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 the annual Bikes, Blues & BBQ motorcycle rally.

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 underserved members of the Norwest Arkansas Community.
