ARE YOU READY TO MOTO-ADVENTURE?
It's time to unite the female motorcyclists of Eastern Canada and beyond for The 2nd Annual Backroad Ball! Don't miss this weekend of rad music, winding roads & badassery. Gates open on Friday, June 16, at 4 p.m. Campers must be packed up and kick stands up by 11 a.m. on Sunday, June 18. See you there babes!
Ticket price includes:
- 2 nights of camping (bring yo’ camping gear!)
- Access to portable toilets & handwashing stations.
- Live music, new friends & dancing under the stars!
- Maps of incredible route options throughout southeastern New Brunswick.
- An event souvenir.
Are there any rules at The Backroad Ball?
Don't worry, there aren't many rules! But to foster an environment that is safe and welcoming for all ladies, we have just a few:
- No dudes (sorry guys)
- No 'tudes
- No glass
- Must be 19+ (please bring a valid photo ID)
- Always wear a helmet
- No fireworks or weapons
- The private home onsite is off-limits. Please be respectful to the owner's property so he'll let us party here year after year.
And most importantly, ABSOLUTELY NO DRINKING AND RIDING! The organizers of the Backroad Ball, Four-Up Babes, the owner of the property at 12583 Route 114, Penobsquis, New Brunswick, the vendors and sponsors are NOT responsible for injuries to any person or damage to personal property. We want to have fun this weekend – please be SAFE!
I am only coming for one night, do I still have to pay full price for a ticket?
Yes! We are using the venue for the entire weekend and do our best to compensate our entertainers well. We can’t afford to give any discounts.
Do I get a specific spot assigned to me?
No, spots are not assigned but you are guaranteed a camping space. Once you arrive, you will register and then be flagged into the moto area if on two wheels. Only motorcycles allowed in the camping area. Cars and other vehicles must be parked in the designated separate area.
Should I bring water and food to The Backroad Ball?
It’s up to you! There is a gas station, motel/restaurant and a take-out snack bar within a 5 minute ride of the location. We also plan to have a couple food options on-site (bring cash) and tap water will be available. Be sure to bring your own water bottle at the very least.
How about booze?
The weekend is a BYOB situation, however, we are hoping to have a sampling sponsor for 2017 as we did with PEI Brewing Company in 2016. Last year on Saturday evening they provided free samples of some of their products and we hope to have something similar set up again.
Cash, credit, or debit?
Cash is king this weekend! While most restaurants, cafés, shops and gas stations in the area will likely have credit and debit, we can’t guarantee that our on-site vendors and food options will be able to accept plastic. Please ensure you have cash on you – there will be no ATMs on-site.
What if I don't want to camp, but still want to party?
Timberland Motel provided deals to our attendees as well as a shuttle service to and from the event groups. We hope to do the same again -- more details on this soon. There are other local motels and hotels in the Penobsquis and Sussex area (you would be responsible for your own *safe* way back to bed after partying Saturday night).
Can I transfer my ticket or get a refund if I can’t come?
Sorry, we are unable to transfer or refund tickets. This event is completely non-profit, so know that your support (even if you can’t make it) has helped us to throw the best moto-weekend for our maritime biker babes!
Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?
No need - you'll be on the list. Please ensure that the name you registered with matches your name on your valid photo ID.
