Hog Daze Rally Canceled

  • Indiana Motorcycle Preservation Society Announces Cancellation of Annual Event, Hog Daze, Due to Coronavirus (COVID-19)

    Marion, IN - Due to the ongoing developments resulting from the corona virus, the Indiana Motorcycle Preservation Society (IMPS) announced the difficult decision today that the 2020 Hog Daze event is cancelled.

    “The IMPS board of directors did not make the decision to cancel lightly. We are excited to unveil the fruits of our labor over the last year. We crafted an event that will celebrate Marion’s motorcycle heritage unlike any Hog Daze event before. Unfortunately, now is not the time for the big reveal,” said Loretta Tappan, President of the IMPS Board of Directors.

    The organization is not able to adhere to this year’s strict guidelines as an event host with limited resources. Hog Daze 2020 presented by IMPS was scheduled for Friday, August 7 through Sunday, August 9.

    “It is heartbreaking to have to make this announcement. We extend our sincere appreciation to the vendors, volunteers and performers as they prepared for the event over the past year as well as our event participants, venue and sponsors who were primed to celebrate with us,” said Tappan.

    Ticket holders, vendors, and sponsors will be contacted with options including contributing the value of their tickets or fees as a tax-deductible donation, receiving a reservation for next year's event, or obtaining a full refund. As a tax-deductible charity, IMPS is particularly grateful for donations during this challenging time.

    Tappan stated, “Ultimately, the organization is committed to continuing to promote Indiana's rich motorcycle history, specifically Marion's unique claim to fame as the 'Home of the Hog', and we are
    looking at ways we can do that throughout the year.”

    IMPS thanks patrons for their patience and apologizes for any inconvenience this may cause.
