The 2015 LA Calendar Motorcycle Show continued its now 24-year tradition at the Sagebrush Cantina in downtown Calabasas, California. Featured were top Celebrity Custom Bike Builders from across the globe competing in the Calendar Bike Building Championship, selected Vendors and Exhibitors, Calendar Girl Music live performances, and a Sagebrush Cantina Taco Lunch Buffet included with admission. The Calendar Motorcycle Show again benefited the American Cancer Society with a portion of each Admission Ticket being donated to help find a cure.
Everyone in attendance complimented the new Sagebrush Cantina location for the Show with its rustic Spanish architecture and charm for the Calendar Motorcycle Show, offering a huge large shadowed outdoor patio, ample tables and chair, and providing an up-close and intimate venue where builders and fans could hangout and interact through the day. The permanent music stage and sound system sounded incredible with the live music shows. And there was ample parking for bikes and cars in the on property parking lot. The Cantina management loved hosting the Calendar Show, which now seems to have found the perfect location in greater Los Angeles after the economy downsized the motorcycle industry and fan base.
The Calendar Motorcycle Show featured many of the world’s top Pro and Amateur custom street bike builders in attendance with their newest 2-wheeled creations of rolling art to compete in the Calendar Show Bike Building Championship for fame and awards including the coveted Best of Show Trophy. The Calendar Show provides a broad focus for all motorcycle enthusiasts including the growing Collector Bike Market with Exhibitors and Bike Show classes for classic European, British and Japanese motorcycles, along with American V-Twins and Customs. Show Entries will be placed in a Concourse display on the Cantina’s large outdoor event patio.
