Harley Adds John Fogerty, Uncle Kracker, 2-Day Tix for 110th

Wed, 10 Jul 2013

100,000 thundering motorcycles. 60-plus bands. All the food and drink you can handle. Demo rides on 2014 Harley-Davidson motorcycles. Free tattoos. Custom bikes shows. UFC Octagon. And now a new two-day ticket option. Could a Harley fan could want anything more?

The Harley-Davidson 110th Anniversary Celebration over Labor Day weekend is fast approaching, with non-stop events geared toward all kinds of Harley fans – riders, locals, visitors and families.

Due to popular demand, a two-day ticket option is now available. Valid for any two days of the three-day party, the two-day ticket is $79 plus “convenience fees.”  (Note that Harley-Davidson will not offer one-day tickets to the 110th celebration.)

Three-day tickets, available for $95 plus “convenience fees,” and two-day tickets each provide access to the 110th Anniversary party headquarters – the Milwaukee Summerfest Grounds. During the three-day event, fans can see dozens of bands on five different stages ranging from emerging stars to legendary groups, as well as check out police and H.O.G. motorcycle stunts, precision riding shows and special Harley-Davidson product displays and exhibits.

In addition to the 60 acts that will take the various stages of the Summerfest Grounds during the 110th Anniversary celebration in Milwaukee, Harley-Davidson will also feature three headlining concerts each night of the event and a UFC fight Saturday night.

Country superstar Toby Keith (Thursday 29), Rock n’ Roll Hall-of-Famers Aerosmith (Friday 30) and Kid Rock featuring Uncle Kracker and John Fogerty (Saturday 31) will each take the stage at Marcus Amphitheater. Tickets for Toby Keith begin at $20, while Aerosmith and Kid Rock tickets start at $24.50 each plus “convenience fees” – tickets for all three concerts are available at


Additional festivities for the H-D 110th celebration include:

- On Thursday, between noon and 5 p.m., Harley-Davidson will celebrate the 30th anniversary of H.O.G. (Harley Owners Group), the official riding club of Harley-Davidson. The event will feature exclusive early entry for H.O.G. members, live entertainment including Lynyrd Skynyrd, a H.O.G. precision riding competition, a New Orleans-style walking parade and a members-only Muscular Dystrophy Association bike raffle. In addition, there will be the largest-ever H.O.G. member family photo, a “Dream Ride Contest” and a H.O.G. 30th anniversary time capsule, which will be sealed on Labor Day and reopened in 2043.

- Harley-Davidson Powertrain Operations in Menomonee Falls will offer the first opportunities to demo the new 2014 motorcycles and take a free factory tour all weekend. Demo rides are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., while free factory tours are 9 a.m. to 3 p.m.

- The Harley-Davidson Museum has a series of activities planned every day of the party, including bike shows, a JUMPSTART Rider Experience featuring 2014 motorcycles, a limited number of small wedding ceremony packages, custom culture artisans, outdoor concessions, live music and a special “After Dark” acoustic lounge experience every evening at 9 p.m. at Motor Bar & Restaurant. All outdoor activities, as well as the “After Dark” series are free and open to the public. Reservations are required for entry to the Museum, available exclusively at

- On Saturday, one of the greatest spectacles in Milwaukee will return as thousands of Harley-Davidson enthusiasts and their guests will ride with pride during the 110th Anniversary parade. The parade will begin at Miller Park at noon and travel east on Wisconsin Avenue before ending at the Summerfest Grounds. A special pass is required to ride in the parade, but fans are invited to line Wisconsin Avenue to cheer on the participating riders.
