Winterfest 2013


Don’t miss the San Francisco Bicycle Coalition’s 18th annual Winterfest fundraising auction and member party is the biggest bicycle bash in the Bay Area. Since 1995, Winterfest has become the year’s “must-go” event for our members, as well as local business owners, political decision makers, and bike industry leaders.

Winterfest captures the energy of the San Francisco bike riding community – a fun, supportive, and diverse group of people who come together to celebrate the SF Bicycle Coalition’s successes of the past year, show support for our organization and purchase new bikes and local products.

The evening’s festivities include a bike and silent auction, a 50-piece local art auction, entertainment, nibbles, drinks, and more.

Thanks to the generous Winterfest Sponsors!

Root Division’s mission is to improve appreciation and access to the visual arts by connecting personal inspiration and community participation. We provide subsidized studio space to working artists in exchange for their service in creating shared learning opportunities for the community. Artists develop creatively and professionally by teaching art to underserved youth, leading adult education classes, and producing exhibitions that showcase local emerging artwork. By combining multiple opportunities for creative exchange, Root Division cultivates an artistic ecosystem that enriches life throughout the Bay Area.

Root Division is supported in part by grants from The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Walter & Elise Haas Fund, Drusie Davis Family Fund, Grants for the Arts: San Francisco Hotel Tax Fund, San Francisco Arts Commission / Cultural Equity Grants, Zellerbach Family Foundation, W A Gerbode Foundation, Fleishhacker Foundation, Art4Moore, A Better Place Foundation, and Bill Graham Memorial Fund.
