Arizona Bike Week celebrates its 20th anniversary

By Press release

What started as a small gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts two decades ago has grown into one of the biggest rallies in the country.  April 6–10, Arizona Bike Week will be celebrating its 20th anniversary at WestWorld in Scottsdale, AZ.  This 360-acre park has been home to Arizona Bike Week for 15 of its 20 rallies.  With massive RV camping accommodations and a wide variety of event spaces, WestWorld offers the flexibility needed to absorb the tremendous growth this festival has seen each year.  The newest area of WestWorld being incorporated into the footprint is the Tony Nelssen Equestrian Center. The North Hall of the TNEC will house the Legends Classic and Vintage Motorcycle Auction and in the Equidome the exciting sport of Flat Track Racing will join the extensive list of activities at the rally.

This year, there will be double-header concerts in the on-site concert venue the RockYard and the lineup is pretty impressive:

Wednesday, April 6—Blackberry Smoke and Joan Jett and the Blackhearts
Thursday, April 7—Warrant and Blues Traveler
Friday, April 8—Reverend Horton Heat and Social Distortion.
Saturday, April 9—Ratt and Buckcherry

There are daily charity rides during ABW which benefit a variety of great causes.  Riders who participate in these will all receive an admission pass, so they can enjoy the day’s events at WestWorld at the end of the ride.

Even those arriving on four wheels are guaranteed a great time with the friendly, fun-loving biker crowd.

Purchase a 5-day admission pass and you can see all of the concerts, auction, flat track racing, extreme stunt shows, bike shows, contests, demos, exhibitions, and hundreds of vendors. If you’re looking for a little less commitment, single day passes are also available.  Passes can be purchased online (with no ticketing or add on fees) or at the gate.
