October 11 - 14

Bands: Buckcherry, Longreef, Artimus Pyle Band

Lodging Options

Schedule       Vendors        Merchandise  



It is back for the fifth year in a row! Taking place a week later than usual, this one promises to be bigger and better than the first four!

Come enjoy free concerts on Town Hill, vendors, bikini competition, bike shows and more in the picturesque setting of Colonial Beach - Virginia's "Potomac River Playground"

All American Harley-Davidson were one of the main sponsors. They along with Ripley formerly from 97.7 The Rocket radio station had discussed the idea in 2013 while dining at High Tides Restaurant, and I'm so glad they did! I can't wait for this event to return!

Our area has been and continues to be a favorite destination for bikers, with the beaches, historical sites, great waterfront dining spots, tiki bars with live music, boating and fishing activities and many lodging options. Visitors can enjoy a fun stay in our historic riverside resort town.

We even used to be home to The Broken Chain motorcycle shop.
