Uncle Kracker to headline the Leesburg Bikefest!!
The 1st Annual Leesburg Bikefest took place in 1997 as a 1-day event with 4 vendors, canned beer, and a couple of local garage bands; with an estimated attendance of 5,000 motorcyclists. Since then, Bikefest has grown into a well-known event that hosts more than 300,000 attendees each year.
In order to meet the demands of Bikefest attendees, the event has grown from a 1-day event to a 3-day event and expanded to 20+ blocks in Downtown Leesburg and the Gator Harley Davidson location. Bikefest utilizes just about every square inch of outdoor space available in the downtown area, and also rents out buildings like the Opera House, Palace Theater, and the Leesburg Center for the Arts, transforming them into night clubs where the event can continue long after the outdoor venues have closed.
Although Bikefest started with a handful of local garage bands, Bikefest attendees have been entertained by some legendary “musical greats” such as Foghat, Leon Russell, Great White, Quiet Riot, and Confederate Railroad, just to name a few.
TIME TO ADD UNCLE KRACKER TO THAT LIST!
