Gingerbread Houses will be available to decorate for $20.

Guests will also be invited to check out an audio-guided experience that dives into Harley-Davidson history, demos on kid-size electric balance bikes, H-D® IRONe™, airbrush tattoos, LEGO kits and more. The Shop will provide complimentary gift wrapping and special gifts with purchase (while supplies last) and the chance to win a $250 shopping spree.

Ugly sweaters

Older kids and adults will dig the Ugly Sweater Party, taking place at MOTOR® Bar & Restaurant Saturdays December 11 & 18 from 5 to 8 p.m. The seasonal soiree, which encourages guests to wear the season’s tackiest attire, takes place at MOTOR® Bar & Restaurant during the weekly BBQ & Blues night. Both nights include live music:

Saturday, Dec. 11: She’s Right - He’s Left
Saturday, Dec. 18: Andrew Gelles Trio

Before the event, guests are invited to cruise through the H-D Museum and do a little holiday shopping which includes complimentary gift wrapping, gifts with purchase (while supplies last) and special deals throughout The Shop. Plus, guests can register to win a $250 shopping spree.


Finally, when you share a photo or memory to your personal social media using the hashtag #MyHarleyTradition this month, the Harley-Davidson Foundation will donate $10 to the United Way. No purchase necessary; the H-D Museum just wants to share in the joy of the moments, stories and traditions that warm the heart this holiday season.
