As the photo / editor / web guy for Iron Trader News, sharing what I do during rallies is something I love to spread around. We all are stuck at home during these trying times, so if you need a little extra entertainment, click on this link. There are no costs, no email addresses to leave, just good ol’ biker rally images.
Since the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally is put on by many different venues and organizations, and not owned by any one organization, we will keep an updated list of all the Sturgis Rally venues that have publicly stated their position in regard to the coronavirus below.
No Sturgis Rally Venues Have Postponed or Canceled Any Events.
All concerts, events and activities are on schedule for late summer. We are planning on having a great celebration come August 7th.
The good news continues to be that, according to U.S. health officials, the overall coronavirus risk remains low, and healthy individuals can still travel within the United States with no travel restrictions.
We look forward to seeing you August 7-15, 2020 for the 80th Sturgis Rally.
Organizations that have made public statements about 80th Sturgis Rally and the coronavirus so far include:
- Sturgis Buffalo Chip – Moving forward as planned
- Black Hills HD Rally at Exit 55 – Moving forward as planned
- City of Sturgis – Moving forward as planned
80th Anniversary of the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally
Sturgis, SD (February 14, 2020) Few entities and people have stood the test of time and can rightfully be called legendary like those joining the Sturgis Buffalo Chip lineup today. The Buffalo Chip’s self-proclaimed house band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, is continuing a legendary tradition by finishing off their 40-plus year career with an ultimate send-off on the Wolfman Jack Stage on Sunday, Aug. 9. This is Skynyrd’s second stop at the Chip as part of their three-year “Farewell Tour.” In keeping with the theme, 36 of the world’s most celebrated motorcycle builders have accepted Michael Lichter’s invitation to create and display a motorcycle in the style of their choosing for the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s 2020 Motorcycles as Art exhibit titled “Heavy Mettle: Motorcycles and Art with Moxie.” All invited builders have completed at least 20 custom builds and been in business for at least 20 years. The one-time exhibit will also feature photographs captured by Lichter over his 40 plus-year career. The exhibit is free and open to the public at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip Event Center from 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 8 through Friday, Aug. 14, 2020.
