This year marks the second annual Rockers, Riders & Ribs event in Longview, Texas, and the promoter promises, “the biggest party East Texas has ever seen!” 

The event, Oct. 20-21, is promoted by the Longview News-Journal, the major newspaper in Longview. Talk about positive press for motorcycling. Bravo!

Longview is in the Piney Woods region of East Texas, and the event offers access to some good local riding—including two scheduled runs. Rockers, Riders & Ribs is situated in downtown Longview, covering about eight city blocks. You can park your motorcycle and walk to the featured events.

An ample selection of hotels and restaurants are available in town, and the Rockers, Riders & Ribs website hosts a convenient resource section offering some nice discounts. Texas folks know how to offer old-time southern hospitality, and the city of Longview welcomes you to come experience that firsthand. 

For a two-day event, there is an impressive schedule of music and entertainment, including:

  • Roughneck Harley-Davidson kick-off party
  • Globe of Death Show
  • Rockin’ the Ribs Barbecue cook-off 
  • Live music featuring:
    • Foghat
    • Kentucky Headhunters
    • Edgar Winter Band
    • The Drugstore Gypsies
    • Plus, many local and regional bands
