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 beautiful setting of Colonial Beach - Virginia's "Potomac River Playground"

Bikefest Beginnings

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.

Here are recaps of the 1st Annual in 2014

the 2nd Annual in 2015 

the 3rd Annual in 2016 

and the 4th Annual in 2017
