There’s already a lot to look forward to in 2018 especially when it comes to riding your Harley-Davidson. This feeling of fulfilment with joy can only be bettered by riding to at least one of our many legendary events. Without doubt the “big one” in 2018 is the Harley-Davidson 115th Anniversary Celebration taking place in the magnificent city of Prague, 5th-8th July 2018.
In addition to celebrating 115 years of Harley-Davidson Motor Company are the celebrations of 35 years of H.O.G. and 90 years of Harley-Davidson Club Praha, the oldest existing Harley-Davidson club in the world!
To ensure those four days of celebration are an unforgettable experience, there’s an awful lot planned – music, fun, motorcycles and much more. To list all that’s available in making the 115th Anniversary Party an exceptional event would take some time.

We here at Dublin H-D, we know only too well that not all of our customers and friends are able to make it to Prague for the Harley-Davidson 115th Anniversary event, but don’t be disheartened if you can’t. Harley-Davidson events are part and parcel of Harley ownership and there are many more events on the 2018 calendar. Check out the following examples…
