 VICTORY PARTY, STOMPIN TOM, CANADA'S HEROS PART OF 8TH MOTORCYCLE FESTIVAL

 

The 8th annual Atlanticade motorcycle festival will kick off in Summerside, Prince Edward Island on Friday, June 27th with a party atmosphere thanks to Victory motorcycles and Advance Motorsports, the official dealer principle for New Brunswick and Prince Edward Island. Canada’s original five day motorcycle festival, expected to attract participants from across North America, will take place June 27th to July 1st.

The festival opens at noon on the 27th with the official opening around 6 pm followed by a “Victory party” inside the big tent going from 7 to 10 pm that evening.  There will door prizes, live entertainment provided by Browns Avenue, and Victory motorcycles on display both in the tent and on the festival grounds. 

Charlie Arsenault, owner of Advance Motorsports and the lead singer with Browns Avenue,  will have the band rocking at their best predicts festival chairman Dale Hicks. 

For the first time the festival grounds will have a huge tent on site to house live entertainment, food, refreshments and bike displays. 

“This will provide more of a festival atmosphere at our headquarters site and also be a huge benefit should the weather decide not to cooperate” explains Hicks. “Of course with our shuttle service participants will be able to take full advantage of the social activities and not have to worry about getting back on their bike”. 

Hicks is planning to have a special activity in the tent each of the four nights and is excited Victory, in cooperation with their regional dealership, has come forward to kick things off on opening night. 

Canada’s original five day motorcycle festival is expected to attract participants from across North America and will take place in Summerside, PEI from June 27th to July 1st.  

 STOMPIN TOM ON STAGE

Break out the stompin’ boots and grab a swig of the shine because “The Ballad of Stompin Tom” will open on Saturday evening June 28th to coincide with the 8th annual Atlanticade motorcycle festival. 

The play, which had significant input from Connors prior to his passing, portrays an adult version of Stompin Tom putting on a concert with many of his most popular songs. It veers off throughout on various vignettes from his childhood and teen years spent roaming the country. 

His home spun - grass roots lyrics shot Conners to Canadian icon status and his classic “Bud The Spud” provided a lighthearted look into the potato industry for which PEI is famous. Of course his hockey theme “The Good Ole Hockey Game” continues to ring out at hockey arenas across the country during the winter months. 

There will be three levels of seating available for the show with front rows going for $65.00, mid-range seating at $47.50 and rear section seats available for $32.50. Registered participants to the motorcycle festival will get reduced prices through the Atlanticade value coupon booklet which will see savings of $15, $10 and $5 off respective level seating. 

“Stompin Tom is an iconic Canadian and his life story as depicted through this stage show will be something everyone will want to see” predicted Atlanticade organizer Dale Hicks. “We are excited the opening of the show is being held during our event. It is just another aspect of our event you can’t experience elsewhere”. 

The show will run until the end of August. Information on the show, times, and seating can be found at www.harbourfronttheatre.com       

EVENT THEME RECOGNIZES CANADA’S HEROS

. Over the past two years Atlanticade introduced a theme to give focus to the event. In 2012 it was “A Salute To The Military History of PEI” and in 2013 paid tribute to first responders “Everyday Heroes”. The 8th annual gathering of motorcycle enthusiasts will notice several distinct aspects. 

 Firstly 2014 is a full-year celebration on PEI as the province marks the 150th anniversary of the signing of the agreement to create a country, which occurred three years later in 1867. 

 Secondly, you will notice more CAV members in attendance this year as they hold their annual general meeting. Of course CAV has always had a strong representation at our event but it will be increased this year given the hosting of the national meeting in Summerside. The CAV organization has been lobbying the Province to dedicate a portion of the provincial highway system, “Highway of Heroes”. Their efforts have been rewarded and the official announcement will be coming soon with the actual dedication to take place during Atlanticade. 

 Highway of Heroes, is all about paying tribute to those Canadians who paid the ultimate price during the Afghanistan mission in efforts to preserve freedom for others. As part of this highway dedication the “Portraits of Heroes” display will part of the weekend activities. 

 Atlanticade, in conjunction with the CAV organization, Confederation Bridge, and the Province is working out the details of a moving tribute to honour these heroes of freedom as part of the Confederation Bridge Cruise. Details will be announced soon!

 Finally, the freedom of the open road, wind in your face and the blending of one with “Mother Nature” is something we all embrace say organizers. 

 Whether you reflect on the creation of a democracy some 150 years ago, pay respect and gratitude to those who have sacrificed for the freedom of our country and others abroad, or simply absorb the feeling that comes with the open road, the concept of “freedom” will be at the forefront at Atlanticade.

Touring Atlantic Canada's Smallest Province

 

Wood Islands, PEI

Welcome to Motorcycle Prince Edward Island's home page.  Our website is designed to introduce you to one of the world’s great Islands where the riding is super, the people friendly and the services first rate.

 

Our web site resulted from the incredible reader interest in our print guide to motorcycling in Canada’s smallest province which we published for three years. In fact, your interest was so high that it became more than our small creative team could handle. Since 99% of the requests for the guide arrive via the internet, we decided to make our Guide immediately available to everyone - allowing us to reduce expenses and labour so that we can spend more time out doing what we love to do best!

 

Another reason for turning to the web is the ability it gives us to keep current with our events calendar, bring the latest news and advertiser specials, and even include input from readers.  These are exciting additional services!

 

 All pages of the web site are printable, as is our handy printable directory that will pack easily in your saddlebags.  As well, stop at any advertiser or Visitor Information Centre once you arrive in Prince Edward Island for a mini-directory and map - ask for Motorcycle Prince Edward Island.

 

Prince Edward Island, located in the Gulf of St. Lawrence on Canada’s east coast is connected  by bridge to New Brunswick, or by ferry to Nova Scotia and the Magdalene Islands, Quebec.

 

Our ‘roads less travelled’, beautiful scenery, active motorcycle community’s many events, and simply great accommodations, eateries, night spots, theatre, festivals, and more all combine to make Prince Edward Island a great destination. 

 

We do ask that you check out our advertisers and mention our name when you visit.  These folks welcome you to drop by during your tour.  They have supported our efforts to introduce our home province to motorcyclists everywhere.  We have been careful to select advertisers who offer quality service and products to ensure your stay is one to guarantee good times and memories that encourage your return.

 

 We urge you to explore the many great components of the Motorcycle Prince Edward Island website.  You may well be surprised at everything we have to offer!
