Havering Bikewise will be held on Sunday 6 March at Hornchurch Country Park. As well as a range of exhibitors, with bikes and cycle equipment for sale, there will be led cycle rides, a performance by stunt cyclists the MAD BMX Display Team and a cycle polo tournament.
The free family event aims to encourage more people to cycle and will be the perfect opportunity to get advice and assistance on getting started.
Activities for children will include a bungee trampoline, face painting, balloon modelling and bouncy castle.
More experienced cyclists can take part in virtual races and there will also be a cycle polo tournament. In the tournament teams of three cyclists play polo on their bikes, and there will be a trophy for the winning team.
Councillor Barry Tebbutt, Cabinet Member for the Environment, said: "Cycling is a great way to get around, as well having benefits for our health and wallets.
"With a new cycling greenway under construction in the borough, there has never been a better time to get in the saddle. From children to adults, experienced and novice cyclists, this event is aimed at everyone and I hope lots of people will come along to find out more."

Ingrebourne Way is a 13-mile long walking and cycling route which will run from Dagnam Park to the riverside in Rainham. Phase one of the project is due to be completed this spring and the rest of the project should be finished by 2013.
Havering was one of 13 London boroughs announced by the Mayor as Biking Boroughs last year. All are tasked with encouraging more residents to cycle, and received funding from TfL to support initiatives aimed at achieving this.
Entry to Havering Bikewise will be from the Airfield Way/Squadrons Approach entrance to the country park.
