Laconia Motorcycle Week

June 8-16 2024

The Laconia Motorcycle Week rally draws in over a million riders and motorcycle enthusiasts, combined, every year!

101st Anniversary Laconia Motorcycle Week!

If you can only choose one National Rally to attend in 2024 – choose the one you have to ride the furthest to! And if riding is your pleasure then we hope you’ll be joining us for Laconia Motorcycle Week® in 2024 because In Laconia… We Ride®

Why New Hampshire, you may ask?  Well, to truly understand the answer, you have to go back to the early years . . . 1916, to be exact (7 years were missed due to national and world events), when the first group of gypsy tour riders made the trek up US Route 3, a mostly dirt road that wound its way through the mountains, valleys and straightaways of rural New Hampshire.  Back then, a trip to Laconia, a popular tourist destination even then, was a day-long trip and an even bigger commitment on two-wheels.  What made the trip worth it was the camaraderie, fresh air, accessibility and, most importantly, scenery.  And New Hampshire had it all!  1916 began the story of Laconia Motorcycle Week – the World’s Oldest Motorcycle Rally and the legacy continues!

Today, ask any rider the same question, “why New Hampshire?” and the answers are remarkably similar.  Scenery, fresh air and accessibility.  Where else can you ride up and down mountains, through quaint, New England towns, around magnificent lakes and along miles of oceanfront?  All within 100 miles, too.  On top of that, New Hampshire has the 5th highest motorcycle registrations, per capita and residents and businesses alike embrace the 2-wheeled visitors that embark here every June.
