ROT Rally Tattoo Expo
ROT Biker Rally is the largest “turnstile” motorcycle rally in the USA and one of the most highly-anticipated motorcycle events in the entire country. Thousands of motorcycle enthusiasts flock to Central Texas to enjoy amazing motorcycles, Austin nightlife and the beautiful Texas Hill Country.
The Travis Co. Expo Center is the main location for the ROT Biker Rally, an 18 years and older event, held second Thursday in June and is approximately 11 miles east of downtown Austin, Texas. Helping live up to Austin’s self-proclaimed “Music Capital of the World” title, the ROT Biker Rally strives to grace its stages with top-notch entertainment year after year.

For over ten years the City of Austin has joined in the ROT Biker Rally action by closing off 50 blocks of downtown Austin for a huge motorcycle parade and party on Congress Avenue the Friday night of Rally weekend. Prior to the arrival of the parade from the Travis Co. Expo Center, pre-parade activities will keep everyone entertained until approximately 8:15pm when the parade arrives at downtown.
