Another rally season spreads its wings with our trademark event on the glamorous French Riviera.
If the northern hemisphere’s winter weather is getting you down, it’s time to turn your thoughts to one of the highlights of the H.O.G.® calendar: the Harley-Davidson® Euro Festival, returning for a ninth year to the Golfe de Saint-Tropez for three days of fun in the sun.
The Golfe de Saint-Tropez is a place of contrasts, from the luxury beachfront hotels to the picturesque hilltop village of Grimaud. H.O.G. members get the best of both worlds, with the beach providing the main party venue, while the village just inland hosts the renowned Custom Bike Show. This is always a highlight, with prizes in numerous categories – bring your customised bike, or simply admire the stunning creations on display! And, if you can bear to tear yourself away from the party, the stunning coastline and the hills inland offer endless riding opportunities.
The Harley® Village is a great place to browse, with a variety of traders and dealers helping you find ways to enhance your Harley experience – or just find the ideal souvenir for the kids back home!
In the evening, attention turns to the main stage situated on the beach, with live acts every night so you can party as the sun goes down, and for hours afterwards. And, of course, there is no shortage of bars and restaurants to enjoy in this vibrant resort.
As ever, Saturday will see thousands of motorcycles wind their way through Saint-Tropez and along the coast in the spectacular parade. This annual fixture has become a ritual for locals too, with many coming out to marvel at the line of gleaming bikes as it goes by.
After a record-breaking 12,000 Harley owners came to join the party in 2014, this year promises to be bigger and better than ever. We’ll see you there!
