America’s Car Museum (ACM) in Tacoma, Washington, will kick-start the hearts of weekend warriors in the Pacific Northwest with a full agenda of activities around its fourth annual Vintage Motorcycle Festival: The MEET at ACM, taking place Saturday, August 22.
The motorcycle show will showcase presenting sponsor Indian Motorcycle’s demo rig, where attendees can test ride V-Twin cruisers from America’s oldest motorcycle company. Live music, presented by Emerald Queen Casino, with feature artists British Export, Reann’s Grove and Heart by Heart will fill Tacoma as vintage motorcycles cruise in for display on ACM’s Haub Family Field.
“The MEET continues to grow in popularity every year. Even though our Vintage Motorcycle Festival is taking place Saturday, we are providing an entire weekend’s worth of activities for motorcycle lovers and enthusiasts,” said ACM CEO David Madeira. “Participants can cruise in to our welcome party on Friday night, catch the show and concert on Saturday and cruise through the scenic back roads and rolling foothills between Tacoma and Mount Rainier as part of our Sunday ride.”
A $20 general admission ticket includes Museum admission, access to the festival and concerts. The Sunday ride is planned by the Vintage Motorcycle Enthusiast Club (VME), the Northwest’s premier vintage motorcycle collector club, which was founded in 1982. Anyone is welcome to participate in the 74-mile loop ride; open to any scooter or motorcycle class for $15.
Also taking place at the Vintage Motorcycle Festival, ACM raffle off a Willow Green and Cream 2015 Indian Chief Vintage.
“With all of the different show categories, we know that this year’s MEET will be the best,” said Vintage Motorcycle Festival Board Chairman Mark Zenor. “Make sure you don’t miss out on the many activities we have planned! New this year is a one-of-a-kind trophy for the best of show winner, designed and handcrafted by American glass artist John Miller.”
