On April 19, 1943, Albert Hofmann, a chemist for Sandoz, in Basel, Switzerland, ingested a minute amount—just 250 micrograms--of a compound derived from the ergot fungus. He soon felt so disoriented that he rode his bicycle home, where he experienced all the heavenly and hellish effects of lysergic acid diethylamide. Hoffman experienced a number of remarkable sensations and alterations of his state of consciousness, leading him to further investigate what would become one of the most popular psychedelic substances in history. Bicycle day commemorates the first intentional consumption of LSD known to humankind, and provides an account of a wild, psychedelic journey that resulted in a revolution.

Join us for a night of celebration with local psychedelic-inspired artists coming together to showcase their work, and participate in a panel discussion on the effects of psychedelics on creativity. Come join like-minded people for food, drink, art, and good conversation.
