Apply to be a Pedaler’s Fair Exhibitor

We are excited to announce the sixth annual Pedaler’s Fair, returning for the second consecutive year to the streets and breweries of Seattle’s Ballard neighborhood on Sunday, July 2, 2017 from 1-8 p.m.

Every year, the heart and soul of Pedaler’s Fair is showcasing the best independent makers of bikes, bike products, and bicycle-inspired goods in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and British Columbia. Like 2016, this year’s event will be on NW 49th Street in Ballard, connecting the breweries of Peddler Brewing, Lagunitas Brewing, and Northwest Peaks Brewery.

With beer flowing, great food, live music playing, and fun times in the streets, Pedaler’s Fair continues to grow with more and more attendees. Plus, once again, Pedaler’s Fair will be the highlight of FREE BIKE, Seattle’s ten-day festival in early July that celebrates bike culture with fun, crowdsourced bike rides and activities.

Whether you’re a framebuilder, bike clothing maker, beekeeper who transports your or honey to customers by bike — or a food truck or a food bike — or an artist who makes bike-themed posters — we hope you’ll join with the thousands of Pedaler’s Fair attendees and FREE BIKE participants in building an enthusiastic bike community.
