Fire up your motorcycle - it's time for Americade!

This "Open Air Americade" will have lots of social distancing opportunities at the Expo, as the venue is outside. The first hour of the Expo (9am-10am) will be "masks required." This will give people who'd like to wear masks time to walk around with other people who'll be wearing masks. The rest of the day, at the Expo, masks will not be required (10am-6pm). All of the entertain has been moved to "Open Air" venues. All of the locations will either be outside, or in a ventilated area. Click the link for the full safety message: https://fb.watch/84Al01Yqpq/​ 

Americade is a massive gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts and their bikes on the shores of beautiful Lake George.

It doesn’t matter what you ride. Harleys, Indians, BMWs, Hondas, and every other brand of motorcycle is welcomed and represented at Americade. Join thousands of fellow riders on some of the best motorcycle rides in New York. Cruise the Adirondacks with new friends and old pals. Walk the huge trade expo, jam to live music, attend Americade University, and explore the restaurants, shops, and attractions of Lake George Village. If you love motorcycles you have to ride to the Americade motorcycle rally.

A true rider's rally, Americade marks the beginning of the riding season and offers self-guided rides through picturesque historic communities

The sprawling Americade Expo offers over one million square feet of motorcycle products, gear, and vendors. This year we will be regulating/limiting the headcount throughout the day to allow substantial social distancing.
