New location for J&P Cycles’ 36th anniversary Open House Rally
J&P CYCLES will be holding its 36th anniversary Open House Rally at a new location on June 27-28. This year the Open House Rally will not be at the company’s headquarters, instead it will take place 10 miles north of Anamosa at the Jones County Fairground, in Monticello, Iowa.
The move to a new location follows a change of format at last year’s Open House when live bands were added to the schedule. The new location for the 36th anniversary Open House has a built-in stage, as well as generous grounds and indoor display space.
“We’re excited about this year’s event,” said J&P Cycles General Manager, Zach Parham (son of co-founders John and Jill Parham). “Space has been an issue for us the last few years, and the additional space the Jones County Fairgrounds provides, including a large, permanent stage is fantastic. We think our customers and those in attendance will agree. A huge thank you goes out to the Jones County Fair Manager John Harms and the City of Monticello for their support in this move.”
Attractions at this year's Open House will include a free concert on Sunday, June 28, featuring rock band Great White, while the live music line-up for the Saturday is yet to be announced. In addition to concerts, visitors can see Cowboy Kenny’s Steel Rodeo, a freestyle motorcycle exhibition and visit the displays of the 100 plus motorcycle parts and accessory manufacturers who will be on-site.
