Michigan favorites will lend their musical talents at the Jackson Fairgrounds and as part of the outlying community festivals. “The support from the communities has been outstanding,” says Thrills Festival organizer Pat Collins. “People, businesses and organizations are coming together with creative ideas and enthusiastic promotions, which will enrich the overall programming of the Thrills Festival.”

Highlighting the festivities offered by several area communities are: a salute to the Armed Services and Veterans, motorcycle drawing, poker run, movie night, street closings and events, social areas and beverage tents, vendors, exhibits, battle of the bands, custom bike builders, motorcycle stunts, contests, promotions and more!

“Each community has unique events scheduled that cater to the diverse preferences of attendees. Whether you are on a motorcycle or in a car, and plan to visit one or all of the festivals, the short distance between each community is marked by beautiful scenery and historic landmarks. There is something for all tastes,” continues Collins.

The Thrills Bike Festival caters to the motorcycle enthusiast and is held in collaboration with The Wheels of Thunder, a rally in honor of the Armed Services and Veterans.
