Thunder by The Bay Moves Closer to Downtown Sarasota

After a one-year move to Lakewood Ranch, Thunder by the Bay Motorcycle Festival will return to Sarasota in 2018.

And instead of the traditional early-January dates, the 20th annual festival is set for Feb. 15-18 at the Sarasota County Fairgrounds and Main Street in Sarasota.

Lucy Nicandri, the executive director for Suncoast Charities for Children and the director of Thunder by the Bay, said several factors went into the decision to change the venue and the date.
