 Chopper Shows, Dirt Dashes, and Motorcycle Rides

Four Corners Motorcycle Rally in and around Durango

As if music festivals weren’t enough, the Durango area is hosting the Four Corners Motorcycle Rally this weekend with events throughout the region. Complete with motorcycle parades, poker tournaments, live music, and the Hooligan Dirt Dash, expect to hear a lot of choppers this weekend, and make sure to strike up a conversation. Do your best to grab tickets for the Hooligan Dirt Dash; it’s marketed as the grassroots race due to the lack of an “official sanctioning body,” making it an insanely fun and laid back race to watch and participate in. Check out their schedule so you can participate in all of the events! Here's a list of highlights throughout Durango and Vallecito Lake:
