Llangollen International Motorcycle Festival 2017

Saturday 5th and Sunday 6th August 2017

Looking forward to some great riding this summer? Add LlanBikeFest 15 ( to your diary for Saturday, August 1st and Sunday, August 2nd 2015.Llan MCF


The Llangollen International Motorcycle Festival will be at the town’s Pavilion, home to the globally renowned International Musical Eisteddfod events. It’s set amid some of Britain’s best biking roads – at the foot of the Horseshoe Pass and its famously bike-friendly Ponderosa Café, and on the edge of the Snowdonia National Park.


The site has previously hosted successful bike shows – since 2011 – but LlanBikeFest 17 is being organised by a new team of local motorcycle enthusiasts.

“The Pavilion is a fantastic site in a location that is heaven for bikers of every type – on and off road. Riding to the festival and around the area will be a key part of the experience.”

“LlanBikeFest 15  will be a family-friendly festival, celebrating every aspect of motorcycling. We plan to make it an annual event and attract visitors from far and wide.”


On-site attractions will include displays, stunts, demonstrations, trade and club stands, plus beer, bands and evening entertainment.

“The Llangollen area has excellent campsites and accommodation but we are urging people to book early, as we are expecting a lot of interest.”
