Call for events 2018
We are putting together the programme for this year’s Edinburgh Festival of Cycling (#EdFoC2018) and invite you to get involved. If you would like to run an event as part of the Festival, please get in touch. This year, EdFoC has been extended to include an extra weekend and runs from Thursday 8th June to Sunday 24th, 2018. We are open to suggestions of any types of events that fit within the aims of the Festival.
Unlike some cycling festivals, The Edinburgh Festival of Cycling doesn’t just revolve around the sports side of cycling (although we aim to cater for sports cycling in all its forms as well). There are so many sides to cycling – from transport to sport, from leisure activity to cultural icon – all of which the Festival sets out to celebrate, including a wide range of cultural, sporting and fun events for all ages across the city. Basically, if it involves wheels, pedals (although pedal-less balance bikes are also welcome) and human-powered cycling, or references these, we will consider it for inclusion.
If you would like to submit one or more events for inclusion, please use the form below. For informal enquiries, please contact email@example.com. The closing date for the printed programme is 17:00 on Thursday 15th March 2018, but we’d really appreciate earlier approaches ;-).
Running any festival costs money and EdFoC is no different, so we have to charge an event listing fee. These fees are to help cover the costs of the programme production and festival promotion (last year this cost us over £4,000). The fee level is the same for listing in the printed programme and on the website, or in the online programme only. If you charge people to take part in your event, the listing fee is £25 per event. If your event is free to take part in, the listing fee is £10 for each event.
