2024 National Rally Vendor Marketplace & Sponsorships

Connect with motorcyclists from all over the nation at "The Wicked Good Maine Event," BMWRA's national rally to be held Labor Day weekend

August 29 – September 1, 2024
Fryeburg Fairgrounds | Fryeburg, Maine USA

Fryeburg is a quiet little western Maine town tucked beside the Saco River, in a region that offers millions of acres of diverse landscape chock-full of memorable rides!

The BMWRA rally vendor and sponsorship program has two goals. First, we want to provide an opportunity for our rally attendees to interact with and purchase from vendors whose products are related to our motorcycle experience. Second, and just as important, we want to provide a positive environment for our vendors to make sales and promote their brands.

Why should you join us this year in Maine?

Hundreds of engaged motorcyclists in one place.
Our members are anxious to get on the open road, and this part of New England is the PERFECT soul food for them and their rides. We are expecting a big crowd—ticket sales so far are on par with last year’s record-setting early registrations!

We prioritize YOUR satisfaction.
The RA’s vendor/sponsorship team believes that members and supporters are family—family we enjoy hanging out with and whose contentment is key to a successful gathering.

Fryeburg Fairgrounds in Fryeburg, Maine

Fryeburg Fairgrounds is the versatile, easily accessible home of the historic Fryeburg Fair held every autumn since 1851. The Vendor Marketplace will be housed in the expo center, an interior space central to the fairgrounds. Seminars will be held at the Little Red Schoolhouse and/or Old MacDonald’s Farm.

The small, charming town is nestled beside the Saco River and, from certain vantage points, provides spectacular views of the Ossipee Mountains, Mt. Chocorua, and the eastern White Mountains. Evans Notch lies to the north and Pleasant Mountain to the east.

Grand moto-adventures await! New England riders welcome rallygoers with open arms and big smiles. It’s a foodie paradise with Vermont cheese, New Hampshire syrup and fresh fish and lobster from the coast. You can ride the Green Mountains to the White Mountains, then go to the coast—all in just one weekend!

Lodging Notes for Vendors


Free Tent Camping

Your rally participation includes three nights of primitive tent camping if you wish. Please let us know the number of tents you’re bringing for your team—email Ed Desimone at ed_desimone@hotmail.com with the details. We do not limit the number of campers or tents.

Vendors may set up as early as 10am on Wednesday, Aug 27, and you should clear your campsite no later than noon on Sunday, Sept 1. We are sorry, but additional days or nights are not possible within the limitations of the venue contract.

Comprehensive details are found in the Location+Accommodations tab at bmwra.org/rally24.


RV Camping

Stay in your RV on the rally grounds in comfort at an economical cost! Amenities include RV hookups, electric power, and potable water at each campsite. Dump stations nearby. If needed, onsite buildings house bathrooms and showers. Maximum cost is $55 per night for 1 or 2 nights; after that, the longer you stay, the less you pay per night.

Comprehensive details are found in the Location+Accommodations tab at bmwra.org/rally24.



We don’t recommend camping offsite—there’s plenty of space for camping conveniently on the rally grounds! Comprehensive details are found in the Location+Accommodations tab at bmwra.org/rally24.



Comprehensive details are found in the Location+Accommodations tab at bmwra.org/rally24. After you have officially been accepted as a vendor, you may request instructions to unlock a list of our lodging partners located close to the rally. Cost begins around $105 per night. This list is not necessarily exhaustive, so a good old-fashioned Google search may prove fruitful.


We try to set a schedule that will make the vendor area accessible to everyone and still let the vendors have an occasional break to have a little fun of their own.

Wednesday, August 28
You must load in on Wednesday since the Vendor Marketplace will be open early on Thursday. The rooms will be open at noon and will stay open until at least 5PM.

Thursday, August 29
Official opening day for attendees.

Friday, August 30
This is our “long and late day.” It gives the attendees who have been out all day the opportunity to visit the vendors, and it gives vendors a morning off. I know this is a bit of a slog but you came to sell stuff and build relationships so no one can say that we weren’t open. Since this is a long day, we have “Booth Sitters” so you can take a break as needed.
Noon – Vendor Marketplace opens
8:00PM – Vendor Marketplace closes

Saturday, August 31
9:00AM – Vendor Marketplace opens
5:00PM – Vendor Marketplace closes to attendees; remains open for vendors to break down and load out

Application Form

Sponsorship is a great way to stand out from the crowd. It shows your support for the event and the attendees. It’s a great opportunity to directly interact with customers and to reinforce your image in the minds of the folks who buy your products.

Your ideas are often better than ours. If you have an idea for a promotion or tie-in event please let us know. One year, for example, Wunderlich sponsored a tour of their facilities and a lunch for our attendees on Friday. We’d like to help make your idea a reality.

Premier Event Sponsor

Want your brand to have a truly prominent presence at the rally? We have one slot for a major cash sponsor. You’ll be surprised at how much you’ll get for your advertising investment. Contact Todd Narduzzi at 216-924-1110 or todd@bmwra.org to discuss a custom package.

While COVID-era risks to participants is minimal as of this writing, everyone’s health and safety are still important to us! For our gathering, we will follow CDC public health safety guidelines as well as applicable federal, state, and local laws.

Particularly in the indoor vendor areas, gathering in groups may increase the risk of exposure to viruses. Before you leave home, we encourage you to…
• Get your flu shot.
• Get up-to-date with your COVID vaccines and booster shots.
• Test regularly as the most effective way to detect COVID and isolate if you are infected.
• Review current CDC general and COVID-related guidelines for travel

Our goal, as always, is to have a fun AND safe rally. If you have any questions about the rally as it pertains to public health, please contact rally co-chairs Drew Alexander at drewalex@verizon.net or Jill Veverka at jillrncnp@hotmail.com.
