Johnstown's annual Thunder in the Valley® motorcycle rally is held the fourth weekend in June, centered in downtown Johnstown and the surrounding Johnstown area. Located about 60 miles east of Pittsburgh, Johnstown is accessible from State Routes 219, 56, 403, 22, and 271. Johnstown offers numerous hotels and lodging options, which fill up quickly due to the large number of Thunder in the Valley® out-of-town guests. Call ahead to make your reservation so you don’t miss this event! Hotel information can be located on the “Stay” page of this website. *Please note: Although hotels appear sold out online, they likely are not. Please call the hotel on the telephone to make your reservations.

This year, Peoples Natural Gas Park will be a ticketed venue on Friday and Saturday. General admission will be available at the gate for $5, but you can also pre-purchase your tickets NOW to get faster access to the park. All you need to do is show us your ticket at the gate for your wristband and you're good to go for the day. You may leave the park and re-enter as long as you're wearing your wristband. General admission will also provide you with access to our headline entertainment like Colt Ford, Hairball, Whey Jennings, and Jasmine Cain and other great bands like The Swearing Hats, The Stickers, Van Waylon, and more!
If you want to be in the front row, we have $25 Premium viewing area tickets which will also be available for our main acts, Colt Ford and Hairball. These tickets will go up for pre-sale on Friday, May 21st at 6PM. They are VERY LIMITED and will sell out fast, so don't delay!
