Hot Harley Nights

This incredible event supports the Make-A-Wish® South Dakota, and has raised over $2 million dollars so that children with life threatening illnesses can experience a “wish come true.” 

Last year, the 19th Annual Hot Harley Nights was held July 10-13 in Sioux Falls and raised over $172,000. The event featured a huge motorcycle parade spanning over 6.7 miles in Sioux Falls, a family fun night, casino run, live music, motorcycle raffle, bike show, silent auction, a variety of great food and an outdoor party at Falls Park West.

Our first year saw 250 participants and a handful of enthusiastic volunteers. Now we expect over 40,000 enthusiasts from across the United States and Canada.

We have hundreds of volunteers and organizations who sign up to help a year in advance. Many lifelong friendships have been made at Hot Harley Nights and many, many wishes have been granted. In total, over $2 million has been raised.

Our goal is to help as many children and families as possible receive a special “wish” through Make-A-Wish® South Dakota. We thank you for joining us on this amazing journey of care, compassion and camaraderie. An event like this could not happen without people like you. As long as there are kids who need wishes, we will all have a reason to ride.

The 20th Anniversary of Hot Harley Nights is July 9-12, 2015 and it is going to be BIG and we're going to be celebrating in a very big way. We hope you will join us. Visit for complete details and schedule.

Hot Harley Nights™ involves a casino run, motorcycle parade, live music, raffles, bike show, silent auction, great food and an outdoor party at Falls Park West. As always, our goal is to expand the event, draw more people, raise more money, grant more wishes and have more fun. We hope to see you there!
