Time to make plans for Wharf Rat Rally 2017!
Another spring has arrived, if in name only!
This is the first of our series of newsletters to let you know what is going on this year at the Wharf Rat Rally, so you come prepared.
Another year of planning is underway, and as always, you can expect to be greeted by motorcycles of all makes, models and sizes and the people who go along for the ride!
And, in our thinking, a late spring means a late autumn, so the weather during the Rally is going to be exceptional, once again.
Registration Locations

Once again we will be offering a selection of locations where your $10 registration kits can be picked up.

By picking up your kit ahead of time, you won't have to stand in line in Digby to register ... just put the easy-peel-off sticker on your headlight or windscreen, fill out your ballot, and ride on into Digby.

Drop the ballot at the registration tent or Headquarters as you're walking through town to be entered into the draw. Be sure to bring your ballot along, as that's one of the ways we determine our numbers every year. And y'all know, everyone wants to know the numbers!

Our remote registration locations are listed to the right. We anticipate these locations will have kits by the end of April, except Old Orchard Inn and Rendezvous de la Baie which will receive them in August. If there is an apparel or reception desk, please ask for the kit there. As the locations receive their kits, we will post an announcement on our Facebook page.

These locations are independent supporters of the Wharf Rat Rally, so please try to have cash for the purchase of the registration kit.

We thank these organizations for their help!


Book your passage on the mv Fundy Rose now at

Last year, 267 motorcycles took the ferry from Saint John to Digby during the Rally and 402 caught the ferry back to New Brunswick either during the Rally or Monday following the Rally.

Every year, riders are turned away because the ferry is booked - we have no way of knowing how many. Don't be one of them! Book your passage now!

Thanks to AVR, our media sponsor, for the photos at the Ferry Terminal, supplied by your sister station in Saint John. For the latest updates during the Rally, be sure to tune to FM 97.7 AVR Today's Best Country or Magic 94.9 "We play everything".

After years of you asking, and us trying, we finally have someone who will offer small motorcycle repair services at this year's Wharf Rat Rally!

Please welcome V-Twin Mechanical owner Phil Axworthy to this year's Wharf Rat Rally. He'll have a "rescue" trailer down near the wharf where he can do small repairs like replacing a clutch handle or changing a tire ... enough that you should be able to get your bike home.

WRITE DOWN THIS NUMBER!  Better yet, put it right in your phone ...

Find him on Facebook.
Lucas Oil is back as one of our top sponsors again this year, and in coordination with Phil Axworthy and V-Twin Mechanical, hopes to be offering oil changes during the Wharf Rat Rally.

Be sure the stop by the Lucas Oil booth to learn about their selection of products. Get your bike in top shape for the ride home!
Watch for our next newsletters to learn about all the great things to see and do at this year's Wharf Rat Rally in Digby Nova Scotia.
