Motorrad Fest: Join us in September

Monday, April 20, 2020   (9 Comments)

MOA Executive Director Ted Moyer and MOA President Wes Fitzer are pleased to announce MOTORRAD FEST, a brand-new three-day festival style event open to MOA members, their guests, all motorcyclists and anybody else who wishes to attend.

Motorrad Fest will take place 25-27 September 2020 at the Peyton Road Camping Area of the Wilson County Fairgrounds in Lebanon, Tennessee. MOA members who attended the National Rally in 2019 will remember this as the RV area during the Lebanon Rally.

"Motorrad Fest is the weekend before the AIMExpo in Columbus, Ohio, and we expect many of our regular exhibitors will make a combined trip to both places," Moyer said*. "We are also looking at some local vendors to bring a bit of Tennessee flavor to Motorrad Fest."

Registration for Motorrad Fest will open in May. Passes for the entire weekend will cost $69; adding a camping pass adds $30 for a total of $99. Day passes will be available from $19. RV spaces will cost $349 and will include two tickets for the entire weekend. Full details will be available on the MOA website soon. Registration specials will be available for a limited time.

Fitzer added, "We want members to know we're thinking about them and trying to work through the situation. These are our friends and we're most concerned for their health and well-being. The virus has certainly changed things for us this year, but I'm proud we've been able to respond and think a little differently by shifting some events, creating a new destination event and placing members first in our refund policies and the options they have for the future."

NOTE: At the time this was written, AIMExpo was scheduled for early October 2020. AIMExpo has moved to late January 2021.

Registration and more information on Motorrad Fest will be available soon. Thank you for your patience.

I wonder if this has anything to do with the silence: "The MIC’s American International Motorcycle Expo (AIMExpo) is moving to January 21-23, 2021 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center in Columbus, Ohio. Previously scheduled for this October..."

My Opps! The RA Rally is the weekend before....it's the Vintage BMW East Coast Rally that is Sept. 25-27 in Harleysville, Pennsylvania. Lots of options that time of year to ride.

Well, this announcement doesn't say much. Exactly what can one expect to do at a "festival style event." ...besides pitch one's tent in an RV parking lot? Interested, but need a bit more of an outline. Thanks!

This would also be the weekend after the BMW Riders Association's National Rally in North Carolina. https://bmwra.org/national-rally-info/ Would be fun to combine both BMW events in the same area, especially those coming distances.- Bob Alexander #7892
