Canfest, Reno Bike Project Team Up for Donations

Posted: Updated:

This year's Canfest is teaming up with the Reno Bike Project. Anyone who donates a bike to the project will receive a free ticket to the festival.

Organizers say they're excited to be part of the 5th annual event. "Canfest is the best event in Reno at that time, it's right before Burning Man, it's a great way to kick off the party, so bring us a bike, get a free ticket, go enjoy Canfest," says Reno Bike Project's Jeff Mitchell.

Bike Project officials say the ticket promotion is important to them, because they're in desperate need of more bicycles for the summer season - bikes they refurbish and give to those in need.

Canfest Kicks off August 24th at the Peppermill Resort Hotel. Organizers say the event will feature dozens of breweries from around the world, all competing in a competition to determine who has the best canned brew.

Tickets start at $35. A portion of the proceeds benefit the Reno Bike Project.
