Event description

Description

Do you love to bike? Do you love to dance? Do you love multicoloured lights and sweet tunes? Art in the Open & Upstreet Craft Brewing wants you to come out and show your love for all of the above at the 4th annual Bike Rave, the biggest mobile dance party of the East Coast! On August 16th, instead of waiting for the party to happen, we create it and bring it with us, sharing the love all over downtown Charlottetown!

This event is the only fundraising event for the Art in the Open Festival and is a celebration of bikes and lights at night, so come on out and support a great local event! As we make our way from Confederation Landing through downtown, we will surprise and delight passers with our portable party! Please note, this is an all-ages, chem-free event, but for those who are 19 or older, there will be a Neon Friday dance party at Upstreet at the conclusion of the Bike Rave where their awesome craft brews and sodas will be available. Before the afterparty, we will be giving out prizes for Best Dressed Bike, Raddest Raver and more, so stick around!

This year’s theme is Going Green! In an effort to move the rave in a more sustainable, more eco-friendly direction, we will no longer be providing single-use plastic glowsticks and we are returning to the rave’s DIY roots. Instead of purchasing single-use plastics for our annual event, we encourage participants to use reusable LEDs, headlamps, USB Christmas lights or other items to deck out their bikes to be the best and the brightest, while also being compassionate to our environment.

PRO TIPS FROM EXPERIENCED BIKE RAVERS

Ride safe! Be conscious of drivers and other riders. Give other bike ravers lots of room on the roads and bike paths. If someone falls over, pick them up and see if they are ok. Bike ravers are lovers, not fighters!

Stay with the rave! The Bike Rave is not a race- if you are too far ahead and we make a turn, we will not be sending out a search party, but if you get lost, meet us at Upstreet for prizes and more dancing.

Make sure you have all that’s legally required to ride a bike on the streets of Charlottetown.

LEAVE NO TRACE. We want this year to be as clean as can be! Throw out your trash or bring it with you to a place where you can.

Standard disclaimer: Please note that Bike Rave does not condone the use of illicit substances and/or alcohol while riding a bike; this is a chem-free event. We’ll celebrate our flashy victory over a pint afterward!

Be kind to bystanders, volunteers, and the police. The Police have been quite supportive of this event over the last few years, so show your appreciation!
