B3 Fest – Bikes, Brews & Beats
The B3 Fest – Bikes, Brews & Beats is an annual celebration of Vermont mountain biking, craft beverages and music. This three-day, town-wide festival offers family-friendly events, food and drink specials, live music, group rides and more.
The weekend kicks off with the B3 Fest Block Party in the Stowe Village, featuring live music and samples and tastings from some of the area’s finest producers of craft brews and artisan foods. The popular Critical Mass Ride takes place immediately following the block party. This family-friendly bike ride begins at the Stowe Village and ends at the B3 Fest Kick-Off Party.
Throughout the weekend, area bike shops host mountain bike group rides throughout town, which start from and end at participating B3 Fest venues. All group rides are free to the public. The event is organized by Stowe Trails Partnership (STP), a Stowe-based non-profit organization that partners with the community to build and maintain a world-class trail network. STP manages more than 30 miles of mountain bike trails in Stowe.
