Now in its 12th year, Bikefest is an international event attracting bike enthusiasts in their droves from all over the world to Killarney. This is a 3 day free biker festival, any festival would not be complete without music and an endless line up of live entertainment is exactly what is planned. This 3 day motorcycle and music festival takes place across Ireland’s bank holiday weekend June 1st – 4th to coincide with celebrating Harley Davidson’s 115th anniversary in 2018.
From kids to families, locals to tourists, bikers to non bikers, Bikefest has something for everyone. Along with the opportunity to ride along the most beautiful scenery in Ireland, on world renowned routes like the Ring of Kerry and the Wild Atlantic way, Bikefest has a wide range of attractions, from festival food and drink, custom bike show, novelty dog show and family fun to name but a few.
Headlining the Main Stage at the INEC are: The Affray, The Irish Rolling Stones, JoanoVarc, The Harleys and Hells Bells. There is plenty of local interest with super bands playing throughout the 3 day Bikefest including Killarney’s homegrown talent The Small Hours and Liam O Connor.
The charity associated with the Bikefest is Muscular Dystrophy since its beginning in 2007. The money raised from the raffle to win a Harley Davidson 750 will be used to fund the respite support services Muscular Dystrophy Ireland provide to 752 member nationwide. Through this partnership with Ireland Bikefest to win a Harley Davidson raffle has raised over €150,000 across Ireland.
