The ninth annual Las Vegas Bike fest is scheduled for Oct 1st through Oct 4 2009.
Over 40,000 motorcyclists are expected to descend on Sin City for the four day international event. The bike fest features a $100,000 Poker Run, a custom bike show, Miss and Mr. Las Vegas Bike Fest as well as vendor displays and entertainment.
The Artistry in Iron Master Builders Championship event showcases 25 of the most unique and beautiful custom bikes around. You can meet your favorite bike builders during the autograph sessions Friday and Saturday from noon until 2pm and a second session from 3 – 5pm.
Last year there were over 30,000 bikers in attendance, the expectation is that this year’s festival will top that amount.
The poker run is a 140 mile event that starts at the Sahara and will wind through the Valley of Fire State Park before heading back to the starting point.
There will also be no shortage of musical entertainment. Molly Hatchet will be appearing at the Sahara and the Johnny Cash tribute band, Cash’d Out will be performing at the Hard Rock.
Others that are scheduled to perform are: Randy Travis, Journey, and The Guess Who. AC/DC, who was scheduled to appear as part of their Black Ice World Tour, has had to postpone 6 of its dates, including the one scheduled for October 3rd at the MGM.
The Cashman Center’s Vendors Village will play host to over 250 vendors. There will be daily demo rides offered by Harley-Davidson showcasing their new 2010 models.
The bottom line is that Vegas is the place to be the first weekend in October. There is so much to do you’ll never be able to fit it all in…but think of the fun you’ll have trying!
