Celebrate 25th Biketoberfest October 19–22 at Daytona Beach

Chrome Anniversary features special giveaways


It’s time to prep and polish those bikes and make plans to head to Daytona Beach for the 25th Anniversary of Biketoberfest October 19-22, 2017. Organizers are expecting up to 125,000 riders and visitors from around the world to the four-day motorcycle rally.

“We have a core audience that’s been attending this event since the start,” said Lori Campbell Baker, executive director of the Daytona Beach Area Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB), “and it’s not uncommon to see Brazil, Canada, Germany, and the UK pinned on the maps. It’s amazing to see the international crowd this rally draws, as well as the increase in women riders and sportbikes over the years, and the youth drawn to the rally’s signature racing events at Daytona International Speedway.”
