Lake George will host annual motorcycle rally
Organizers of Americade are already planning an Americade 2021, and are optimistic that the 38th annual motorcycle rally will be held in the Lake George area on June 7-12, 2021.
“Interest in Americade 2021 is very high because so many 2020 events were canceled, and we are expecting a huge Americade 2021,” said Christian Dutcher, Americade’s director. “Naturally,
COVID-19 may have a say in this, and if we need to push Americade later, then we would postpone until later in the year.”
2020’s postponement from June to July, though ultimately canceled, compelled organizers to carefully consider all safety measures put in place by state and federal health agencies while still offering attendees a true Americade experience. Those precautions are still at the forefront of planning for 2021.
“We created a touchless Americade 2020, which would have made the event a model for how to run a large event during COVID-19,” said Dutcher. “We plan on doing the same in 2021 if needed. It’s simply a safer way to run an event.”
For nearly four decades, Americade has offered not only the best guided and unguided rides in the Northeast, but also the most factory demos of any motorcycle event in the U.S. as well as
Americade Expo with the largest concentration of motorcycle vendors in a single location at one time.
Lake George-area businesses have supported Americade week and consider it to be the kickoff to their summer season.
