The cross-Canada motorcycle show circuit is coming back for 2022. Power Sports Services, the company that manages the Motorcycle & Moped Industry Council’s industry-focused shows, has confirmed shows for Toronto, Montreal, Calgary, and Vancouver next winter.
The show season will start with a weekend in Calgary, on January 7-9. From there, the show moves to Vancouver, for January 21-23. The show then pivots to the east, with a February 18-20 show at Toronto, closing with a Montreal show on February 25-27.
Although the circuit normally has shows in Edmonton and Quebec City, those events have been postponed for 2022. The Power Sports Services website says they will return in 2023.
All the events will run in their usual locations. The Calgary show runs at BMO Centre, the Vancouver show runs at Tradex (in Abbotsford) the Toronto show runs at Enercare Centre, and the Montreal show runs at Palais de congres de Montreal.
The main page of the shows’ website says “We are excited to announced the return of the 2022 Motorcycle Shows. The kick-off to spring 2021 wasn’t the same without our annual get-together. It’s time to safely get back to the excitement, buzz and camaraderie of live events. Come get your fix of two-wheel, three-wheel and four-wheel action and interaction. Stay tuned for more news as we plan and prepare for the return of the Moto Shows.”
Practically speaking, we can expect some sort of entry restrictions based on COVID-19 vaccination status, but given that we’re in a federal election right now, and all the rules are likely to change in coming weeks anyway, there’s no point in announcing a complete plan at this point.
