The Top 10 Wildest Biker Rallies in the United States
Everyone knows the big biker rallies. Daytona, Sturgis, Laconia, Myrtle Beach. Hundreds of thousands of bikers load up their bikes (or trailers, RVs, trucks, etc.) and head to these destinations each year. They'll fight traffic, long lines at restaurants, high hotel or camping costs, jacked up beer prices, and sometimes even local government not even wanting them there, in order to spend a week hanging with friends, taking pictures and hopefully, bringing home some good stories to tell.
Then there are the smaller rallies.
These are lesser known events which take in pastures, campgrounds, even old airports, all across the country, where 3,000 to 5,000 bikers get together with one purpose... partying. These are the kinds of parties where you bring a chase truck just because you can't fit enough beer on your bike. Where you bring a camera just so you can piece together what the hell went on there when you get home. Where "Wet T-shirt" contests turn into "What T-Shirt?" contests. If you've been to some of these wondrous events, you know what I mean. We've done our research, and here is the Bars4bikers.com list of the Top 10 Biker Rallies in the United States. If your favorite party isn't on this list, you might want to check one of these out.
#10. Too Broke For Sturgis -
Held the week before Sturgis each year (This year's event date hasn't been announced). Held by ABATE of Arizona, Too Broke for Sturgis is held at the Mormon Lake Lodge Campground and Arena. The area offers shade, camping with hot showers available, first-class biker entertainment, an assortment of vendors and awesome scenery. They've got bike games, a poker walk, the Miss Too Broke contest and a wet T-shirt contest.
#9. The Black River Rumble - Black River Falls, WI
Located on 115 acres near the Ohio River in Southern Illinois, HogRock River Rally is held the second full weekend in June (This year's is June 10th to 13th). Hogrock features live music, WILD contests, vendors, bike games, camping and more.
#7. Milledgeville Thuder Rally - Milledgeville, GA
Held on the 3rd weekend of July (This year's is July 15th-18th), the ABATE of Indiana Bean Blossom Boogie is one of the top bike fests in the Midwest. Activities include an arm wrestling contest, swap meet, ride-in bike show, contests and live entertainment (Eddie Money and Asia are playing this year). Don't let the tame ABATE website fool you. This is a wild time.
#4. Party In The Pasture - Brooksville, FL
Held several times a year (The next official one is March 11th-14th), the Bama Bike Fest is (in our opinion) the premier biker rally in the United States. With daily wet t-shirt contests, biker games for singles and couples, bike shows, crazy contests (Topless Hula Hoops), lots of live entertainment, vendors and no extra fees for vehicles, it's 3 days of wildness that you won't believe. They even have a bar onsite in case you run low. Check out Bama Bikefest in March, July or October. You'll have stories to tell about it for years!
Honorable Mentions go to Bainbridge Bike Fest in Bainbridge, GA, Little Sturgis Rally in Sturgis, KY, Rally of Texas (ROT) in Austin, TX and the Memorial Day Biker Party in Sandy Hook, MS
