History of the Blessing of the Bikes

The Dayton Blessing of the Bikes, established in 2000, is a non-profit charitable organization operated by a group of dedicated volunteers. The Blessing takes place on the third Sunday of May every year at Kil-Kare Raceway in Xenia, Ohio (the event was formerly held at the University of Dayton's Welcome Stadium).  The average attendance is 7000-8000 motorcycles. 

All net proceeds benefit GreeneBucs/AMBUCS. Greenebucs - Greene County Chapter of Ambucs - mission is to provide help and support for people/children with disabilities throughout our community.

20th Anniversary

The annual Dayton Blessing of the Bikes event celebrated 20 years of blessings, camaraderie, and friendship among motorcycle enthusiasts and the community at large on May 16, 2021. Take a look back here. We look forward to seeing all of you at the next Blessing of the Bikes!


This annual event is dedicated to all​ ​Veterans and raises proceeds for Greenebucs - Greene County Chapter of Ambucs - whose mission is to provide help and support for people/children with disabilities throughout our community.

A Message from the Chairman

I am happy to announce that, as of right now, the 2023 Dayton Blessing of the Bikes is a GO! We will keep the event as a “GO” unless directed otherwise by state officials, which can happen even at the last possible second. Status update changes will be posted here, as well as on our Facebook page, so check back often. I once again believe we will be able to make this year’s Blessing one of the biggest and best events that we've had yet. I encourage everyone to come and have a good time. Help us spread the word and tell all of our friends, family and co-workers to come and join in on the festivities.  
Thank you and I hope to see everyone at the 2023 Dayton Blessing of the Bikes.
Lawrence S. Taylor
