2019 Boise Goathead Fest

Radio Boise is partnering with Boise Bicycle Project at the second Boise Goathead Fest for a celebration of the bicycle community in Idaho!

For years, the “goathead monster” has been a scourge: rides ruined, tires trashed and punctures have permeated our pedal-powered lives. But now the monster’s had a change of heart. Instead of popping tires, Boise’s most despised invasive specie will be giving back by throwing an awesome party on Friday, August 2 and Saturday, August 3 at Cecil D. Andrus Park in Downtown Boise.

Join us for live music, games, food, the now-legendary bike parade and more.

Or, volunteer and help us make this Goathead Fest ever more successful and fun than last year!
