Each October, the Ormond Beach area welcomes motorcycle enthusiasts from across the country and around the world. Though Biketoberfest is traditionally a smaller event than its more well-known counterpart, Bike Week, there’s no shortage of fun and excitement to be had over this thrilling weekend.
This year’s event runs from October 17 to 20. Based in Daytona Beach (the main event is held at the Daytona International Speedway) , in recent years events and programs have been held at various satellite locations. That includes the quiet and laid-back seaside community of Ormond Beach. In fact, more bikers choose to stay in the Ormond Beach area when they want to get away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.
Today, the small town values and community-minded charm of Ormond Beach consistently draws tourists and new residents alike to this dynamic locale. Read on to discover how you and your family can take part in this year’s Biketoberfest.

Event organizers plan for more than 125,000 bikers from around the globe to descend on the Daytona Beach area for this year’s event. Along with sharing fellowship and pleasant conversation over a shared hobby, there will also be live music, food and craft vendors, public demonstrations, and more.
