2014 Four Corners Motorcycle Rally

Four Corners Motorcycle Rally Durango-2

Ah, Four Corners Motorcycle Rally. How do we put our feelings for you into words? How about… Rowdy. Raucous. Rip-roaring. Those are all good words — but the Four Corners rally isn’t about words. It’s about fun.

The 2014 Four Corners Motorcycle Rally roars into Ignacio, Colorado, every Labor Day weekend. This year, the four-day event kicks off Aug. 29 and wraps up Sept. 1 and features events in Ignacio and nearby Durango. The rally includes poker runs, live music, tons of vendors, giveaways of two brand-new Harley-Davidson motorcycles, motorcycle demo rides (wanna try out a 2015 Harley Davidson?) and all sorts of crazy contests. Who wants to enter the Best Chest in the West Wet T-shirt contest? Or how about the Loudest Pipes or Mechanical Bull Riding contests?

This year’s rally features 10 rockin’ bands, including headliners Sam Morrison, Hillbilly Herald and Jasmine Cain. There will also be more than 15 contests that range from kid-friendly, like the Kids Mutton Busting Contest, to adults-only, like the Men’s Hot Buns Contest. (Hey, if there’s a wet T-shirt contest, there should be something for the ladies, too.)

Most of the bike rally events are based at Sky Ute Casino and Sky Ute Fairgrounds in Ignacio, although there will be plenty of opportunities to get wild ‘n’ crazy in Durango, which is about 30 minutes northwest of Ignacio. Durango bike rally events include:

Although RV and tent camping are available at the fairgrounds, there are plenty of comfy hotel rooms, including hotels in Durango. Book your room with us at the Durango Quality Inn, and you’ll just be a quick, fun ride away from Ignacio.
