The Evanston MotorCycle Classic is planning a return in 2018! The date hasn’t received ‘official’ approval yet from the City of Evanston, but the application for the event has been submitted. We are hoping to move the event up a couple of weeks to September 30, 2018. Stay tuned for more details!

Thank you to all who came out today for the Evanston Motorcycle Classic!! While the weather was questionable, it didn’t stop at least 70 motorcycles + spectators from coming out to this inaugural event!
Based on feedback, we are starting to plan next years event!!
Even if you don’t ride a motorcycle, you are more than welcome to attend the Evanston Motorcycle Classic. Many people appreciate the design, form, and function of transportation in many forms. Tomorrow you will see motorcycles on two wheels and maybe three. Motorcycle art will be on display that was conceived by the original designer or those that took the original design to a new level and customized their motorcycle. You may not ride, but appreciate art….consider art on two wheels vs. framed…
If you are in the Chicagoland area and planning to attend the Evanston Motorcycle Classic tomorrow, don’t be afraid. The rain should be gone and aside from some potential wind, the weather is going to be seasonal and great for this event!
Just a heads up that construction continues at the corner of Orrington Ave. and Davis St. in Evanston. The event site is just beyond this intersection. Unfortunately riders will will need to go through this intersection with wavy, uneven pavement to get to the show. The pavement is fine beyond this and in the area of the show.
In addition to taking a ride up the beautiful north shore, there are several things to do in Evanston on Sunday after the show. Consider these:
- Dine at one of the great restaurants downtown
- Shop the unique stores
- Check out the lakefront
- Check out the micro-brews
- Visit Evanston Oktoberfest 2017
Stay in tune with what’s happening in Evanston with Downtown Evanston:
Of course, the Evanston Motocycle Classic encourages an adult approach to drinking and riding…
