THE REPUBLIC OF TEXAS BIKER RALLY
June 13, 2019 - June 16, 2019
Address: Travis County Expo Center, 7311 Decker Lane, Austin, Texas 78724
The popular ROT Rally returns to Austin for its 22nd year and the city is rolling out the red carpet for the men and women in black. The Travis County Expo Center, 11 miles east of downtown Austin, is the epicenter for rally events, vendors, music, food, contests and rides. Some 30 bands will perform, headlined by the Kings of Chaos. Downtown Austin will close off 54 square city blocks for ROT’s annual Friday Night Bike Parade, which culminates at the steps of the Texas State Capitol on Congress Avenue. Some 200,000 motorcyclists and their admirers are expected to fill the streets after the parade. Rally attractions include the Artisan Custom Bike Show, Custom Military Bike Giveaway, Ride In Show, stunt rider Doug Danger attempt at a new world jump record, biker games, and “run what ya’ brung” flat track racing. Hundreds of vendors, according to organizers, are set to sell anything that can be bolted on, worn, wrenched or eaten by motorcyclists.
