Gettysburg Bike Week Announces First Wave of Entertainment for 2017 Rally
16th Anniversary of GBW Jam-packed with Bikes, Bands and Contests
Gettysburg Bike Week is back for its 16th anniversary rally at the Allstar Events Complex in Gettysburg, PA, and the entertainment slate is starting to fill up. Festivities kick off Thursday, July 6, 2017, and run through Sunday, July 9.
“I know rally goers are going to be stoked on the acts we’ve booked so far,” says GBW event coordinator Kelly Shue. “We’ve got returning favorites plus some new blood.”
This year’s musical acts include Saturday headliner Warrant, with more to be announced, and A-list regional groups like Blizzard of Ozzy (the country’s premier Ozzy Osbourne and Black Sabbath cover band) and the acclaimed Hank Williams, Jr., tribute band All My Rowdy Friends. Legendary emcee Jack Schit will once again perform master of ceremonies duties throughout the week on the Budweiser Stage, Gin Gypsies will be slinging the drinks and this year’s rally will feature a cornhole tournament (directed by York Adams Cornhole). Expect great performances from the Cherry Bombs and 50 Shades of Men plus bike builders battling for the Biker Build-Off Championship; heavy competition in the Cycle Source Ride-In Bike Show, Ride and Rodeo; the Parade of Chrome; and that perennial crowd-pleaser, the GBW wet T-shirt contest. One, two and four-day passes are available here.
And, of course, no rally would be complete without great riding, and Gettysburg has some of the best. Whether riders want to see historic battlegrounds or just hit the road for a great cruise, hundreds of miles of the best riding in the East surrounds Gettysburg. In addition to fantastic solo riding, GBW also features awesome group rides and the Pink Journey of Lights and Stars of Hope Charity Rides.

$35 per-person 4-day passes, available online and at the gates.
