What's Happening in September
The New Haven Grand Prix

September 13 4-10 p.m.
Downtown New Haven
From an impressive lineup of professional and amateur cyclists vying for honors, to live entertainment and the bustling Apizza & Eats Feast Expo Area, this isn’t your ordinary bike race or street festival. It’s an extravaganza that highlights all of New Haven’s greatest aspects – It’s food, it’s nightlight, and it’s cycling and pedestrian friendly vibrancy. Last year 15,000 spectators came to witness what has become the city’s most anticipated late summer event. New this year is the Corkscrew Challenger, a race up the Crown Street Garage open to everyone. Learn more here.

The Apizza Feast will be located along College Street and will offer pizza, food & drink stands, local restaurants, beer & wine gardens. It's the perfect venue to cheer on the racers. The event will be family friendly and full of food, fun and festivity!
