The Ozark Mountains serve as a backdrop for motorcycles, music, food—and good causes


Bikes, Blues, and BBQ is set to celebrate its 18th annual rally, and they’ve been busy making improvements for this year’s event—so expect a great BBQ party. One improvement is their new website (listed below), which is jam-packed with useful rally information. The more you know, the better it gets—especially when good food, music, and motorcycles are involved.

Riding and rallying to help others

Since its creation in 2000, the rally’s been dedicated to helping improve the lives of the underserved members of northwest Arkansas communities, especially women and children in need. Over the past 17 years, the rally’s raised over $2 million for local charities. As motorcyclists, we know the great blessings of freedom and the ability to enjoy life. We also share and act on our compassion for people in need.

Great riding opportunities

The Bikes, Blues, and BBQ rally is located in Fayetteville, Arkansas, in the midst of the foothills of the Ozark Mountains. In fact, the Ozark Mountains may be one of the best-kept secrets in motorcycle riding. The region has some of the best mountain motorcycle roads you’ll find between the Rocky Mountains and the Blue Ridge Mountains. To make it easier for you to plan some great rides during your rally, visit the event website, which has over a dozen routes available, complete with downloadable maps.

Rally fun, Ozarks style

The rally is a family-friendly event with a focus on BBQ and blues music. So, after a day in the saddle, you can relax and hear some true American music. You can also expect to find your fill of good food—including some hot and spicy treats.

Bikes, Blues, and BBQ also offers lots of fun, Ozarks style, including:

  • Fayetteville firefighter poker runs
  • People's choice at the Arkansas state BBQ championship
  • Motorcycle Parade of Power
  • Whataburger Bring the Heat Contest (jalapeno eating contest)
  • Karaoke contest
  • 2018 Harley-Davidson Street Glide special raffle
  • Ink and Art in the Ozarks—including side show acts
  • Great blues music at multiple venues
