Sponsorship and Vending Opportunities

We Can’t Do It Without You!  We Didn’t Do It Without You!

Registration Closed on April 5th and Our 2017 Registered Participants are Spectacular!

San Francisco has the Tour de Fat, Oakland has PedalFest and with your help we can continue to grow our region’s own Silicon Valley Bikes! Festival & Bicycle Show. Baked into our Fest is support for History San José, Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition, our regions bicycling clubs, riding groups and the not-for-profit helping organizations that use bicycles for good works.

Many thanks to our major donors  who  pledged their support and registered for our May 7, 2017 Fest: The Mineta Transportation Institute, Santa Clara Valley Brewing,  Silicon Valley Bicycle Coalition, Specialized Bicycles, Bay Area Bicycle Law, Sony’s Future Lab Program, Stampede Bikes, Allterra Solar,  San Jose Bike Polo, the Petite Galleria and the Almaden Cycling Touring Club. Please see our “2017 Participants” page for a complete list of exhibitors.

It’s not too early to plan for May 6th 2018!

We start soliciting exhibiting sponsors in November. Our 2018 registration will close on Monday April 2, 2018.  If you sell bicycling related products or services or products that are of special interest to our Valley’s cyclists and if you would like to become a 2018 sponsoring exhibitor or if you are a helping organization that uses bicycles for great good in the Santa Clara Valley and would like to exhibit on May 6, 2018, please contact Diane Solomon at siliconvalleybikes@historysanjose.org.

Our 4th Annual Silicon Valley Bikes! Festival & Bicycle Show will be held on Sunday May 6, 2018
