What is Arizona Bike Week?

The first organized gathering of like-minded people took place in 1997 thanks to the work of a group of enthusiastic motorcyclists. They had no idea that their little event would become a storied festival that draws bikers from all over the world. Flash forward to 2023, and the event is drawing in close to 100,000 people per year! That makes ABW the largest motorcycle rally in the southwest. 

What sets the location apart

Anyone who’s visited a bike rally or festival before knows that the large groups of people and crowded grounds sometimes lead to less-than-ideal conditions. Arizona Bike Week takes place in Scottsdale, Arizona, at WestWorld- with pristine grounds. 

You can camp on-site

Although other bike weeks have nearby campgrounds, ABW offers a unique opportunity to house thousands of people directly on-site at WestWorld every year. 

Celebrate with campground parties after concerts

Don’t let the rally stop at the end of the concert- keep the morale going with the after-parties!

It’s not just for motorcycle riders.

When we spoke with one of the coordinators of Arizona Bike Week, one thing was made clear- this is a unique festival that doubles as a motorcycle rally and bike week. Whether you ride, don’t ride, have a bike, don’t have a bike- you can find something you’ll enjoy.
