Any person or property owner making temporary provisions for vendors, parking, signage, entertainment, food and beverage tents, or campgrounds must apply to the Motorcycle Technical Review Committee/Special Events for approval under the provisions of chapter 195 and Appendix A. Chapter 195 is adopted pursuant to the authority granted by RSA 47:14, or any other applicable statutes. The purpose of this chapter is to provide for the orderly, compatible and safe use of public and private property during any special event and to provide for adequate parking, sanitary facilities, utilities and public safety services.

Any person or property owner making permanent land alterations for the purpose of supporting Motorcycle Week activities shall be required to apply to the Planning Board under RSA 674:43 for site plan review. These activities may include, but are not limited to, the following activities: tree stumping, re-grading of land, excavating/filling of land, graveling or paving a grassed, dirt or graveled area.

Completed applications are forwarded to the Licensing/Special Events Committee for review. The Committee shall review the application, hold a public hearing and act to grant final approval, with specific conditions, or denial of the application. A quorum of four members of the committee is required to conduct a review meeting.

If you are a vendor looking to rent a vending spot, or have any licensing questions, contact Licensing at 603-528-6331 for assistance.

If you are a property owner who wishes to rent out space on your property during Motorcycle Week, an application and approval is required. See below:
