Freewheelers MC Ireland In conjunction with Waterford Harley Davidson present Waterford Motorcycle Fest
Freewheelers MC Ireland in conjunction with Waterford Harley Davidson will bring something to Waterford that has never seen before. Our very own annual Waterford Motorcycle Fest on Friday the 20th to Sunday the 22nd July, celebrating custom bike building, live music and the motorcycle lifestyle. This event will be the first of its kind in the Republic of Ireland and promises to give the public a look at some of the bikes in the flesh that normally can only be seen on TV or across the web and magazines.
A major part of this event will be the charity "Boobs and Balls" road trip that last year raised a whopping €23,000 for The Solas Centre. The Run will arrive in John Roberts Square Saturday 21st at 2pm so if you see any of our Solas Centre volunteers please dig deep, a little help goes a long way. Sponsorship cards are available at Waterford Harley-Davidson for anyone who should want to buy a line or take part in the Road Trip.
The Unusual Suspects will have John Roberts Square rocking on Saturday afternoon from 2.30pm to 4.30pm. The Custom Bike Show will take place on Sat 21st at midday until 5pm when prizegiving will commence and there will be a handover of monies raised for Solas Centre. Lifestyle Trader Stalls will be set up in Jenkins Lane carpark all Day Saturday.
Live entertainment for the weekend starts Friday 20th in pubs and venues across the city. Taking in local and national talent in the form of:
The Rusty Fixtures at The Gingerman,
Streetalk at Geoffs
Dirty Vodoo at The Wacky Apple
The Blaas at The Kazbar
Saturday offers more music from Trad to Rock: Paul Hennessy at Mcloughlins,
Bualadh Bos at T&H Doolans,
Kodakid at Downes,
Dirty Voodoo at Murphys the Quay and
Crowblack Chicken at The Forum. (Midnight to 2am)
Sundays after show and barbecue will be hosted by White Lines at Murphys Bar on the quay from 4pm. This Festival promises to be a great event for young and old alike and everyone is welcome.
