“We’re packing a ton of motorcycle fun into four days,” says GBW event coordinator Kelly Shue. “We’ve got everything regulars have come to expect from Gettysburg Bike Week, plus a few surprises.”
This is Gettysburg Bike Week’s 15th anniversary, and this year’s entertainment slate boasts a stellar line-up of top-flight musical and entertainment acts. Legendary emcee Jack Schitt will once again perform master of ceremonies duties throughout the week on the Budweiser Stage, Gin Gypsies will be slinging the drinks and this year features musical performances by Quiet Riot, Kix, Mustang Sally and The Marshall Tucker Band–and those are just the headliners.
GBW will rock all weekend long with A-list regional acts as well, including Blizzard of Ozzy (the country’s premier Ozzy Ozbourne and Black Sabbath cover band), Big Jack (AC/DC tribute band featuring young drumming phenom Avery Molek), Whiskey Burn and Joy Ride, among many others. Expect performances by the International Bikini Team as well, plus bike builders battling for the Biker Build-Off Championship, heavy competition in the Cycle Source Ride-In Bike Show and the Parade of Chrome and, of course, the GBW wet T-shirt contest! Not to mention Torch’s Rock & Roll Inferno Fire Performer! Fun, fun, fun! Check here for a full events schedule.
And, of course, no rally would be complete without great riding, and Gettysburg has some of the best. Whether riders want to see historic battlegrounds or just hit the road for a great cruise, hundreds of miles of the best riding in the East surrounds Gettysburg. In addition to fantastic solo riding, GBW also features awesome group rides and the Pink Journey of Lights and Stars of Hope Charity Rides.
