‘Harley-Davidson of Erie Bikefest’ to Host Ozzy (Sorta) & Badass Bikes!
Guests can also enter to win a free bike at the Pennsylvania event, happening July 14-22 & capped off with a ‘Red, White & Chrome Parade.’
Back by popular demand, Ozzy Osbourne tribute band The Land of Ozz returns for the 6th Annual Harley-Davidson of Erie Bikefest happening July 14 to 22. Taking the festival stage July 21 at 8 p.m., the heavy metal group touts itself as being “the closest thing to Ozzy Osbourne in his prime years that you will see and hear anywhere in the world.” Sure, that alone is enough to get us there. But, there’s also gonna be plenty of eye candy in the form of classic and contemporary Harley-Davidson motorcycles.
Located at the Harley-Davidson of Erie dealership in Erie, Pennsylvania, the week-long Harley-Davidson of Erie Bikefest is free to attend whether you own a Harley or not. The event’s Harley bike raffle is also free to enter. However, the public is encouraged to listen to local radio station Z102.3 for more details on how to win. The winning ticket will be announced July 20 at the festival.
Other activities during the Harley-Davidson of Erie Bikefest include the “Hogs & Rods” car and bike night on July 16, the “United By Independents” ride on July 17, a bike night on July 18, a “Bikini Bike Wash” on July 20 and 21, and both a tattoo contest and bike show on July 21. Rides throughout the scenic countryside of northwest Pennsylvania, western New York, and eastern Ohio will also be occurring at the bike fest, as well as a swap meet, charity runs, and the “Red, White & Chrome Parade.”
In addition to The Land of Ozz, 11 more bands will be performing at the festival, including biker band Sourmash, which won the 2017 Pittsburgh City Paper‘s “Face The Music” People’s Choice Award. They will be headlining the bikefest on July 20.
While at Erie Bikefest, guests will also want to check out Vendor Village, featuring several national and regional retailers selling motorcycle apparel, gear, and parts and accessories, including leather jackets and t-shirts, plus pinstriping and lighting for your bike. Food vendors (including Odis 12 Bar & Grille) will be on site during the Harley-Davidson of Erie Bikefest, serving up tasty fare, and plenty of cold beer will be available — Miller Lite is co-presenter of the festival.
