For the 12th consecutive year, thousands of motorcycles will gather from across the USA for a "Ride To Give the Children Hope" at Oak Hollow Farm, location of CMT's Sweet Home Alabama, in beautiful Fairhope, Alabama. The Rileigh & Raylee Angel Ride Foundation assists hundreds of children and their families with special medical needs.
Historically, over 10,000 bikers and music lovers attend this three-day event filled with music, auctions, drawings, food, beer and wine tents and it just keeps growing! Every year, generous businesses and individuals of Baldwin and surrounding counties outgive themselves by donating items for the silent auction and children who've benefitted from the foundation exhibit their gratitude through art in the Children's tent. 2013 will bring back the EXPANDED SPORTS BAR so you can watch the big games with more of your friends on larger screens. Also returning will be the RAISED PRIVATE CABANAS (available by reservation) with lounge seating, flat screen video, food and bar service.
Vendors, from leather and chrome to custom builders line the expo area at Oak Hollow Farm and we've gathered the best festival food vendors from across the southeast! So, whether it's bar-b-que, seafood, oriental or gator tail you'll find what you're hungry for.
Register your ride for the bike show on Saturday and don't forget to get your name in the raffle drawings for gift cards, apparel and weekend getaways at luxury resorts. The ultimate raffle will be held on Saturday night November 2nd for the Custom Built Soft Tail Pro Street Bike donated by Renegade Choppers, designed and built by the legendary "Twitch"!
There will be live music all weekend long on two outdoor stages.
Thursday evening everything cranks up at the campground with the Kick Start Party with food and live entertainment by the Modern Eldorados. Bring your own RV, camper or tent to the Campground or book a room at the Oak Hollow Lodge located on the site. Make plans to stay all weekend so you don't miss a thing! Campsites are available by first come first secured reservation. Should camping fill to capacity, local hotel partners are offering special deals to Angel Ride participants. Information about camping reservations and outside lodging can be found on the Camping page of this site.
The much loved FRIDAY NIGHT STREET PARTY will get the crowd on their feet with nonstop dance music. The bands Magic and The Ballroom Blasters will keep you dancing to Motown and Country hits throughout the evening and Fly By Radio, the 80's classic rock hair band, will "hit you with their best shot" and "rock you like a hurricane". Oh, and there's a chance that the King, himself may make an appearance. If you're an Elvis fan, there'll be plenty of 'good Rockin' Tonight' as well.
Saturday morning at 9:00AM the bike show and registration for the ride begins and the rally midway reopens for food, fun, music and more merchandise. At 1:00PM, the winners will be announced. Then at 2:30PM a roar will fill the air as the Angel Ride begins and tours the scenic roads of Baldwin County and along Mobile Bay. Live bands play all day and into the evening culminating with a Saturday night high energy party. During the day, Sugarcane Jane will keep the festival atmosphere alive. These Alabama Gulf Coast originals have toured with the likes of Neal Young, Tom Petty, Vince Gill and Dwight Yoakum, but love to come back home play for family. Saturday evening, it doesn't even pretend to slow down. Nashville's own hot new band, Black Jack Billy, will make a swing by the farm on their current Booze Cruise Tour, titled after their new chart climbing hit! SiriusXM satellite radio's new country channel "The Highway" began playing "The Booze Cruise" as a Highway "Find." and is cited as the biggest-selling song on iTunes by any band without a major record deal in the first half of 2013. As of Aug 12, 2013, the song has sold more than 100K in the US and more than 150K worldwide! You don't want to miss the opportunity to say "I danced to them live when..."! Then Tayo Reed will keep the dance music going non-stop and Departure, the Journey Tribute band won't let you "stop believing" until they've performed all of this legendary band's greatest hits.
