You can look forward to 10 different competition disciplines as well as the silver World Cup in mountain biking in the discipline of slopestyle. You'll be able to test more than 200 test bikes from dozens of bicycle brands and walk through a rich exhibition zone. Friday and Saturday nights will belong to great music.

Birell BikeFest is held in Freeride Bikepark Kalnica. It is located six kilometers from Nove Mesto nad Vahom and 25 kilometers from Trencin. The journey by car from Bratislava or Zilina takes one hour on the D1 highway. From Brno, it takes 1.5 hours, from Banska Bystrica two hours. From the highway, you need to turn off at the Beckov exit and then just follow the signs to the Birell BikeFest.

Freeride Bikepark Kalnica attracts visitors from Slovakia and more and more often it is also visited by bikers from abroad. Bikers like it not only because of its location but also because of the number of tracks and obstacles, which are growing every year. Trails that you definitely won't find in Slovakia and the surrounding area - such as dual pumptrack, dual slalom, or the largest slopestyle track in Eastern Europe make Kalnica Bikepark an ideal location for a unique bike festival.

Transport & parking

Are you coming by car?
The navigation will reliably guide you to the Freeride Bikepark Kalnica. The festival venue is located six kilometers from Nove Mesto nad Vahom and 25 kilometers from Trencin. From the highway, you need to turn off at the Beckov exit and then just follow the signs to the Birell BikeFest. When you arrive, follow the instructions of the staff who will direct you to the parking lot. From the car park, you'll arrive at Birell BikeFest in several ways: either by free shuttle bus or by your bike, or by foot.

Are you coming by public transport?
We recommend that you arrive in Nove Mesto nad Vahom (by bus/train), where the shuttle service departs at regular intervals.

Shuttle service: 
The free shuttle service, provided by the Trenciansky samospravny kraj, starts at the parking lot in front of the railway station in Nove Mesto nad Vahom. It departs at regular intervals in the direction of Kalnica and also stops at P+R lots. The journey takes around 15 minutes. The bus turns around at the final stop in the village of Kalnica and the festival is approximately 500 meters away. 

Parking close to bike park:
Parking in the parking lot at the Freeride Bikepark Kalnica is FREE again this year for all bikers with bikes. Visitors and spectators without bicycles are recommended to use the shuttle service from Nove Mesto nad Vahom or from the P+R lots.


This is the easiest and cheapest accommodation option during the Birell BikeFest. It is FREE and the tent city is located close to the festival grounds. You can park your RV in the tent city, but camping spaces on level ground are limited. We recommend you arrive as early as possible. Booking is not possible. There is no electricity or water connection at the festival campsite. However, there is a storage room on-site during the festival, along with chargers and freely accessible showers and toilets 24/7.

They are located on the festival grounds and are available 24 hours a day. They are cleaned and emptied regularly, but we ask you to keep them tidy. Please note: the water in the showers is not drinkable.

Kärcher washing zone:
Kärcher has been looking after the cleanliness of your bikes for years. After all, it's not only your body that needs to be kept clean but also your bike. So you can treat it to free, high-quality care after a hard day.

It is our priority. The security service takes care of the safety of visitors during the whole festival. In addition to protecting visitors, they guard the festival premises and, together with the organizers, ensure the smooth running of the event.
