The Obtainium Cup Contraptor’s Rally is a human-powered sculptural vehicle rally and festival on historic Mare Island in Vallejo. This a one-day event that highlights the waterfront of Mare Island.
The racers will assemble at the Coal Shed Studios and will travel along the waterfront where they will pass 4 challenges: Flying Monkeys, Zombies, the Mad Hatter Tea Party, and Robots.
As this event is a human-powered rally, it will include vehicles that are powered without a motor. This may include heavily modified bicycles, art sculptures driven under rider power… any “vehicle” that is powered solely by its rider! Spectators are encouraged to travel along with the rally by bike or car, to watch the different challenges events.
Beyond the finish line, there will be food, refreshments, entertainment and steampunk vendors. Non-alcoholic beverages will be available at several of the challenges. This is a FREE family event, fun for all ages and dog-friendly.
All proceeds go to Vallejo’s Jesse Bethel High Green Academy, a program for eco-oriented students who love the outdoors and want to do their part to protect the environment.
