For many, it’s a yearly pilgrimage; for some, it’s a first time excursion; for all involved, it’s one of the most exciting and fun weekends of the year. The Wildwoods Roar to the Shore Motorcycle Rally, the largest free motorcycle rally in the northeast, is set for Thursday, September 10 through Sunday, September 13, featuring free live entertainment, motorcycle vendors, food and merchandise vendors and great events all weekend long.

Roar to the Shore thrives in the Wildwoods because of the shore destination’s centralized location on the East Coast. Located 150 miles or less from most major cities including Philadelphia, New York City, Baltimore and Washington, D.C., there’s no need to trailer your bikes to this rally. Just ride in and once you are here, sit back, relax and enjoy the festivities, or take a ride along the scenic roads of Cape May County. Stroll through hundreds of national vendors located throughout five separate vending lots peddling everything from cigars, to leather, to jewelry to motorcycles. Whether you’re looking for motorcycle parts, paint or patches, you’re guaranteed to find what you’re looking for here.

Roar to the Shore will also include events such as a guided ride to Kindle Ford for a pig roast; a FREE Walking Poker Run; Biker Babe Contest; Rubber Duck Boardwalk Ride and Harley Davidson Motorcycle Give Away; Battle of the Biker Bands Semi-Finals and Finals; a Custom Boardwalk Bike Show; and a Bike Lights Show.
