Admission is free to this vintage motorcycle and scooter rally, hosted by Ton Up NC annually on Labor Day Weekend in Durham. The event has evolved from its humble beginnings in 2005 to a multi-venue, multi-day rally drawing thousands of enthusiasts. 2019 marks the 15th edition of the Bull City Rumble. The historic Lucky Strike Tobacco Warehouses in Durham’s Brightleaf District serve as the backdrop for the annual bike show on Saturday, where judges are not necessarily looking for the prettiest and cleanest machines, but who are looking for well ridden bikes with personality and craftsmanship.
