Sept. 10 - OC BikeFest

Posted: Updated:

GOOD MORNING DELMARVA - The highly anticipated OC BikeFest presented by Rommel Harley-Davidson rolls into Ocean City for its third exciting, jam-packed year this Sept. 12-15. OC BikeFest will treat Delmarva Coast motorcycle enthusiasts to four days of fantastic music and thrilling entertainment at the Inlet and Convention Center.

OC BikeFest will take place on the same grounds and setup as Sunfest, including its two stages that will play host to classic rock headliners. Jackyl with Jesse James Dupree will rock the stage Sept. 12, 5:30pm, Foghat takes the stage at 2;30pm on September 13, followed by the group War at 5:30pm.  Saturday September 14, 70's Supergroup America performs at 2:30pm with Three Dog Night on stage at 5:30pm.  

Other acts throughout the weekend include a Jimi Hendrix Tribute by Jamiah on Fire and The Red Machine, Kashmir - the nation's #1 Led Zeppelin tribute show, Blizzard of Ozzy (an Ozzy Osbourne Tribute) and The Bastard Bearded Irishmen.

In addition to great music other attractions include The Wall of Death, an extreme motorcycle thrill show; Circus Una stunt show, vendors, demo rides and more.

Happening simultaneously with the DelMarva Bike Week, which annually attracts more than 120,000 motorcycling enthusiasts to Salisbury – the OC BikeFest offers visiting bikers and many others, an opportunity to head down to the ocean to enjoy stunt shows, custom bike builders, a motorcycle vendor mall, food tents, Budweiser and Jack Daniel's Pubs, shops, rides and the fabulous bars and restaurants in Ocean City.

OC BikeFest organizer Cliff Sutherland says he hopes to attract families and motorcycle enthusiasts who are ready for a good time. Sutherland is quite familiar with the Maryland beach, as he has vacationed in Ocean City for 40-plus years. A frequent participant in Delmarva Bike Week, he became concerned over the event's western migration, so Sutherland met with Ocean City officials and brought the inaugural rally to the coastal city in 2011.

 "What we've done is created a high-end event for Ocean City," he says. "Our rally will probably be 60 percent motorcyclists and 40 percent other folks," Sutherland adds. "We do all types of music not just your ‘traditional biker' music. We aim to attract everyone."

He says the average biker is 52 years old and makes about $94,000 a year. He adds that their bikes don't come with trunks and attendees will spend most of their dollars in local restaurants, retail stores and hotels. Sutherland says he is expecting at least 100,000 visitors this year.

Hours vary by location and can be found at www.ocbikefest.com

Advance passes are available at Rommel Harley-Davidson and Rommel's ACE stores. Admission allows attendees to come and go as they please for all four days. A 4-day pass for adults is $25 and a one-day pass is $20. Children's 4-day pass is $15. Sunday is Family Day, adults pay $10 and children $5.
