We’re excited to announce that the Colorado Motorcycle Expo is all set for 2020! It will be held February 1st and 2nd in the National Western Complex in downtown Denver. Formerly known as the Colorado Motorcycle Show & Swap, the Expo has been held annually in Denver since 1978. After starting at the Adams County Fairgrounds, the Expo moved to the National Western Complex in the early 1980’s, and it draws people from all over the country. Among motorcycle enthusiasts it has a large and loyal following with 20,000-25,000 people attending the event each year.
The 2020 Expo is especially exciting, because it marks the beginning of a new era with a new owner, Scott Schulz. Scott is a life-long motorcycle enthusiast and accomplished businessman. A North Dakota native, Scott considers himself a true Coloradan, having lived in the Greater Denver area for the past 26 years. When not preparing for the next Expo, you can find Scott either out riding (most likely the V-rod), in his garage restoring his classic Mustang and F100, or spending time with family and friends.
For several years the motorcycle show & swap had seen attendance and vendor participation go down due to a variety of issues and the staff is working full time on this event, spending as much time as possible in the motorcycle community, building relationships, and gathering and implementing feedback from vendors and attendees alike.
Scott’s mantra for the 2020 Expo is “New vision, Same tradition.” In order to ensure the Expo exceeds all expectations in 2020 and beyond, Scott is has brought back previous owner Jack who will help us implement the traditions that the riders loved and the new visions for this new decade.
The Expo has chosen several charities this year Expo to ensure that we give back to the community. For 2020 we have chosen BACA, BikerDown Foundation and another charity to be determined.
Scott is committed to maintaining and improving upon the core elements that have made this an amazing event for the past 42 years. This means bringing together bikers and all who love motorcycles to buy and sell parts and motorcycle goods, display and view amazing motorcycles, and have one hell of a party!
The 2020 Expo has 3 main components:
- The largest indoor motorcycle swap meet in the country,
- The largest custom & antique motorcycle show in the Rocky Mountain Region, and
- Live entertainment and other attractions, like live bands, on-site tattooing with competitions, wet T-shirt contest, used bike corral, and so much more. It’s a fantastic event you won’t want to miss.
