Autumn is an exciting time in Northwest Arkansas.  The changing of the colors of the leaves is breathtaking, Arkansas Razorback Football officially begins, and the rumble of motorcycles  can be heard in the Ozark Mountains.  It's Northwest Arkansas' most attended event of the season.....BIKES, BLUES, AND BBQ.



One weekend each fall, Dickson Street starts to rumble as motorcycles descend upon Fayetteville for the annual Bikes, Blues & BBQ motorcycle rally.

In it's 19th year, the festival began in 2000 as a charity poker run event with more than 200 riders, and has grown rapidly through the years. Today, Bikes, Blues, & BBQ is the world's largest charity motorcycle rally and has donated over $2 million to local charities that assist women, children, and members of the Northwest Arkansas Community.


More than 400,000 people attend the rally from all over America. The festival isn’t only for those riding in on two wheels – there’s also the Frisco Inferno BBQ Competition, tons of live music and plenty of vendors. Other activites include a car show, helicopter rides, pro bull riding, a pie eating competition, pro wrestling, and a jalapeño eating contest.

With it's location in the Ozark Mountains, Fayetteville acts as the perfect backdrop for the rally, with several options for scenic rides on well-maintained roads.

So rumble on Northwest Arkansas and welcome Bikers and Bike lovers to Bikes Blues and BBQ.
