Due to Covid Bikes Blues BBQ Rally 2020 has been canceled. Below is the information before the cancellation on the 21st annual motorcycle event. Every year there are approximately 250,000 attendees that come to Fayetteville and the surrounding region for Bikes Blues. In addition, there are a lot of locals that come out to enjoy the motorcycle rally.
Next, Bikes Blues BBQ Motorcycle Rally is the largest rally in state and it is also one of the largest rallies in the United States. In 2020 the family-friendly BBB is on the LightningCustoms.com’s Major Motorcycle Rallies List.
Bikes Blues & BBQ Rally Schedule of Events
The four primary venues for Bikes Blues Barbeque are on Dickson Street, Washington Fairgrounds Saloon, Baum Stadium, and Arvest Ballpark. As the name implies, there are tons of bikes and riders to check out, lots of local and regional blues bands, and some awesome BBQ.
In addition, there are number of other popular events during the motorcycle rally. The 2020 Bikes Blues BBQ schedule of events will include a bike show, BBB Championship, car show, poker runs, Miss Bikes Blues & Barbeque contest, and tattoo and art expo. Other attractions include parties, Harley raffle, motorcycle parade, demo rides, bull riding, big rig setups, and lots of vendors. Last but not least is the awesome riding terrain in the Ozarks.
Next, every year Bikes Blues & BBQ donates on average $85,000-$110,000 to local charities. Note: the $85,000 is based on the amount of the BBB Rally Facebook page ($1.6 million/19 years) and the $110,000 is based on the BBB website ($2 million/19 years). Although the annual donation works out to be about $.25 per attendee (400,000 attendees/$100,000), the total amount of money does help charities.
