Even if a single drop of rain doesn't drop this beautiful Labor Day Weekend, Ocean Drive will thunder with the rumble of a thousand engines.
South Beach Bike Week is here again! And that means a one of a kind "Biker Village" on Ocean Drive between 8th and 10th streets. And the best part of all, it's free!
You can expect bands, DJs, awesome motorcycles, and more contests than you can throw a string of beads at. With that in mind, here's the full schedule for the fest.
6 p.m. to midnight "Kick-Off Party" at The Clevelander: Complimentary motorcycle parking, bike show registration, drink specials, and live music. All access passes cost $25 per person and include discounts on food and drinks at participating South Beach spots.
Saturday, August 30
9 a.m. to 10 a.m.: The "Best Custom Bike" Registration at the "Biker Village" (9th Street and Ocean Drive) is followed by the 10 a.m. "Rally Ride to South Beach" at Rick Case Powerhouse, which costs $25 per bike. Fee includes participating in the Rally Ride, a slice of pizza, and a complimentary all access pass. Rally Ride fees benefit the Sabrina Cohen Foundation Reserach for Stem Cells. Events throughout the rest of the day include Biker Village, with vendors, motorcycle shows, displays, and music by DJ Felix Sama; a performance by classic rock inspired Ovrhol Band; and body painting.
By 3 p.m., another classic rock group, The Regs, will take the stage, followed by the Ms. South Beach Bike Week competition, the Best Custom Bike awards ceremony, and raffle giveaways.
Sunday, August 31
11 a.m.: If body paint wasn't enough for you, Sunday at Bike Fest brings sexy back with a 2 p.m. bikini contest and a 5:30 p.m. best tattoo competition.
Though Biker Village closes each night at 7, attendees will receive "Biker Village" wristbands to continue the party at participating bars and clubs. To register for any South Beach Bike Week contests or showings, visit southbeachbikeweek.com.
