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 is held on the 3rd Sunday in May and in 2020, we celebrate 20 years of blessings, camaraderie, and friendship among motorcycle enthusiasts and the community at large.


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.

Dayton Blessing of the Bikes

A Message from the Chairman

I would like to welcome everyone to the 2021 Dayton Blessing of the Bikes! It has been a long and trying year for everyone with all of the trials and tribulations that came along with COVID-19…
I am happy to announce that, as of right now, the 2021 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, as we were shut down last year. But I have a great feeling that this year’s event will not be shut down.
I believe we will be able to make this year’s Blessing one of the biggest and best events we have 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 2021 Dayton Blessing of the Bikes.
Lawrence S. Taylor
Chairman
