Will There Be A Rolling Thunder in 2021?

Yes! The name may have changed, but the mission remains the same. AMVETS will continue the demonstration ride to raise awareness of the critical issues facing the nation's veterans. Rolling To Remember will take place on May 30, 2021. Click here to see the full itinerary.

Plans are also underway for the 23rd Annual Ride of the Patriots® to Rolling To Remember®  during Memorial Day Weekend. Patriot Harley-Davidson® and the Fairfax VA Chapter, Harley Owners Group welcome you to join them for this signature event. The Ride of the Patriots® has become a highly anticipated community event and our hopes are that all bikers and bikes will feel welcome and join us for this police escorted ride. The Ride of the Patriots is an exciting three-day event spanning Memorial Day weekend. All activities for the weekend are at or begin at Patriot Harley-Davidson, located just West of Fairfax Circle on Fairfax Boulevard (Map). The Patriot Harley-Davidson parking lot is designated for bikes only during the event. The event also provides an organized staging area and safe trip for riders to the Pentagon and Rolling To Remember.

23rd Annual Ride of the Patriots® to Rolling To Remember

They ride into DC in a patriotic display in order to honor our veterans, and also to remember those lost or missing soldiers from our nation's conflicts. These heroes from across North America that ride into town for this annual event represent all types of their fellow soldiers, sailors, airmen, marines, coast guardsmen, firefighters, rescue personnel and law enforcement officers and make the event especially memorable for riders and spectators. This is something uniquely American...this is Rolling To Remember.
