The world is being rocked by COVID-19, and all the little ripple effects that it’s leaving in its wake. While we’ve been hoping that COVID-19 wouldn’t mess with our plans, that’s not the case this year.
We’ve been monitoring the guidance of public health officials and advisories from our local and national governments. With the announcement that large gatherings and festivals are not permitted to be held in New Brunswick, we are sad to announce that #BRB5 will not take place this year.
Our #1 priority is the safety, physical, and mental health of each you, your families, and communities. We miss hugging our moms, meeting pals for coffee, and we CAN’T WAIT to get our bikes on the road. We sincerely hope that these measures will help keep us all safe and healthy so we can enjoy #BRB5 in 2021!2021, BABY!That’s right, we are already planning for a proper post-quarantine celebration. Our fifth year may be postponed, but that just means we have extra time to prepare for the fun, shenanigans and burnouts that 2021 will bring! SAVE THE DATE: July 9 - 11, 2021.REFUNDS
If you’ve already registered for #BRB5 prior to April 27th, 2020, we are offering these options:
All 2020 tickets will automatically be valid for #BRB5 in 2021.

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)
Must be 19+ (please bring a valid photo ID)
Always wear a helmet
No fireworks or weapons
Please be respectful of the property so they'll let us continue to party here year after year.
And most importantly, ABSOLUTELY NO DRINKING AND RIDING! The organizers of the Backroad Ball, Four-Up Babes, the owners of the property at 45950 Homestead Road, Salisbury, 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 renting 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 and trailers should be in place before motorcyclists start to arrive.
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 always on the lookout for sponsors who are interested in showcasing their delicious beverages. Stay tuned for sponsor announcements!
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?
The Country View Motel, the Atlantic Motel and the Scenic Motel are all within a 14 minute drive from the venue, on the same road as the Backroad Ball! Room rates range from $60 - $120. Shuttle service TBA.
Can I transfer my ticket or get a refund if I can’t come?
Sorry, we are unable to 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!
You may transfer your ticket as long as registration is open. Once registration is closed, we need to finalize our master list of attendees so transfers are not permitted after this date.
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. If a ticket was transferred to you, please ensure that we have the updated attendee information before registration closes.
