Travel By Train And Laugh For Free

The Southwest Chief rail line (and its passenger train predecessors) have been an integral resource to communities throughout the Southwestern United States for well over a century. However, due to declining ridership it is getting harder and harder for companies like Amtrak to justify the cost of maintaining the tracks. Our goal at the Southwest Chief Bicycle & Comedy Festival is to encourage people of all ages to ride the rails and remember that your travel doesn’t just have to take you on your next holiday or adventure, it can be a big part of it!

That’s why the Southwest Chief Bicycle & Comedy Festival is offering FREE 3-Day Passes to any individuals who…

  1. Travel to Trinidad, Colorado Wednesday May 1 - Sunday May 4, 2019 via Amtrak’s Southwest Chief passenger train line

  2. Book local lodging or campsites

  3. RSVP for the Southwest Chief Bicycle & Comedy Festival happening May 2-5 in venues throughout downtown Trinidad!
