The Show

Matt Wilhelm’s family fun show is designed to entertain, educate, and empower. He creatively mixes BMX bike tricks with his own inspiring stories of beating the odds en route to becoming a BMX National Champion.

In addition to his BMX skills, Matt will also covers the topics of perseverance, bike safety, and going to college. His message is delivered in a fun way that is easily digestible for kids.

Most important, the show will be awesome!!! Your audience will get to see live and in person the same tricks that have won X-Games Medals and National Championships.

Matt is a professional and has performed in front of many huge crowds. He has been the featured halftime entertainment at many NBA / NCAA basketball games, including the Chicago Bulls.

He has also performed at Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida as part of the highest rated live show in their history!!!

Fun for All Ages

Entertaining a 5-year-old and a teenager with the same performance is no easy task. Trying to get a message across to both age groups simultaneously can seem even more impossible.

Matt Wilhelm’s family fun show appeals to all ages. His skills will captivate your audience, while his message will get through to everyone regardless of age.

Finding entertainment for younger audiences is always easy, but finding something for older tween/teen audiences can be challenging. Matt has the “Cool Factor” to get the older kids to buy in. You might even be surprised by how many older kids turnout.

Countless libraries have said, “We’ve never had a turnout this high.” In 2015 The River Forest Public Library in Illinois was expecting a turnout of about 70 people. Instead, 370 showed up!!!

Matt’s performance will bring your community together, entertain them, and inspire them.

My kids were all just gushing about your performance and the messages you put forth that day. It is a huge pleasure to hear them repeat these wholesome themes as Cool.

Thank you so much for what you are doing, apparently you are meant for it. There aren't many individuals or programs that genuinely help me parent my kids. Suzanne - Parent (Received via Email)

Show Details

The show runs about 40-minutes in duration. Matt Wilhelm provides his own sound equipment, microphone, table, and everything necessary for a show.

The only requirements are access to electricity and at least 25×50 feet of performance space (hard, flat surface such as gymnasium, concrete, parking lot, or asphalt). Matt Wilhelm’s show is fully insured and carries a $2,000,000 general commercial liability policy.

Matt’s bike is safe for your gym floor. He has special non-marking tires and has performed halftime for the Chicago Bulls, Utah Jazz, Philadelphia 76ers, and many other NBA and NCAA teams. His bike meets their strict requirements for what they allow on the floors.

Shows can be performed inside or outside. If performing outside it is also possible to set a rain date in advance. When performing at libraries the parking lot usually works best, although it is becoming increasingly more common for libraries to partner with schools or park districts to hold the show inside gymnasiums.
