The Petrolettes is an all-female annual motorcycle festival, this year taking place from 26. – 28. July. It’s the first festival in Europe of its kind, namely women only. Located in Germany between Berlin and Leipzig in Ferropolis, that is also known as the city of iron, the festival provides a unique space for women to connect through the spirit of the motorcycle world. The festival is growing every year in its size and reputation. It is an event truly reflecting fire and passion for the motor sport and helping female riders to realize their full potential on the road.

All women over 18 are welcomed at the Petrolettes weekend. The festival offers ride outs through beautiful sceneries with winding slopes, together with hundreds of women. Additionally a race takes place every year where the Petrolettes push the throttle.

What used to be a former mine, Ferropolis is a historical site surrounded with old retired  cranes and diggers. Festival guests bring their camping gear to the island and put up their tents during the festival. Furthermore Ferropolis is surrounded with water, offering a refreshing swimming opportunity. The program continues into the late night with girl bands, performers and DJ line ups for those who want to take to the dance floor after a day of riding. For those who prefer a more quiet option there is a campfire with a cozy atmosphere to relax at the end of the day.  

For those interested in joining in on this unique opportunity we encourage you to check out the Petrolettes homepage for more information. Whether you are an experienced rider or even just considering to start riding someday you should check out and join the fun at the Petrolettes festival!
