On June 8 2024, we helped the City of Everett, Massachusetts host the city's first Transportation Fair, a vibrant and engaging event that brought together the community to celebrate and explore sustainable transportation options. Held at 7 Acre Park along the Northern Strand Trail, the fair was a resounding success, with hundreds of attendees including Everett residents, regional visitors, and friends of Everett.

One of the day’s highlights was the raffle, which offered exciting bike-related prizes such as bike lights, locks, and helmets. Attendees eagerly participated, hoping to win these valuable items that promote safe and sustainable biking.

In addition to these engaging activities, the event featured a demonstration on how to rack a bike to a bus, providing practical knowledge for integrating biking with public transportation. The bike parade was another crowd favorite, with participants of all ages proudly showcasing their decorated bikes and riding together in a joyful display of community spirit.

The Everett Transportation Fair was not just about fun and games; it was a platform for education and advocacy, with dozens of organizations and community groups exhibiting. They focused on the intersections of individual, community, and environmental health, and transportation, reflecting  a collective effort to promote healthier and greener transportation options in Everett and beyond.
