THURSDAY SEPTEMBER 8TH THRU SUNDAY SEPTEMBER 11TH
We are excited to announce the return of the Geneva-on-the-Lake Thunder Zone at the Landing Festival Marketplace. This year’s rally opens on Thursday September 8th and runs through Sunday, September 11th.
After ten years of hosting the Thunder Zone down the road, we moved to this new location in 2019 – and it’s turned out to be an AMAZING SUCCESS and BETTER than we could have ever hoped for. Known as The Landing Festival Marketplace, the new THUNDER ZONE is adjacent to the Firehouse Winery and includes the Sunset Bar and even a ferris wheel – all RIGHT ON THE WATER! It’s truly one of the most beautiful location in Geneva-on-the-Lake offering amazing views of the lake and incredible sunsets – and it’s right on the strip, in the middle of all of the motorcycle activities! It’s directly across the street from Yankies and the Goblin Ampitheatre and within minutes of both Sportsterz and The Geneva State Lodge. It’s walking distance from the entire RALLY!
In terms of draw, nothing tops the lake and the scenic views from this shoreline park-like setting. There’s NOT a better location in GOTL to park your bike and enjoy the lake. Additionally, we have live entertainment throughout the weekend and several popular bars and restaurants are encompassed by the area. The famous Firehouse Winery and their outdoor patios and scenic dining is on one end of the property and the Sunset Bar is in the midst of the vendor area at the other end. Murphy’s Pub and Game On! Arcade and Sports Pub are adjacent. All make this a centrally located spot that riders know recognize as their best place to park and hang out throughout the weekend.
On Saturday, September 10th – the 12th Annual Geneva-on-the-Lake Thunder Zone Bike Show presented by Thunder Roads Ohio and ReasonsToRide.com will be held at the Landing. The Bike Show is a focal point for motorcycle enthusiasts attending the rally and everyone comes by – regardless of the weather! It draws unique show bikes from throughout the Midwest – and this year, we are offering a $500 GRAND PRIZE for the Best of Show Bike – in addition to trophies and placards for show winners and participants. In 2019, the additional space and convenient access, the show was easily our largest ride-in show ever! Thousands came through and enjoyed the shoreline show.
In ADDITION – this year, we are adding a TATTOO CONTEST on Friday and a weekend long WINE RIDE that ends at the Thunder Zone on Sunday. Also – we are also drawing for a Raffle Bike Giveaway on Sunday.
All-in-all, we expect this to be one of the biggest and best events of the year – and we’d like to invite you to join us on the water for the 2022 Geneva-on-the-Lake THUNDER ZONE!
