Harley Days in Morzine this Summer
This event in Morzine is legendary, larger than life and loud!
With the return every other year, the Harley Days Morzine event get bigger and better each year.
Running form the 11th to the 14th of July 2019 the H.O.G team (for those unawares that stands for- Harley-Davidson Owners Group!) organise this special event to allow all enthusiasts and members of the club to come together in one big bike celebration.
For the entire week, thousands decent on the sleepy mountain town and take over the streets, roads and bars to celebrate all things Harley.
The event is so popular now that people from all over the globe come to attend. Theres plenty to see and do during Harley Days and most of the events and displays are totally free!
For those brave enough why not try out one of the test bike tours that follow the twist and turn of the mountain roads? Or for something more tranquil visit the Harley fashion show. Theres also a huge market down the Rue du Bourg (Morzine's main high-street) consisting of biking gear and memorabilia as well as other relevant goodies. Plus a daily parade through the streets that see the thousands registered for the tour races through the streets with fanfares and flags- not a sight you often get to see, the whole town comes together and the streets are lined with cheer leaders and
They also have a variety of bike displays and demonstrations of daring fortitude, such as the Mur de la Mort - a speculator display in a huge cage showing off some seriously brave and darling bike skills.
The event is rounded off each evening with the HUGE stage on the town square by the tourist information office where they host live music form bands all over the world. Priori years have seen the likes of Simple Minds, Status Quo and TOTO. Needless to say this event gets LOUD but it comes with an incredible buzz that echoes round the town creating a really exciting memorable atmosphere.
They have also installed a huge bar and late night club down near the towns Carrefour in a big event tent, so whilst things are loud and late -that exactly what the visitors to this event are looking for!
