Ride Like An Egyptian 2020 Canceled

The Egyptian Theatre in Downtown DeKalb is sad to announce that they are cancelling the August 15th Ride Like an Egyptian bike ride event due to COVID-19.

The bike ride, which has been held by the Theatre for over ten years, has been an annual fundraiser for the non-profit with hundreds of riders participating each year. The Egyptian is disappointed to cancel the ride, but felt the safety of the riders was of the upmost concern.

Anyone wishing to donate to the Theatre and to keep up to date on the latest information regarding all Egyptian Theatre events can visit their website at www.egyptiantheatre.org.

The Egyptian Theatre located at 135 N. 2nd Street in Downtown DeKalb, IL is owned and operated by Preservation of Egyptian Theatre, Inc. a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization.  Annual support provided by First National Bank, Northwestern Medicine, Shaw Media, and Tapa La Luna.
