Nelson Tasman Motorcycle Festival (New Date)

Friday 3rd-Saturday 4th May 2024


KMC are working with Nelson City Council and Tasman District Council to host an event for both Adventure Bikes and Road bikes that both showcases our region to visitors, and also allows local Adventure riders to enjoy access to a variety of off road trails that would not normally be available. Road bikers will be catered for with 2 days of scenic roads throughout Nelson and Tasman while taking part in Poker runs and mini events individually or in teams of 4. The festival will be held on Friday the 3rd and Saturday the 4th of May culminating in an evening with a band outdoors in Nelson.

In this first year we are capping Adventure bike riders at 50 bikes and road bike riders at 50 bikes. Being located in the middle of New Zealand we hope to attract a number of riders from outside of the region and are working with the Interislander Ferry service to provide discounted rates for participates.

Each bike will need to be vetted by local motorcycle shops leading up to the event and stickered with sponsors logos to verify their participation.
