This August Killington will be filled with the sound of motors reeving their engines as they prepare to hit the roads. Come to Vermont for an event packed full of great rides and exciting events that you cannot find anywhere else. What exactly does the Killington Classic Motorcycle Rally have to offer? Here are just a few things we, here at GetAway Vacations, love about this festival!
From August 27th to the 30th, Killington Classic Motorcycle Rally is a weekend filled with excitement and unforgettable memories. One awesome event the Rally features is the “Best of Show” contest. Enter the coolest bike you can design to win a prize. Anyone can register, making this an interesting event even just to watch! This event will be held in The Foundry at 3:00 P.M. on the first day of the Rally.
Another event to check out at the Killington Classic Motorcycle Rally is the Field Event. Contestants will show off their balancing skills during a race in which the slowest bike wins. If you choose to enter this event, make sure to practice your balancing skills beforehand. It is trickier than it seems!
Come to the event with an appetite because the Full Throttle Dinner is definitely something you want to attend with a big appetite! Join fellow motorcyclists for a fantastic dinner prior to the Jamboree. The dinner will be located at the Summit Lodge, which is only a short walk from the Vendor Village. Enjoy scrumptious food while overlooking a stunning garden. The evening is taken to the next level with live music. The dinner buffet menu includes chicken marsala, potato salad, homemade baked rolls, sliced pork lion glazed with a cider raisin, and to top of the delicious meal is homemade apple crisp for dessert! Afterward enjoy the spectacular fireworks as they light up the dark night sky! Buy your tickets to the dinner in advance to save money and to ensure that you have a seat! The dinner will be held on the last day of the Rally!
