Come to Mountain Fest 2017
Mountain Fest has become one of the premiere East Coast mountain bike events. Run by the not-for-profit Velo MSM trail crew, with assistance from Mont Ste Marie management, this fundraiser has enabled the trail organization to continue the expansion and maintenance of the trail system.
This season the volunteers hope to facilitate the creation of 3 new trails, with the goal of having all of them ride-able by Mountain Fest. The unique blend of events, for riders and non-riders has created an awesome experience for the whole family.
Mountain Fest tickets are your gift that keeps on giving!
Many of the development grants that Velo MSM applies for are ‘matching’ grants. Essentially, this means that in order to receive the grant money, we need to demonstrate that we have the ability to match the grant’s contribution dollar for dollar. One of the key reasons why the festival exists (besides the fact that mountain biking is fun and the MTB community is awesome) is as a means to generate the revenue that can be used for matching grants to build more trails.
Three days of epic biking, fun and challenging races, an industry expo including bike demos, music, and lots of activities for the whole family.
