For more than ten years, tens of thousands of bikers from across the country have descended upon Las Vegas for the city’s annual BikeFest, a national motorcycle and biker rally that is held every fall. The four-day rally is one of the nation’s largest exhibitions of biker culture, and it includes a variety of competitions, shows, demonstrations and exhibits.
One of the highlights of the event is the Artistry in Iron, Master Builders’ Championship, an invitation-only, peer-judged competition that showcases innovative master bike builders. Other events, which are open to all attendees, include the Custom Bike Show, a Harley Davidson Cafe Hog Out competition, demo rides, poker runs with prize money, autograph signing sessions and live music. A stunt show showcases freestyle riders and half pipes.
The Las Vegas BikeFest is held at the Cashman Center, and entry to the vendors exhibition and events is relatively inexpensive. As always, the real cost of traveling to Las Vegas during a major convention is the hotel room. In order to save money on bookings, travelers should always look for deals to Las Vegas and check for vacation packages or discounts and coupons that can be redeemed during travel for a less expensive stay.
