Home of Harley Davidson
Harley-Davidson has called Milwaukee home since the company formed in 1903, and it’s not hard to find the iron that still runs through the city’s veins.
There’s an unpretentious “come as you are” vibe that makes it easy for any attendee to feel like a local. With 115 locally-owned restaurants downtown and shops filled with products made by local artisans, Milwaukee is a city that still values makers, innovation and going your own way. Today, Harley-Davidson is one of eight Fortune 500 companies headquartered in Milwaukee.
Riders still come “home” to Milwaukee for the Midwest’s largest motorcycle rally each year, but the real party happens every five years when Harley-Davidson celebrates an anniversary. Tens of thousands of riders make their pilgrimage to the place where it all began, and the city practically vibrates from the roar.
Whether it’s 100,000 bikers or an intimate board meeting, Milwaukee is ready to roll out the red carpet for all visitors.
Tap into the one-of-a-kind passion Harley inspires with an off-site event at the world’s only Harley-Davidson Museum. Whether your attendees were born to be wild or not, everyone can appreciate the industrial chic vibe of the riverfront museum campus.
Inside the museum, you’ll find more than 450 motorcycles and artifacts, including the very first Harley-Davidson motorcycle (Serial Number One) and unique rides like the Elvis Bike and the Rhinestone Harley. But beyond the bikes, the museum tells the story of the extraordinary products, people and history that made Harley-Davidson an international icon.
