Arriving at the Sturgis Buffalo Chip participants will be greater with a reception, catered meal, entertainment, silent auction and biker fashion show. The focal point of the evening will be a concert in the famous Buffalo Chip natural amphitheater by Superstar Eric Church. Each Biker Belles™ ticket is your all includes pass for a full day and night of fun and entertainment, with 100% of rider contributions going to benefit two South Dakota Charities, Helping with Horsepower™ and Sturgis Motorcycle Museum & Hall of Fame.
“I am so excited for another year with the Biker Belles,” say’s film and TV actress Kristy Swansen. “I really enjoy the Belles event because I get to ride with good friends, make new ones, and contribute to some great local charities along the way. Plus the Belles ride ends at the Buffalo Chip with a great party, hors d’oeuvres, activities and an awesome concert by one of my favorites, Eric Church. As my husband and I always stay at the Chip during the rally, we get to keep the fun rolling all week.”

Created to raise funds for local charities, the Biker Belles event brings women, their families and friends together to celebrate the role they play in shaping the culture, sport, art and history of motorcycling.

Toni Woodruff, the Sturgis Buffalo Chip’s event coordinator for the Biker Belles, states, “We are very excited to build upon the success of Biker Belles celebration and we look forward to expanding our community of women riders and enthusiasts while contributing to South Dakota charities in the process.”
