An event featuring motorcycles and music—and an American classic

Added October 2, 2018
Corvette

Many of us who love to ride motorcycles also have a soft spot in our hearts for iconic cars. Among American sports cars, the Corvette stands out in the crowd. In fact, you could easily compare Vettes to a motorcycle—each is always a two-seater, with the motor serving as the heartbeat of the experience.

A first-year production

Featuring the two is where the inaugural Vette City Motorcycle Music Fest comes in. The Bowling Green Daily News and radio station WDNS-D93 are joining forces to create this new motorcycle rally. The goal is to bring together motorcycle riders and classic car and truck fans for fun, music, and camaraderie. Just like first-year production Vettes are prized, the memories of this first event will surely be special.

The event’s planned as a family-friendly celebration representing all of the communities around southern Kentucky. For their first outing, they’ve arranged an impressive lineup of events, venues, and music, including:

  • Vette City Motorcycle Music Fest kickoff party
  • Vette City Motorcycle Music Fest after-parties
  • The National Corvette Museum
  • Custom bike show
  • Custom car and truck show
