The Northwest Tune-Up
The Northwest Tune-Up is a bike, beer and music festival held in celebration of PNW culture. This three-day event showcases the beauty of the region and everything it has to offer. Whether exploring world-class mountain bike singletrack, enjoying each evening’s lineup of live music on Bellingham’s waterfront or indulging in the best beers from across the Northwest, the Tune-Up has something for everyone.
Bikes & Racing
Fun For The Whole Family
At heart, Bellingham is a mountain bike town with a passionate outdoor community. The on-trail portion of the Northwest Tune-Up will take place on Galbraith Mountain and Chuckanut, just a short pedal from downtown. From a four to six-stage enduro to group trail rides, skills clinics and bicycle demos from the industry’s top brands, there will be no shortage of two-wheeled fun. On the waterfront, spectator-friendly races, kids events and demos will bring the excitement to the festival grounds downtown.
Music & Entertainment
A Perfect Complement To Bikes & Beer
The Northwest is rich in music and art culture, both of which are key components of the Northwest Tune-Up experience. Through a curated lineup of 20+ artists on the waterfront stages, Bellingham Bay will be resonating with the region’s best music. On-hand beer vendors, local art, spectator friendly bike events and three evenings of headlining musical acts will provide fun for the whole family.
Beer & Cider
Fuel For A Good Time
Days filled with bikes and live music are only made better with beer. As hop-capital, USA, the Pacific Northwest has an impressive number of world-renowned breweries, several of which call Bellingham home. The Northwest Tune-Up will feature 24 of the finest craft breweries and cideries from around the region, featuring a wide variety of beer styles from some of the most sought-after brewers.
