Northeast Motorcycle Expo Exits Boston Home


BOSTON – Kev-Marv Productions, promoter of the Northeast Motorcycle Expo series of winter motorcycle shows, is apparently seeking a new venue here after opting out of the Seaport World Trade Center location that it has used for years.

In an online announcement linked from a Facebook post on Sunday, Kev-Marv Productions reported, “New safety requirements imposed on our show by the venue, the spiraling cost of doing business in downtown Boston, and the burden of exorbitant parking fees have prompted this decision.”norteast-motorcycle-expo-logo-2

The announcement added, “Kev-Marv are sorry to see the Boston show end, but have nothing but great memories and stories.”

The Boston edition of the Northeast Motorcycle Expo was staged Jan. 9 and 10 this year. Other shows were Jan. 30-31 at the Rockingham Race Track in Salem, NH and Feb. 20-21 at the Shriner’s Auditorium in Wilmington, MA.

Kev-Marv began some 20 years ago and has staged shows in various locations in New England and beyond. The post said a slate of 2017 shows will be announced this month. “We will come back re-branded; with a lower ticket price, regional venues and free parking.” the announcement stated.

Meanwhile, an older post on the company’s website said, “Our hope is to increase to include Hartford or Springfield soon, and find a suitable location on the South Shore of MA or Rhode Island.”

A phone message has been left with Kev-Marv Productions seeking more details.

  1. It would be nice to have a bike show back in CT again and I have tried reaching out to them to look into the CT convention center.
