BikeFest provides great motorcycle entertainment and takes place July 11 and 12. The Seaside Convention Center is the site for specialized vendors, artists, and custom bikes. BikeFest is open to all motorcycles and also takes place on the downtown streets of Seaside.
Expect to hear bands playing Saturday afternoon. There will be poker runs and walks and beard, tattoo, and bike awards. BikeFest is one of Seaside's newest events and continues to gain in popularity.
Another event, Wheels & Waves car show, takes place in Seaside September 5 through 7. This event shows off many styles of Hot Rods and Custom Cars, and is limited to custom-made vehicles built before 1962. Wheels & Waves offers the unique atmosphere and culture from American history that the cars represent.
Other Wheels & Waves' activities include a show n' shine, poker run and walk, concert, kite festival, and more. It should be a great event for the entire family.
