Daventry Motorcycle Festival Is Revving Up For Its Return

Daventry Motorcycle Festival Is Revving Up For Its Return

After a 2-year hiatus, on Saturday 11th June 2022, Daventry Motorcycle Festival will return to Daventry Town Centre, with a variety of motorcycles, spanning the eras to thrill people of all ages.

The festival is organised by a group of volunteers, in partnership with several local stakeholders, including Juice Sound and Lighting, Daventry Town Council and West Northants Council.

As well as featuring the traditional 'Show and Shine' competition, which this year will include scooters, there will also be a display of vintage, classic, modern, and customised motorcycles, a bike stunt show, fairground, street entertainment and dancers, live music, a variety of exhibitors and caterers, plus various free activities for children and families to get involved with.

This year will also see the return of the legendary ride-in with motorbikes arriving onto the High Street. It is recommended that spectators arrive for 9.45am to view the grand parade of motorcycles in preparation for the festivals official opening at 10am.

Cllr Karen Tweedale, Mayor of Daventry and Chair of Council, said, "It is great to have Daventry Motorcycle Festival back, as it has been sorely missed from the town's schedule of events. It is an immensely popular event with Town residents and attracts many visitors from out of town too. The organisers are working tirelessly behind the scenes to ensure this year is a great success with a variety of entertainment for all the family to enjoy. I've always had a fantastic time at this event and have no doubt that this year's festival will be the best yet!"

Also at the event, Daventry Town Council in Partnership with Northamptonshire Police are offering a FREE Bike Marking Service. Bike Marking is an individual stamp that is placed on your personal bike to help identify who it belongs to, so that it can be easily identified if found after being lost or stolen.

Daventry Motorcycle Festival will take place in Daventry Town Centre on Saturday 11th June 2022 from 10am – 4pm. Entry is free to visitors.
