The Original Blessing of the Bikes
50th Anniversary of Blessing of the Bikes
Lake County Chamber of Commerce is proud to be the official organizer of the Original Blessing of the Bikes.
2022 is the 50th Anniversary of the Original “Blessing Of The Bikes”. This event started with 8 riders and 4 motorcycles in 1972 who gathered at the St. Ann’s Catholic Church. From those humble beginnings, it has grown into one of the largest events in the area. It is attended by bikers and non-bikers alike from around the country and is open to everyone. Families come to walk around downtown Baldwin and look at the bikes and bikers and enjoy the vendors and great food. This event spreads out from Baldwin to surrounding areas and provides a lot of fun for everyone.
Lake County Chamber of Commerce is the #1 promoter and supporter of the Blessing. We work hard with Para-Dice motorcycle club, the Village of Baldwin, Sheriff Department, Fire Departments, M-Dot, and many other groups and organizations to make this a great event.
If you are a vendor and would like more information about attending and setting up in Downtown Market Place please contact the Lake County Chamber of Commerce directly. We are the official organizers for authorized vendor setup in Baldwin.
