Americade @ Charles. R Wood Park
Jun 7 – Jun 11 all-day
Americade @ Charles. R Wood Park

Americade has become the world’s largest multi-brand motorcycle touring rally. Local police estimates indicate it attracts 100,000 – 200,000 visitors days for the 6-day event.

It’s a convention of riders enjoying a week-long festival of motorcycling, including guided tours in the beautiful Adirondack Park, and the Green Mountains of VT.

Americade also includes a massive trade show with approx 200 vendors, demos, and displays from most major motorcycle manufacturers, catered dinner boat cruises, stunt shows, comedy shows, and much, much more.

To participate, most attendees register for a full-week wristband, giving them access to the trade show, the demos, and displays, Americade’s headquarters where many events take place, and much more.

Americade is a gathering of friendly, fun-loving folks, for whom motorcycling is a social hobby, but not some form of rebellion. It’s NOT the place for shows of speed, hostile attitudes, or illegally loud bikes. Americade supports the statement from the former President & CEO of Harley-Davidson:  “Something We Never Want to Lose” and the AMA position that “Loud Pipes Risk Rights.


WHEN?

Americade is the first full week of June-exception to 2021’s postponement.

2020: June 2nd – 6th (Monday, June 1st for Pre-Registration Party)

2021: September 21st – 25th (Monday, Sept. 20th for Pre-Registration Party

2022: June 7th – 11th (Monday, June 6th for Pre-Registration Party)

2023: June 6th – 10th (Monday, June 5th for Pre-Registration Party)

2024: June 4th – 8th (Monday, June 3rd for Pre-Registration Party)


HOW DID IT START?

May 1983 marked the first “Cade” in the east. Veteran motorcyclist Bill Dutcher and a small but able staff hosted “Aspencade East ” at Lake George, NY. Social and demo headquarters were at Roaring Brook Ranch. The TourExpo trade show was held at the Glens Falls Civic Center, approximately 10 miles to the south. This first event drew about 2,000.


WHY WAS IT ORIGINALLY NAMED “ASPENCADE”?

Since 1971, there had been a touring motorcycle rally in Ruidoso, NM bearing this name. The name came from an annual civic festival, which celebrated the changing colors of the aspen (birch) trees, by having a cavalcade of horses. Dutcher arranged with Aspencade organizer, Til Thompson, to use the Aspencade name for the eastern touring rally.


WHY AMERI-CADE?

In 1986, “Aspencade East” was changed to “Americade”, because the new name better signified the multi-brand national-sized rally it had become. By 1986, total attendance was nearly 10,000, making it the largest touring rally in the motorcycle world. At the same time, Americade’s tradeshow was relocated from the Glens Falls Civic Center to Lake George Village.

For over 20 years the Expo was located at Million Dollar Beach Parking Lot, but in 2018 was moved closer to Americade’s event headquarters, Fort William Henry Resort in Lake George Village, at the beautiful Charles Wood Festival Commons.
