On Saturday July 30, 2016, more than 2,500 vintage motorcycle enthusiasts will gather on America’s Car Museum’s Haub Family Field for a unique event featuring hundreds of pre-1992 iconic motorcycles from storied brands including Harley-Davidson, BMW, Ducati, Triumph, Indian, Honda, Norton, Kawasaki, BSA and others. Virtually every brand in the history of motorcycling will be displayed by owners from across the United States and Canada.
Performances by members of the Seattle Cossacks Motorcycle Drill and Stunt Team will be part of the excitement. Other attractions will include food trucks, a beer garden, a used bikes-for-sale corral, free seminars and vendor booths.
Restoration and touring services will also be included to make this event a vintage motorcycle enthusiast’s dream come true. The festival will be open from 10 a.m.-4 p.m. on Saturday, July 30 and includes museum admission. On Sunday, July 31 a motorcycle ride for all bikes will leave from ACM's Anderson Plaza to enjoy the scenic back roads and rolling foothills between Tacoma and Mt. Rainier. The ride will be followed by a cookout on the Haub Family Field at ACM.
