About Tecumseh Motorcycle Festival
The Tecumseh Motorcycle Festival is an open-air motorcycle festival centered in the Johnson County Fairgrounds in Tecumseh, Nebraska, highlighting the Montz Motorcycle Museum located a block east of the Johnson County Courthouse and town square on Clay Street.
Ann "Nurse Ratchet" Clark, President of the Dream Chaserz, a chapter of the Chrome Angelz Riding Club met Bill Montz, the owner of the Montz Motorcycle Museum in early 2020. As Ann has been coordinating women's events and rides, she approached Bill about participating in International Female Ride Day 2020, but, due to Covid and an ever-growing list of registrants, the logistics became impossible.
Therefore, they decided to center all 2021 International Female Ride Day activities in Tecumseh and start a motorcycle festival. Thus, it was born.
The Tecumseh Motorcycle Festival is intended to be a family-friendly festival open to everyone. Whether you are a man or a woman, young or old, there will be something within this festival to entertain, inspire or become immersed in. With the combination of efforts between Chrome Angelz and the museum, a lot of people became interested in volunteering, sponsoring or entertaining at this event as the proceeds from this event will go to assist Magdalene Omaha serve survivors of human trafficking.
The 2021 event opened on Friday, April 30th at 5:00 pm. We had a brief opening ceremony prior to nationally recognized country-rock band Kristina Craig and Exit 148 taking the stage at 6:30.
On Saturday morning, May 1, a guided ride took off from town square in celebration of the 15th International Female Ride Day. While only 8 women riders pre-registered, the parade of motorcycles included 27 bikes ridden by women, the men who love them and a few children and grandchildren as passengers. The day will also saw fundraisers, raffles, music and comedy, culminating in an epic open air concert by Sinners N Saints. Guided discount tours of the Montz Motorcycle Museum will were available both Friday evening and all day Saturday for patrons of the festival.
