The Vintage Road Races Association's 3 day "Summer Classic" race events are at the Grand Bend Motorplex location, July 8th-9th-10th ( endurance races on Friday afternoon)

All About The Grand Bend’s Vintage Bike Festival:
We'll be bringing the sights and sounds of a Vintage and Classic Motorcycle Rally to the South-Western Ontario party town of Grand Bend.

This years annual "Show & Shine" event will again be held in Grand Bend and takes place on Sunday July 10, 2016, from 11.00am. until around 1pm, right on Grand Bend's Main Street at the Growling Gator Restaurant parking lot at the very end of Main street. The restaurant will be open early just for us for your morning coffee, Brunch or Lunch.

This year we are adding live entertainment “Rocking at the Gator” with a 7pc. Rock & Roll band, Jacob and the Bluesbusters plus The TroubleMakers Rockabilly Band, Sponsored by Hully Gully, they will be rocking out the blues from 11.00 until around 1pm.

There will be a large banner at the parking lot entrance
indicating where we will be.
Vintage or classic bikes on display inside the parking area
should be 25 years or older.(1990 or older)
At 1.00 pm. we will announce the "People's Choice Award" winner. It includes a nice little plaque, a Growling Gator Gift Certificate and the bike will be featured on the 2017 Festival Poster.
At 1.15 pm. we will assemble for the group ride (parade?)
to the Motorplex Racetrack.

Again this year, there is no registration fee, no official judging but there will be a "Peoples Choice Award", no vendors, it's NOT a swap-meet and YES, there will be a group ride at 1.15, from Main Street to the Grand Bend MOTORPLEX Raceway to enjoy the Vintage Road Racing Associations exciting afternoon race program. ENTREE TO THE TRACK and pit areas IS FREE to all in the group (parade) ride.

Vintage related club and group displays are encouraged
and free space will be available.

Just turn up and show off your Vintage & Classic scooters and motorcycles. Because of limited space in the parking lot, only Vintage and Classic bikes owners will be able to park there. Riders of all makes and models of bikes though are most welcome to come by and drop in to check it all out and it's all FREE !
