Thursday – Sunday, October 17 – 20, 2019 at Daytona Regional Chamber of Commerce
The 27th Anniversary of Biketoberfest in Daytona Beach will take place from Friday to Sunday, October 17 to 20, 2019.
This popular weekend for motorcycle enthusiasts includes a multitude of motorcycle events like shows and rallies, live music, scenic rides along A1A, and other historic Florida roadways. Guests can also enjoy racing at Daytona International Speedway or browse the wares of vendors offering everything from the latest models to parts, accessories, and apparel. Shoppers can also head over to Daytona Harley-Davidson—the world's largest Harley-Davidson dealership.
Biketoberfest was established 25 years ago by the Daytona Beach Area Convention and Visitors Bureau. The event is traditionally held the weekend immediately following Columbus Day with most bike vacationers staying throughout the entire week. The event features a 12-mile ride along a series of scenic state and county highways in Volusia County known as the Ormond Scenic Loop and Trail. Other popular rides include up and down Main Street and Beach Street in Daytona, through various state parks such as Tomoka State Park and DeLeon Springs State Park, and to the historic Ponce de Leon Inlet Lighthouse, located just south of Daytona Beach in Ponce Inlet. Visitors can participate or watch multiple motorcycle races and demos on the high banks of the newly repaved Daytona International Speedway.
Biketoberfest boasts an abundant nightlife scene. There are bars on Main Street like Froggy's, Dirty Harry's, Main Street Station and the Boot Hill Saloon offering food and drinks, as well as live entertainment and giveaways. This is one of the most popular events in the country for motorcycle enthusiasts (second only, perhaps, to Bike Week in Daytona in the spring).
Those who want to enjoy Biketoberfest festivities while exploring the surrounding areas of Florida can choose to stay in St. Augustine, Florida. St. Augustine Florida is a bike-friendly community with history, attractions, award-winning restaurants and bars, and comfortable places to stay. Every year, thousands of bikers choose to stay in St. Augustine for the Biketoberfest weekend, with plenty of places to shop and ride around town. Visitors can cruise over the Bridge of Lions or the Vilano Bridge, ride through the ancient streets of the nation's oldest city, or take in the ocean breeze on Scenic A1A at St. Augustine Beach. The city sets aside metered lanes for bikers all around the plaza, so there's plenty of space to park a bike while strolling around town and down St. George Street.
