This inaugural Festival of Speed takes over Fitchburg on July 7th, 2018!

The Fitchburg Festival of Speed is an all-day festival taking place at the beautiful Agora complex. This first-time event should top your list of "Can't-Miss" summer activities, whether you join as a spectator or participant.

-->For participants, the Festival of Speed plays host to the Wisconsin Cycling Association's State Championships and winners will be taking home $3,800 in prize money. If you're looking for a more relaxed participation, we've added a beautiful 25-Mile Ride to help you explore the hidden secrets of Fitchburg and Paoli.  Runners and walkers can join in on the fun with the Andy Nelesen Memorial Donor Dash 5K or the 1-Mile Run. The fastest 15 male and female participants of the 5K will go on to participate in the Kwik Trip $1,000 Mile where, you guessed it, they'll be racing to take up $1,000 in Kwik Trip prizes.

-->Spectating is FREE and open to the public, but the absolute best seats in the house are in the exclusive VIP area (limited to only 100 guests).  A Kids Zone provides a family-friend environment with a bounce house, pedestal joust, inflatable slide, caricature artist, balloon artist and face painter. Live music will begin at 6:00pm with local, Madison-based The Ryan McGrath Band and The Rotation, followed by headliner Walker McGuire.
