Bike Week in Daytona Beach

Daytona Beach has long been a haven for motorcycle enthusiasts, with the warm Florida weather and the sunshine serving as a fitting backdrop for a week-long, two-wheeled fun. At any one time, there are thousands of motorcycles prowling the streets of Daytona Beach and its surrounding areas, but when Bike Week comes around things get taken to a whole different level.


The famous Daytona Beach Bike Fest has a long and storied history, with the first one held in 1937. The first rally, even though it was thought to only attract just a few hundred motorcycles, was viewed as an instant success. The Daytona Beach Bike Fest took a break during the World War II years, as Americans focused on more important matters and fought to bring their country back from the brink. From 1942 to 1947, there was no motorcycle rally on the streets of Daytona Beach, but Bike Fest came roaring back once the war ended and we were once again in the mood to party.

Much has changed from the origins of The Daytona Beach Bike Fest. The bikes, bikers, and the area may have looked a bit different in the old days, but the spirit behind Daytona Beach Bike Fest remains the same even some eight decades later. The name was even changed to Daytona Beach Bike Week.

Present Day Bike Week

With hundreds of thousands of bikes and their owners coming into Daytona Beach for Bike Week, this 10-day motorcycle rally is one of the largest, and certainly one of the best attended rallies in the entire country. This annual event draws bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts from throughout the region and around the United States. It typically takes place in early March, right after The Daytona 500 and Daytona Speedweeks, so there is still time to make your plans and get your own bike ready for the action.

Still going strong after more than seven decades in existence, Daytona Beach Bike Week is bigger, badder, and louder than ever before. This famous bike rally features many events attendees will only find at Daytona Beach Bike Week, including Cabbage Patch Coleslaw wrestling. Festivities take place throughout the Daytona Beach area, but some of the biggest and best events are found along Main Street and on US1 in Ormond Beach. Aside from the coleslaw wrestling matches, attendees at Daytona Beach Bike Week can enjoy daily bike shows, motorcycle swap meets, live music and concerts at Destination Daytona, and other popular downtown bars and even professional motorcycle racing at the world-famous Daytona International Speedway.

If you live to ride, Daytona Beach is the place to be this March. Just jump on your favorite bike, point the handlebars toward Daytona Beach and head south. When you arrive, you will find plenty of fellow motorcycle enthusiasts, along with live music, great food, and the camaraderie only the biker community fully understands.
