The festival will be held near Thomspon Boat Center, 2900 Virginia Ave, NW, Washington, DC 20037.

Parking: There is a decent amount of parking on K Street along the Georgetown Waterside, directly below the Whitehurst Freeway.  This is metered parking.  There are also parking garages for use too.  The closest paid lots are in the Watergate Complex, Washington Harbour, and at the Kennedy Center.

Hope to see you all there!!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
