The 2019 Barber Vintage Festival marks the 5th year that we’re the official apparel sponsor of the place-to-be for all things vintage motorcycle in the US. Whether you’re there to race on the renowned road circuit, bang bars on classic motocross bikes, jump boulders in trials competitions, scour the massive swap meet, or just visit the world’s largest museum collection of motorcycles, check out our essential Ws to get the max out of your festival weekend.
The Barber Vintage Festival is one of the most anticipated motorcycle occasions in the world. The three-day event is held annually across the massive Barber Motorsports Park in Birmingham, Alabama, and it only gets better every year.
While the focus of the weekend was created by the AHRMA (American Historic Racing Motorcycle Association), the scale and features of the event quickly grew to include other forms of historic racing, classic bike shows, exclusive custom motorcycle presentations, moto-centric attractions, food, family and fun!
George Barber opened this motorsports mecca in 2003, and not long after began this gathering of vintage racing motorcycles. Now in it’s 15th year, attendance has grown to over 70,000 racers and enthusiasts, all showing up to compete, engage with motorcycle manufacturers big and small, all interacting with custom bike builders and private vintage collectors alike.
With panel talks and lectures by notable artists, racers, respected industry professionals and motorcycle celebrities, there’s always someone interesting to meet over the weekend..
Barber Motorsports Park is a 930 acre destination for all things motorcycles. At its center is a world-class 2.38-mile, 16-turn road racetrack. With multiple rounds of AHRMA vintage racing across several disciplines (road, motocross, trials) held over the weekend, it is a can’t miss for any classic motorcycle fan.
The true heart of the facility, however, is the Barber Vintage Museum.
The world’s largest collection of motorcycles (as validated by Guinness World Records in 2014) has over 700 bikes on display on multiple floors, all basking under natural light pouring in from floor to roof glass walls. It also boasts the world’s largest collection of Lotus sportscars and is so highly regarded in motorsports that Porsche and Mercedes both have offices on-site. Regardless of the festival weekend, a visit to this impressive facility should be on every motorcyclist’s bucket list.
Held this year from October 4th to 6th, Barber Vintage Festival is 3 days of non-stop action. With countless highlights on the program, ranging from the multiple FMX or vintage daredevil stunt shows to technical seminars in the museum, there is a surplus of activities and things to see.
The coveted Barber swap meet (folks wait years to get a vendor spot), OEM demo rides, classic motorcycle parades, custom bike shows, and not to mention, the fierce racing happening over the festival can leave you with a jam-packed weekend schedule. But it’s totally worth it.
