Hello everyone. We had hopeful plans for the Thirteenth Annual Bennington Triumph Bash, but unfortunately COVID-19 intervened and has forced us to cancel the 2020 Bash. We have no choice in the matter; Vermont's accommodations are not allowed to accept reservations before June 15, and the reservations already on the books cannot be honored. It's also unlikely that restaurants will be back to normal in time for the Bash, and large gatherings will almost certainly still be banned. So sadly, for the first time since we started the Bennington Triumph Bash in 2008, we have to cancel it this year.
But we do fully intend to get back to it in 2021, so pencil in next year's dates—June 4-6, 2021—for the slightly-delayed Thirteenth (mostly) Annual Bennington Triumph Bash! We’ve gone this long as a grassroots, independent rally for Triumph motorcycle owners by Triumph motorcycle owners, and we have no intentions of stopping.
This event has been going on since 2008 because we figured it was time for us Triumph riders to have a rally just as riders of other marques have had for years. Discussions ensued on various online motorcycle forums, especially TriumphRAT.net, and the idea gained a lot of traction. The very first year, we were thrilled to have an extremely successful event with participants from across North America. People had such a great time that there was immediate buzz about doing it again the next year, and the same has happened each year since. What started out as a vague notion of a small get-together has turned into an annual rally drawing people from all over North America and even around the world. We’ve found that Triumph enthusiasts are a unique collection of amazing people, spanning the spectrum from traditional cruiser riders to twisty-devouring sport riders, from café racer-loving rockers to dirt-loving ADV riders, and everything in between—all united by our love of British motorcycles.
This website is the information clearinghouse for the BTB. The thirteenth annual event will now be held Friday, June 4, to Sunday, June 6, 2021. Please check back frequently for information updates. Use the navigation at the top of the page to get around the site. Thanks for reading, and we hope to see you in Bennington!
Please note: we will need people to preregister for the Saturday dinner so that the restaurant can prepare the right amount of food. Please see the Saturday Dinner page for more details. It’s also helpful to prepay for the Friday BBQ dinner; information on that is here.

For all lawyers whom it may concern: This event is free. It is an informal get-together of friends and like-minded souls; no profit is generated. Triumph Motorcycles is not the organizer of this event. All people attending should already understand the risks inherent to motorcycling, and they must be willing to accept those risks. The organizers of this event are not liable for any accidents that may (but hopefully won’t) occur.
