July 2017 designated as citywide special event in celebration of the 2017 UCI BMX Championships!

Post Date:06/08/2017 2:19 PM

City Council voted to designate July 2017 as a citywide special event in celebration of the 2017 UCI BMX World Championships! The event hasn’t been held in the USA in 16 years, so we want to make this an epic return. From July 1-July 31, businesses will be permitted to place temporary signage, sized up to 32 square feet, promoting the event and welcoming BMX fans to Rock Hill.  All permits and fees will be waived. This is a unique opportunity for Rock Hill to be on the world stage, so let’s make it count.

Amateur and elite cyclists from more than 40 countries will compete, attracting an estimated 20,000 spectators over the course of the week. Visit rockhillSCbmx.com for event details, volunteer registration and ticket info.
