Bike Rally Proceeds Benefit NWA Charities

Many bikers and Fayetteville residents might not realize that proceeds from Bikes, Blues & BBQ benefit northwest Arkansas charities.
Over a decade, the rally has raised more than $500,000 for charities, according the BBB website.

Fried Day Down on Dickson Street

Funnel cakes, Philly cheesesteaks, barbecued ribs and deep-fried pickles; if there is any weekend to indulge, Bikes, Blues & BBQ is the time. The annual event brings infinite amounts of deliciously buttered, fried and sweetened food – a fattening culinary Heaven on Dickson Street.

Bikers Move In, Residents Move Out

As bikes roll into town, some residents roll out. Bikes, Blues & BBQ, which has the crowd and traffic impact of three Razorback home games in just one day, comes to Fayetteville once a year. As some residents leave town, skirting crowds that pour into the heart of Fayetteville, others use the event as an opportunity to make money.
