Supported by Italian Auto Icons, this year’s Festival of Italian Motorcycles will be held on Sunday, November 11.

The annual celebration of Italian motorbikes will have extra significance this year, as it will take place on Armistice Day, which commemorates the armistice signed in 1918 between the Allies of World War I and Germany in France, to end the war. 

With more than 400 bikes on display, last year’s festival was Victoria’s biggest all-Italian bike event in almost a decade.

While the festival has taken place since 2003, the 2017 event was arguably the best in almost 10 years, due to an impressive turnout of motorcycles, wonderful weather, and a number of improvements to the day.

Event officials expect last year’s record crowd will be exceeded on Sunday, as bike enthusiasts flock to Carlton to admire rare and iconic vintage models of Italian motorcycles and scooters from all eras.

Make sure you don’t miss out on all the excitement!

Public access is free from 10:00 am to 4:00 pm.
