Gowanda's Hollywood Happening 2017

Gowanda Harley Davidson is sponsoring 1 Wheel Revolution again this year. If you didn’t catch them last year, then be sure to catch this motorcycle stunt show involving H-D bikes right on Center St., downtown. In Jest with Nels Ross will be at this year’s event with a brand new Oddball show in the Theater on Saturday and Sunday. We will have the crowd-favorite Wicked Glenn Tattoo Contest on the Main Stage and our Hollywood Theater/ J.C. Seneca Foundation Charity Ride and Ride-in-Bike Show sponsored this year by Snyder-Farey Allstate Insurance Agency.  Gowanda Harley Davidson will have the H-D ® Demo Fleet at the shop.  And of course we have the Beer and Bands. There is something for everyone.

1 Wheel Revolution:  This year Gowanda will play host to an eye-catching, professional rider, narrated, V-twin stunt show that will boggle the mind. Come down and see this Montana-based group perform all sorts of tricks on Harley Davidson motorcycles. They will be joining the Bike Parade on Friday and performing 3 shows a day on both Saturday and Sunday right on Center St. You can even join them on a short bike run around the area at 4pm on Sunday June 5th.

The Music:  We have an exciting lineup again this year with a variety of music for everyone. Friday afternoon is our annual Hometown Showcase featuring local up-and-comers. On Friday night come hear local favorites Turbulence. Saturday will feature Mid Life Crisis and the Boogie Monsters, and Saturday night, Wolf’s Run is proud to bring back legendary Lynyrd Skynyrd drummer Artimus Pyle and the music he helped make famous. On Sunday we have the acoustic phenoms Darkwater Duo and finishing out the weekend, hear Wasted Whiskey pushing the boundaries of Country music.

The Rides:  Join us On Friday evening, June 2nd as we kick off this year’s Hollywood Happening with our annual bike parade. Be one of many who take part in this event annually. Line up will start about 6:30pm at the Gowanda Harley-Davidson shop on Zoar Valley Rd. The parade will leave about 7pm and finish in downtown Gowanda in time for the Opening Ceremonies.  

We are excited to continue the partnership of the JC Seneca Foundation with the Hollywood Theater to put on a great charity ride this year on Saturday June 3rd.
