Lake George Americade Motorcycle Rally 2018

This year's Americade runs from June 4 - 9, 2018!

motorcycles at americadeSince 1983, the scenic Lake George area has hosted Americade, the world's largest multi-brand motorcycle touring rally. Americade draws over 50,000 riders and passengers each year for a week of events, exhibits and vendors.

Besides a picturesque background, laid-back atmosphere, and winding roads for motorcycling, the Lake George area offers many restaurants, shopping spots and attractions, making it a perfect location for Americade.

Though some locals may complain about the ruckus of thousands of motorcycles thundering through the streets during this week-long motorcycle touring rally, there is nothing quite like it, and no doubt about it, Americade is one of the most popular annual events in the Northeast!

Each year a highlight of Americade week is the Americade Expo, which takes place at Million Dollar Beach. The expo features hundreds of vendors from all over the world. Motorcyclists can expect to preview anything and everything from the best riding gear to the latest motorcycle accessories and gadgets.
