Palm Springs American Heat Motorcycle Weekend is an event so hot it sizzles. You’ll find stunt shows, kickin live entertainment and retail vendors galore.
Palm Springs is a great place to play. It’s bounded by lush mountain ranges for the perfect ride and tours of the desert cities. Live music rocks throughout the weekend along with plenty of activities. Open to all motorcycles. A portion of the proceeds from the Palm Springs American Heat event benefits local charities.
Year after year, this group of motorcycle enthusiasts continues to return to Palm Springs and patronize our shops, hotels and downtown businesses.
Downtown Palm Canyon, from Amado to Arenas, is cordoned off for people to enjoy the festivities. There will also be more law enforcement on patrol. Though this event historically does not get overly rowdy, there are still more police on hand just in case.
Palm Canyon will be closed from Amado to Arenas from 6 a.m. Friday until 11 p.m. Sunday. American Heat’s hours of operation are Friday from noon to 8 p.m., Saturday from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.
Benefits of registration include free VIP parking in prime locations on Palm Canyon, free t-shirt, ride pin and hog tags, free entries in ride-in shows and bike competitions, free VIP parties, free entries in poker walks and runs and reduced hotel rates.
