The 27th Annual Arizona Bike Week, slated for April 3 through April 7, at WestWorld of Scottsdale, promises an exhilarating mix of music, motorcycling mastery, and philanthropy. This year, the legendary alternative metal band Godsmack is set to headline a robust lineup of nightly concerts, drawing fans from across the nation.

Arizona Bike Week has evolved into the Southwest’s premier bike rally, showcasing a blend of high-octane entertainment and charitable endeavors. The event features a diverse array of attractions, including stunt shows, charity rides, contests, camping, and world-class vendors, catering to motorcycle fans of all interests.

The event kicks off on Wednesday, April 3, with a tribute to the Armed Forces, showcasing six custom motorcycles representing different branches of the United States military. This unique display highlights the skill and artistry of renowned builders in the V-Twin industry and pays homage to the nation’s servicemen and women.

Attendees will have the opportunity to partake in factory demo rides, offering firsthand experiences with the latest models from leading motorcycle manufacturers such as Harley-Davidson, Indian, and Kawasaki. The PowerYard will be the hub for these test rides, alongside other high-energy activities like the All Out Dyno Drags, where participants can compete in a simulated quarter-mile race.

A significant component of Arizona Bike Week is its dedication to charitable causes. The Arizona Bike Week Charities Group plays a pivotal role, managing registrations for charity rides and various event elements. Proceeds from these activities are directed towards community service projects, with a focus on supporting group homes and veteran assistance programs.

Music remains a cornerstone of the rally, with Godsmack leading an impressive roster of performers. Known for hits such as “I Stand Alone” and “Voodoo,” their performance in the Rockyard on Saturday night is anticipated to be a highlight of the week. The rally will also feature performances by other notable bands, including Everclear, offering a broad spectrum of musical entertainment.

Arizona Bike Week concludes on Sunday, April 7, with a range of activities including a swap meet and a final round of performances by bands from Alice Cooper’s Solid Rock Teen Centers. This day of free admission offers a perfect wrap-up to a week filled with excitement, camaraderie, and charity.
