Orchard Place Moonlight Classic - July 13, 2024

Bike at night to bring light to children's mental health needs

Cruise the streets of downtown Des Moines and nearby trails with family and friends while raising awareness for children's mental health and much-needed funds for programs at Orchard Place. This one-of-a-kind nighttime bike ride takes you through the streets of Des Moines soaking in the captivating sights of downtown, the Iowa State Capitol and the river at night.

There are several different food and drink options at the Iowa Taproom. Arrive at 7:30 pm to enter in the contests or register onsite. Join us at 8:30 pm for the festivities and to prepare to head out on the ride at 9:30 pm. Note: In keeping with Iowa law, you do have to be 21 to be in a bar after 9 p.m.
