Summer is here and so are the events! Check out one of our favorite upcoming Illinois motorcycle events below!
Motoblot Motorcycle and Hot Rod Rally
One of the fastest growing motorcycle events in the Chicago area, Motoblot Motorcycle and Hot Rod Rally encompasses all things gasoline and vintage powered. The event kicks off Friday night with a pre-party pig roast, burlesque show and live music at the Cobra Lounge Stage off of Ashland Avenue.
On Saturday, the bikes and hot rods (and mopeds!) start rolling in! This “ride in” show (presented by Motorcycle Classics Magazine) encompasses 16 categories that feature everything from vintage BSAs to custom mopeds and race-ready hot rods. The annual “Miss Motoblot” pinup contest is held every year on the main stage, which is also host to fantastic bands like Krank Daddies, The Creepshow and School of Rock.
The party continues on Sunday with great food, drinks and vendors to cruise throughout the day. Shop closes on the event around dusk Sunday, but you can check out fantastic photos from the “Photoblot” ride-in photo booth afterward!
Watch a brief overview from Motoblot coordinator Larry Fletcher, and join us THIS weekend at Motoblot!
