Events

With more than 180 festivals throughout the year, Fayetteville allows visitors to experience the city’s unique taste and culture.

One weekend each fall, Dickson Street starts to rumble as motorcycles descend upon Fayetteville for Bikes, Blues & BBQ. The annual festival began in 2000 as a charity poker run event with more than 200 riders, and the event has grown rapidly through the years.

In 2015, more than 400,000 people attended the rally from all over America. The festival isn’t only for those riding in on two wheels – there’s also the official Arkansas State BBQ Championship, live music and plenty of vendors.
