The NYC Unicycle Festival takes place on Labor Day Weekend.

Produced by Bindlestiff Family Variety Arts, Inc., the New York City Unicycle Festival brings together recreational riders, world-class performers, mountain and off-road unicycle enthusiasts, mono-wheel vehicle inventors, and thousands of people who have not ridden in umpteen years, along with circus enthusiasts, extreme sports viewers, and anyone seeking an unusual sight–even for NYC!

All ages and abilities welcome.

NYC UniFestTour 2020! We couldn’t let a year go by without seeing our unicycle friends on Labor Day weekend. We’re going to make the best of what we can and plan three socially distant long-distance rides. Let’s soak up the last bit of the summer sun and ride in Manhattan, Brooklyn, and Staten Island. See the sights and grab some to-go bites.

Thursday, September 3, 2020 @ 11:30am, will take place in Staten Island! First, we’ll meet in front of St. George Ferry Terminal of the Staten Island Ferry, then we’ll head off and start pedaling down Front Street, along the water. We will make our way though some parks and then head back to the ferry. But we won’t leave without a stop for a solid slice.
Route Map:
Meeting/Start/End: Outside, front of St. George Ferry Terminal. Staten Island side of the ferry trip.

Friday, September 4, 2020 @ 3:00pm, is the day we will pedal through Brooklyn. Starting on the Brooklyn side of the Brooklyn Bridge, we will unicycle through Downtown Brooklyn all the way to Prospect Park, where we’ll stop and have an evening picnic. When it’s time, back to the Brooklyn Bridge we go, where we’ll end the day in Brooklyn Bridge Park with a sunset and a view.

Meeting/Start/End: Korean War Veterans Plaza

Saturday, September 5, 2020 @ 10:00am, will start and end in Battery Park City. We’ll ride along the Hudson River with a nice breeze though our hair as we make our way to the loop of Central Park. We’ll see many of the park’s famous attractions.
Route Map:
Meeting/Start: Pier A, Battery Park City. In front of Pier A Harbor House.
End: Times Square

Sunday, September 6, 2020, the final day of UniTour, will be spent with fellow riders at the NYC Unicycle Club at Grant’s Tomb. The club meets between 1:00pm – 5:00pm.

We want everyone to be safe. There will be social distancing protocols in place: riders will be broken into groups of ten or less; riders will need to stay six feet apart; and helmets and masks will be required. If the situation in New York City changes, or if other unforeseen circumstances arise, the event may be cancelled. Participation is at your own risk.

We hope to see you soon!
