2021 MOTOBLOT Pin-up Contest

Shifting the traditional beauty pageant to better serve our community

As the new dates of MOTOBLOT (August 27-29), the Midwest moto-community is beginning to rally again in excitement. Held in one of the oldest districts of Chicago, the outdoor, 3-day festival is a celebration of motorcycles, hot rods, riding and wrenching. Style crafted in steel and chrome as well as fashion made of denim and leather is also on display.

Against the backdrop of rocking tunes and revving engines, our contestants of the 2021 MOTOBLOT Pin-up Contest will command the main stage on Saturday, August 28. A popular attraction of the weekender, the contest draws from all backgrounds and styles, offers a chance at the grand $1,000 prize and is a great opportunity to be seen, heard and highlighted.

“This year especially, we looked for more ways our contestants would benefit from being involved. Many are artists, business owners or take great interest in important causes.” – Larry Fletcher, MOTOBLOT founder

This year, MOTOBLOT invested big by providing each of the 20 contestants a personalized promotional video. Onsite, the contestants will have a tent area dedicated to connecting with fans and promoting who they are. They’ll share their confidence, fashion and passions from the mains stage over three rounds. Event attendees will have the opportunity to vote for their favorites and then for our winner.

“Our contestants are a big part of the culture, style and artistry of our event. Each year we look to evolve the pin-up contest to ensure it is relevant to what it means to be a modern pin-up.” – Donna Touch, event manager
