Barber Vintage Festival 2016 04 October 16

The Annual Barber Vintage Festival is one of the most highly anticipated motorcycle events in the world. The three-day festival features the America's First Fan Zone with food and entertainment, Ace Corner, a Century Parade, a swap meet with hundreds of vendors selling vintage motorcycles and parts, as well as the AMCA and VJMC gatherings, and the Motorcycle Classics show. Don’t forget… the Barber Vintage Motorsports Museum features extended hours as well as seminars during the 12th Annual Barber Vintage Festival Presented by the Triumph Dealers of North America. So when you’re not in the park, be sure to check out what’s going on in the museum!

Some of the 2016 Vintage Festival Attractions

Wall of Death
The American Motor Drome Company's "Wall of Death", gives you a glimpse into the century-old sport of board track racing. Spectators stand on a platform that circles a 15-foot-high wooden "bowl", inches away from the motor drome's daredevils riding their vintage Indian and antique Harley-Davidson motorcycles around and around the vertical track.

Ace Corner
Built in partnership between Ace Cafe London and Dime City Cycles, Ace Corner Barber is an area dedicated to Cafe Racers, custom builds, and cool vintage bikes, whether made of steel, or flesh and bone. Ace Corner Barber is a celebration of the timeless, teeth-chattering, soul-shaking speed machines and riders that hailed the streets of London in the 50s and 60s.

Monster Energy Stunt Show
The best way to describe us is just KSFMX Freestyle Motocross show. Freestyle motocross (also known as FMX) is a variation on the sport of motocross in which motorcycle riders impress Crowds with doing tricks while jumping 75' and 30' in the air.

Century Parade
Keeping with the Barber Motorsports spirit of providing you with “living” history, the Lap of the Century features bikes built in 1914 and earlier. These are not bikes that collect dust in the garage—they’re part of history that keeps moving forward!

Globe of Death
Built back in 1912 by Jose Urias, the Globe of Death is a 16-foot-wide sphere made of metal and mesh. For generations, members of the Urias family have ridden their dirt bikes inside the globe at speeds of up to 60mph. Don't miss this opportunity to see these motorcycling "daredevils" perform some truly extraordinary stunts!

All this and so much more. Hopefully we will see you there.
