Motorcyclists will converge to roam the Great Smoky Mountains and Blue Ridge Parkway. Besides riding, there will also be music, vendors and bike show/games throughout the three days.

Rising country star Rachele Lynae will perform at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, May 4, at the Maggie Valley Festival Grounds. With a voice as bold and expansive as the Alaskan sky that blanketed her childhood, Lynae first burst onto the country music scene in 2012 with her debut single, “Party ‘Til the Cows Come Home.”

Weekend passes are $17 per person in advance, $20 during the weekend. Passes for children ages 5-12 are $8 and can only purchased at the event.
