Parking and Transportation

Rally Parking Tips

The Dickson Street area of Bikes, Blues, and BBQ is located in the middle of a historic residential area of Fayetteville.  As such, many streets have designated residential parking.  Spaces numbered 0-299 are permanently reserved for residents of the area with parking permits.  Please don’t park in these spaces (tickets, towing; you know the drill).  Spaces numbered 300 and above are Fayetteville city paid parking areas.  However, for the rally duration, Wednesday-Saturday, that “paid parking” designation in the Dickson Street Entertainment District has been suspended by the city.  That suspension does not apply to the area around the Fayetteville square.

But if you are looking for very secure, and convenient rally parking, we recommend the following:

  • The Progressive Covered Parking Lot

    Progressive Insurance has secured a parking lot in the middle of the rally right behind the Dickson St. bars.  Go north on West St. from Dickson and turn in behind the Hog Haus Brewery.  Not only is it free to bikers, it’s covered, and they’ve hired security officers to make sure your baby is pewrfect5ly safe while you’re at the rally.  Progressive is going to take care of you!

  • The Deck At The Dickson

    Special event parking available for Bikes, Blues, & BBQ September 24-27. Covered parking with easy access to all the action and park as long as you want. $20 first-time entry and $10 for each re-entry.  609 West Dickson, in the heart of the rally.  For more info, call 479.966.4111

  • The Baum Motorcycle Village Parking Lot

    Park on the east side of Razorback Road at Baum Motorcycle Village, and then ride the A and M Railroad to Dickson Street.  The train will be running every half hour and it’s a lot quicker than maneuvering through the traffic and trying to find a parking spot.

  • The Churches and Civic Groups on Dickson Street

    On the eastern end of Dickson Street, before you get to the party, you’ll find several large lots manned by various churches and civic groups.  These lots are safe and secure secure places to leave your “baby”, at a reasonable cost.
