Capital Cities, Brent Cowles Added to TOUR DE FAT

World-class acts, top-notch beer and philanthropic fun - get ready because "Fat Tire presents the Tour de Fat" from New Belgium Brewing is coming to Boulder on Friday, August 25. This year's tour is the biggest and boldest yet, traveling to 33 cities. Alternative rock bands Capital Cities and Wilderado will play the Boulder stop.

"This year we're bringing in top headliners, such as Capital Cities and Wilderado," said New Belgium Brand Manager, Sam Sawyer. "We've got an eclectic mix of local talent, vaudeville acts, and magicians, plus great beer and we'll be raising money for our non-profit partners. We couldn't be more excited to bring the party to Boulder!"

Tour de Fat revelers are encouraged to wear costumes and everyone 21 and older will be able to enjoy some of New Belgium's year-round line-up including the American craft beer icon, Fat Tire, Voodoo Ranger IPA and Citradelic Tangerine IPA.

Since 2000, Tour de Fat has raised close to $5 million for non-profit partners and hopes to generate more than $600,000 in support of local causes this year. The Boulder stop will benefit Community Cycles, an organization focused on promoting, educating, and advocating for the safe use of bicycles for transportation.

"Community Cycles has had a long, wonderful relationship with New Belgium through five years of partnering on the Clips Film and Beer Tour. This year, we are excited about New Belgium's expansion of Tour de Fat and looking forward to welcoming this event to Boulder. As the local partners and beneficiaries, New Belgium's events help us accomplish our mission of recycling over 3,000 bicycles a year, teaching bike safety and repair, getting thousands on low cost and non cost bicycles, and advocating for safe place to walk and ride," said Sue Prant, executive director of Community Cycles.
