We’ve made the tough decision (again) to cancel the Evergreen Mountain Bike Festival for 2021.
Due to a number of factors beyond our control: pandemic event restrictions, bike industry supply shortages, cutbacks in manufacturer demo programs, and a high level of concern for the well being of our community, we have made the decision to once again pull away from holding this event.
Our resources are limited right now, and we felt our time and effort was better spent ensuring that we could continue to allocate funding to ongoing trail maintenance and building projects for 2021. This is our favorite annual event drawing well over 3,000 visitors over the course of the weekend. It is a hallmark of Evergreen’s community programs, and serves as an important annual fundraiser and source of community stoke.
We will take a financial hit, but the safety and health of the local riding community is our foremost concern.
This cancellation is a bummer for our awesome vendors too. Many have told us that our festival is their busiest demo event of the entire season. We don’t take this lightly, and we’re working on finding new ways to allow the local riding community to connect with these top brands and reps. More than anything we miss the stoke! Everyone is so excited to ride cool bikes on great trails, and meet new friends over a cold beer or a jump line. We are going to be working hard to keep this stoke alive however we can for you.
