicycle nonprofits each year
  • Eliminate Goatheads from our neighborhoods and trailheads
  • Host the largest bicycle parade in the country. Oh yes! Together we can!
