Canada's Most Southern Motorcycle Rally – August 3rd, 4th & 5th 2018 – All bikes are welcome.

Hogs for Hospice is a 3 Day Motorcycle Rally in Leamington, Ontario at beautiful Seacliff Park on Lake Erie. The weekend is packed full of fun and activities for everyone to enjoy. Friday night kicks off the festivities with Rib Night. Come down and enjoy award winning ribs by Team Canada BBQ, stroll through the vendors and stay for an epic concert tribute to arena rock by the band ‘Hairball’.

Saturday will start off with our signature event 'Tour the Tip' which is the organized ride to the most southern point of mainland Canada Point Pelee National Park. Team Canada BBQ will have lunch for the riders when they return, and Jason Thorne will be flying through the air on his motocross bike to entertain the crowds. Saturday night will feature one of Canada's great rock bands, Our Lady Peace. Get your tickets in advance for only $25.00.

Sunday will round out the weekend with a Pancake Breakfast followed by a church service and Bob's Biker Games.

History
The event was started by a dedicated group of local citizens who had a vision of creating a world class motorcycle event that would raise money to support a brand new Hospice campus and health care in Leamington and the surrounding communities. After 2 years of planning the first annual Hogs for Hospice rally was held in 2016. Thanks to the hard work of many volunteers and the generosity of our sponsors, the inaugural year was a smashing success raising $50,000. Bret Michaels headlined the Saturday night concert to the delight of thousands of excited fans, and hundreds of motorcycles roared along the streets of Leamington and through Point Pelee National Park. You can watch the official video of last year’s event below.

The Hogs for Hospice Committee has a number of improvements planned for this year. First and foremost all Hogs for Hospice activities will be taking place at Seacliff Park. The Municipality of Leamington is building a new Amphitheater in Seacliff Park and we are adding a second concert this year. We will bring the best in entertainment, food and southern hospitality. So, come join us for a fun 3 day weekend of Bikes, Bands and BBQ this Civic Holiday.
 

Thank You All For A Great Weekend




 

Mayor's Message

 

John Paterson

Leamington Council is excited to be the host Municipality for this new event. When approached by the organizing committee we were more than open to having these volunteers step forward and offer their time, vision and enthusiasm to organize such a wonderful fundraising idea for the new Windsor-Essex County Hospice in Leamington.

We hope this will continue to be a successful annual event and know it will help raise the much needed funding for the ongoing cost of operation of this new Hospice facility.

Welcome to Leamington!
