After 13 years, 3 locations, Atlanticade has announced it will be returning to Summerside, PE for 2020 and beyond.
The City of Summerside will now assume the responsibility for the annual festival starting with the 14th edition which will be held from August 6th to 9th. Founder and longtime chairman Dale Hicks will work directly with the Summerside committee over the next couple of years to ensure a smooth and seamless transition of the festival that attracts motorcycle enthusiasts from across North America.
“I want to thank the numerous volunteers, sponsors, and participants over the years who have contributed to the success of the festival” said Hicks. “However, after 13 years it was time to hand over the responsibility to another group who are committed to continuing the growth of the event”.
The association with Ribfest will continue in Summerside as several ribbers will share the festival site with Atlanticade vendors and registration headquarters. Summerside had previously hosted Altanticade three years between 2012 – 2014.
