Classic Motorcycle Day is one of the largest events of its kind, with a field full of all types of Classic British, European & Japanese motorcycles for display and judging; large swap meet vendor area; food trucks and more. We are located in the rolling countryside of Maryland, close to Washington, DC, Frederick and Baltimore. The all-volunteer staff has planned and produced this event for 17 years (30 years if you count the previous incarnation, ‘British Motorcycle Day’). We give back to the community, and have donated thousands of dollars to Montgomery County Police Explorers, an organization that gives our local youth a chance to explore what it is like have a career in law enforcement.
For 2021, the Classic Motorcycle Day featured marques are Japanese and the cutoff date has been changed to 1985 or older. There are 8 Japanese classes for the judged concours as well as classes for British, European and Customs. Prizes also for ‘Most Technical Interest’, Best of Show ‘Classic Motorcycle Day Award’, Oldest British, Oldest European and Oldest Japanese motorcycles.
The vendor area has Classic British, European & Japanese parts and accessories, complete bikes, project bikes, maybe even that elusive piece you need to finish a bike you’re working on. We will have event T-shirts, hats and posters available for sale the day of the event.
The 2019 Classic Motorcycle Day was well attended, guesstimates of 1550 attendees and 130 concours bikes. The quality of the concours was impressive, with original machines mingled in with full restorations and custom fabricated motorcycles of the highest caliber. A list of the 2019 Concours winners and a link to pictures and videos of earlier years’ events are on the ‘Past Years’ page. We hope everyone enjoyed themselves and had a safe trip home, and we can’t wait to see you in 2021.
