Bikes, Blues & BBQ Rally in Fayetteville

The 8th Annual Bikes, Blues & BBQ Rally will be rolling into Fayetteville October 3rd through Saturday, October 6th this year. It’s a popular event with something for everyone from the long-time Harley enthusiasts to the novice “wannabes” and everyone else looking for family fun. Last year more than 300,000 people attended and this year will no doubt be even bigger and better.

If you’ve never been to the Ozarks at this time of year, that’s reason enough to make your way here. The weather is about as close to perfect as you can wish for with warm days, cool nights, and average temps in the 70s. The fall foliage is an added bonus. Leaves are usually turning colors at this time and the drive to Fayetteville is beautiful.

Fayetteville is located only six hours from Dallas and St. Louis, five hours from Memphis, four hours from Kansas City, and two hours from Tulsa, Oklahoma and Branson, Missouri.

Obviously the rally itself has motorcycles of every description, plus vendors, free musical venues, and BBQ cookoffs. There is a parade, a raffle featuring a $19,000 Harley-Davidson, a poker run, the Johnsonville Big Grill that’s so big it can grill 2,500 brats an hour, the Miss Bikes, Blues & BBQ contest and much, much more.

In addition, the rally is good, clean fun. A lot of effort goes into keeping it family friendly and in keeping with community values. Fayetteville is a beautiful city that welcomes all its visitors so come on down and join the fun.

Perhaps best of all, Bikes, Blues & BBQ is a non-profit organization that donates proceeds to area charities. When the 2006 rally was over, about $150,000 was donated to local charities.
