Prism Supply Co. and DicE Magazine are holding their second annual Congregation Show this Saturday, April 14th. It’s a can’t-miss event for anyone even remotely into vintage motors, or the people who toil under them, or ironworking, or Carolina barbecue, or local beer, or live music, or Charlotte food trucks, or… Well, basically, you can’t not go.
A massive indoor invitational motorcycle show and gathering held at Charlotte’s Camp North End, The Congregation Show is the second collaboration between Prism Supply and Los-Angeles-based DicE Magazine. The event will showcase over 120 motorcycles and 30 traditional hot rods, celebrating the history and engineering of these complex, intimidatingly beautiful machines—all while highlighting the talented builders breathing new life into this trade today. This year’s other vendors—which hail from all over the States—include Harley-Davidson, TC Bros, Chop Cult, The Rodder’s Journal, and Croig. Highland Brewing and spiced rum drinks from Sailor Jerry are on beverage duty, while OooWee BBQ and Chilaka Taco Lab will ensure that all the motor obsessives stay good and fed.
It’s a big deal, with vendors, volunteers, and patrons coming from all over, but The Congregation Show is imminently local. With the original 2017 event, the passionate folk behind the get-together hoped to inspire and encourage a sense of community within the motorcycle industry, while also embracing the state and the city they call home. If last year’s turnout and this year’s expected patronage are any indication, Prism Supply is certainly channeling community… and then some.
The event is open to all ages, tickets are available at the door, and kids 13 and under get in free.
