Motorcycle Show at Tradex in Abbotsford

The Motorcycle Show is an event that usually features all kinds of motorcycles including BMWs, Harley-Davidsons, Hondas, Kawasakis, Suzukis and Yamahas. Other brands you’ll also see are Argo, Royal Enfield, Ducati, Piaggio and Polaris.


What to Expect

At the Vancouver Motorcycle Show you can expect to see crowds of people, hundreds of shiny motorbikes and all kinds of motorcycle gear including protective leather clothing and Harley Davidson souvenirs. Expect it to be noisy at times too, plus lots of fun (assuming you like motorbikes).

In addition to all the vendors and motorbike displays, at the event there are also training sessions and stunt shows some years. However, this didn’t appear to be the case in 2024.

Tips & Advice

Below are some tips to help you make the most of your experience at the Vancouver Motorcycle Show.

TIP #1: Parking is usually free for motorbikes during the show, but $10.45 for vehicles. If you take your car and only plan to be there for a couple of hours, it’s cheaper to park next door at the airport. At the airport head to the hourly parking section. The spaces there are actually closer to the Tradex building than ones at the far end of the actual Tradex parking lot.

TIP #2: So long as you get your hand stamped when you leave, after paying admission you can usually come and go as much as you like all day.

TIP #3: Especially if taking kids, be sure to time your visit with the stunt shows in years that they happen.
