Aug. 29–Sept. 2, 2018
The party begins today with 88 events at 27 venues over five days. Harley-Davidson riders and enthusiasts from all over the globe are in Milwaukee for Harley-Davidson’s 115th Anniversary. The party of the year will feature celebrations all about riding, racing, meeting new friends and connecting with people who share a love for life on two wheels.
Southeastern Wisconsin will roll out the orange carpet with legendary events like Beach Brawl, Flat Out Friday, Hillclimb competitions, street parties, drag racing and so much more. Plus, area dealers will host free demo rides, the factory in Menomonee Falls will be open for tours and H-D’s Global Headquarters will provide the ultimate backdrop for the ultimate photo op.

And everyone is invited to learn more about Harley-Davidson’s 115 years of fulfilling dreams of personal freedom by visiting the H-D Museum. “The Museum not only tells the story of Harley-Davidson, it’s where our history, heritage and passion come to life. The freedom, pride and camaraderie of Harley-Davidson riders are always on display here,” said Bill Davidson, Vice President of the Harley-Davidson Museum and great-grandson of company founder William A. Davidson.
