Velo Ball masthead

SABA’s annual fundraising gala is the year’s best and biggest party for everyone who loves what bicycling does for our community.

Join us for a celebration of Dia de los Muertos at Beatnik Studios, an industrial workshop-turned-art gallery at 723 S Street near Southside Park.

You’ll enjoy a casual cocktail party atmosphere with great Mexican street food by Florez Bar & Grill: street tacos, tostadas, flautas, tamales, slider-style tortas, fresh churros and more (including vegan options).

The hosted bar will feature local craft beer from Bike Dog Brewing in West Sacramento, local cider from Two Rivers Cider, Northern California varietal wines from Cabana Winery in East Sacramento, plus non-alcoholic drinks and fresh coffee from Insight Coffee Roasters.

DJ Larry Rodriguez of the Press Club will keep the music going. And of course, SABA’s Bike Valet will park your bike for free.

Wondering about your bike ride home or how to travel car-light for the evening? We’re excited to partner with Uber to offer Velo Ball guests who are first-time Uber customers $20 off their ride that evening. The new UberXL SUV service can even carry your bike home, too! You’ll receive more information when you purchase your Velo Ball tickets.
