Bikes Blues & BBQ returning to Fayetteville in 2021

The group's 21st rally will occur on September 22-25, 2021, in Fayetteville after last year's event was canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — Bikes Blues & BBQ announced Tuesday (March 30) that Northwest Arkansas' largest motorcycle rally would be returning in 2021.  

The group's 21st rally will take place on September 22-25, 2021, in Fayetteville. 

Bikes Blues & BBQ was canceled in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

"We are extremely thankful that we can invite folks back to experience what makes our rally so special.  Not only do we have the best rides in the country, we are also a rally with a purpose.  Our purpose as a 501c3 Non-profit is to support our local charities.  In our first 20 years we have donated over $3,000,000 to these groups and have stayed true to that mission even without a 2020 rally.  Our good friends at Harley Davidson donated a motorcycle for us to raffle and with those funds we were able to support all of our 2019 grant recipients!  All that said we are open for business and can't wait to welcome back old friends and make new ones with this years rally!  Ride on, ride safe, and come partake in our rally with a purpose," rally organizers posted on their website.

Bikes Blues & BBQ is pegged as the world's largest charity motorcycle rally that benefits women, children and underserved members of the Northwest Arkansas community. 

Rally organizers have not released any details about Covid-19 safety protocols required for the 2021 event.
