Back for the third year, Calgary’s own Torch Motorcycles returns with a festival full of bikes and so much more.

Festival organizers spend the entire season finding and curating these 20 motorcycles and their builder-riders, each telling a great story, historic or brand new. For 2016 see motorcycle builds, mods, restorations, and franken-bikes alongside popular culture, engineering, and design with a film series, artwork, apparel, build education programs and presentations.

The 2016 Torch Handbuilt Festival runs September 15 to 25 at Torch Motorcycles (914 Centre St. North). All events are free with races and rallies costing $10. Head to for the full schedule.
