The famous Sturgis Motorcycle Rally celebrates its 70th anniversary this year and runs August 9th through the 15th. Officials estimate that 442,163 attended last years rally.

The web offers information and resources about Sturgis if you plan to drive out to this year’s rally, or just want to know more about its history.


A good first stop is the official site for the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, featuring details on events, locations, and lodging information. The official site also features a calendar of events.

A timeline and history link has details the first Sturgis rally in 1938, called the Black Hills Classic back then, and featured a race with nine participants.

The Sturgis Motorcycle Rally has been held every year since then, with a break during World War II because of gas rationing, and evolved into its present seven day event in 1975.


There is more about the history of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally at Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame. The museum is open year round to visitors and offers a collection of vintage motorcycles on display.

While Sturgis does have a reputation for rowdiness, all participants are expected to observe local motorcycle safety laws. Sturgis.com has a list of laws motorcycle riders must obey, such as helmet and headlamp requirements. There’s even a list of penalties and fines if you wind up on the wrong side of the law.

For some Sturgis Motorcycle Rally attendees, the ultimate motorcycle event is also the perfect time for matrimony. There were 72 marriages performed at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally last year. If you want to get married at the rally, Sturgis.com offers a list of requirements and resources.

Just a great day to all motorcyclists! As such events are often organized in a big figure hence the arrangement need to be highly safety. A small accident can be harmful for the audience. However, here it has been performed well and I really appreciate the arrangement team's work. For similar big events, you nice to hire an Event management company to perform all your works by themselves. Private Event Rentals Boston.
