See you in 2021!

We have missed seeing everyone's smiling faces at all the events throughout the year, and we were looking forward to throwing a massive celebration in honor of David Mann to top off this crazy year. Unfortunately, due to COVID, the Ventura County Fairgrounds and the City of Ventura have decided to halt all events with no end in sight. We feel strongly that things will be back to normal next year, so mark your calendar for December 12th, 2021. Take this extra time to get inspired and create your favorite Dave Mann style Chopper/Painting so we can showcase your work next year.
Thank you for your continued support!
The David Mann Chopperfest Team,
David, Tory, Christina, Sean, Jennifer, and Lisa

The Ross Tomas Award Winner

Congratulations to Mike Rabideau (@majikmikesdesigns) for winning the Ross Tomas Award gifted by Ross' awesome parents Mike and Carolyn. Award created by Sonny Boy.

Reposted from @kiwiindianmotorcycles - "Chopperfest is always a great show and somewhat hard to do for me as it was my late son Ross' favorite show. He would work with the organizers making sure things would go smoothly and if he were alive today he would have his own bike build in the show. The organizers Dave and Tory honor Ross with a special award every year. Majik Mike (Mike Rabideau) was the winner of the Ross Tomas memorial award with his very fine Knucklehead. Congratulations Mike on a very fine build and being a very nice guy."

A Note Of Thanks From Tory

Our goal for the Chopper Fest has always been to create a platform for artists and builders to showcase their talents while inspiring future generations. The art and bike show had so much talent, and the love for Dave Mann was evident with all the tribute art on display. This year's event was met with some challenges, we had some tough decisions to make, and I personally want to thank everyone who lightened the load weighing on my mind with their positive, upbeat attitudes despite the weather. Thank you to our sponsors and EVERYONE who came out to support our 16th Annual Motorcycle Art and Culture Show. See you next year!
