Join us where it all began in 1973! Hosted at Tyson’s Event Center the RAGBRAI Expo features over 60 industry vendors, the RAGBRAI outlet tent, RAGBRAI official bike shops, food vendors, beer garden, and live entertainment! Kick off the 50th with a day of entertainment capped off by the Spin Doctors!

The RAGBRAI Expo – the largest bicycle expo in the Midwest will be from July 22, 2023 from 12pm-9pm at Tyson’s Events Center in Sioux City.

Free and open to the public, the RAGBRAI Expo will showcase our Official Bike Shops, bicycle/component manufacturers from around the country and retailers associated with the cycling industry.

Beeline to the RAGBRAI Merchandise trailers for brand new exclusive RAGBRAI 50 t-shirts, jerseys, and more! And our famous Outlet Tent with some smoking deals. Look for the big white tent!

The JustGoBike Podcast will be recording live from the RAGBRAI Expo! Stop by and meet Murph and AP, and grab a sticker!

Our other exhibitors will feature product demonstrations, the latest in cycling gear and apparel, health and nutritional information and much more!

To be honest, there is nothing that you need for RAGBRAI that you can not find at the Expo. If you need a new jersey, or seven, we’ve got it. If you need energy supplements and electrolytes to help get you through the week, we’ve got them too. Did you forget some camping supplies? We’ve got that taken care of this year.
