September 21 - 24, 2023
From the event organizers:
ATTENTION!! Due to a conflict with the Montross Fall Festival, our Colonial Beach Police Chief has stated he cannot rely on the full support of the Sheriff’s Office to help cover our 9th Annual Colonial Beach Bike Fest event. Therefore, he has declined our original Bike Fest Special Event application for Oct. 5-8th. We understand plans for accommodations have already been made by some of the attendees and wanted to get this change to you as soon as possible. The new dates for Bike Festival will be September 21st – 24th. We feel this change of dates will also help our vendors with an easier, unruffled flow of events. Vendors can now leave Ocean City, travel to Colonial Beach, on to Myrtle Beach, and make their final stop in Daytona. This will eliminate a lot of travel time for them and hopefully encourage their attendance. Thank you.
It is back for the ninth year in a row! With internationally acclaimed bands and special guest appearances, this one promises to be bigger and better than the first eight!
Come enjoy concerts on Town Hill, vendors, bike shows and more in the beautiful setting of Colonial Beach - Virginia's "Potomac River Playground"

FREE PARKING for all motorcycles at the Riverboat on the Potomac right next to Town Hill (Bikes Only - On The Grass Only)
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!
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 picturesque riverside resort town.
We even used to be home to The Broken Chain motorcycle shop.
