Buffalo Chip School’s Out Chopper- Saturday, Aug. 7, 2020
The first campers to ever pass through the Buffalo Chip gate in 1981 rode in on choppers, so it’s only fitting that this year’s full week of Buffalo Chip bike shows kicks off with a show for chopper lovers. Old school, new school and everything in between will be on display, plus you’ll have the chance to meet star chopper builders including “Horny Mike” and win prizes to get you going on your next chopper build.

2020 Motorcycles As Art™ Exhibit – Heavy Mettle: Motorcycles and Art With Moxie  - Saturday, Aug. 8-Friday, Aug. 14, 2020
Economic downturns and moto fads can yield a new crop of talent each year, only for those names to become forgotten by the onset of the next trend. The 38 builders in Heavy Mettle do not fall into this category, having each completed at least 20 custom builds and been in business for at least 20 years. See this one-time collection of motorcycles in the Buffalo Chip Event Center alongside photographs captured by exhibit curator and legendary motorcycle lifestyle photographer Michael Lichter over his 40-plus-year career.
