No sooner does the 2012 riding season come to an end than Harley-Davidson issues the opening salvo for next years’ riding season by yesterday’s announcement of the sale date for tickets to the highly coveted 110th Anniversary Celebration in Milwaukee.
The anniversary year will see events take place throughout the 2013 year at locations across the globe in 11 countries on six continents – including the highly anticipated Papal blessing of the bikes in Vatican City – with the culmination happening in Milwaukee.
Tickets for Harley-Davidson’s 110th Anniversary Celebration in Milwaukee next year will go on sale to the general public on Dec. 17, 2012, at www.H-D.com/110tickets. Members of the Harley Owners Group (H.O.G.), the Motor Company’s official riding club, will have an opportunity to purchase tickets beginning Dec. 10, 2012.
The Harley-Davidson 110th Anniversary Celebration event in Milwaukee is Thursday, Aug. 29, through Sunday, Sept. 1, 2013. Events will include fan-organized rides to Milwaukee, a massive parade, three headlining concerts, parties at Milwaukee’s Henry Maier Festival Park (Summerfest Grounds) and activities at the Harley-Davidson Museum. Talent, as well as ticket details for the three headlining concerts that will be hosted at Marcus Amphitheater on the Summerfest Grounds, will be announced in early 2013.
For H.O.G. members, the event tickets include access to the global H.O.G. 30th Anniversary Celebration on Aug. 29 at the Summerfest Grounds, as well as access to members-only areas throughout the weekend’s events. Additional free public activities include parties at participating Harley-Davidson dealerships and street parties around the city.
