Bikes, Blues & BBQ Gives Back to the Community.

Rally with a Purpose.

From the very beginning, the founders of Bikes, Blues & BBQ realized that although the three festival components of the rally — bikes, blues and barbeque — would be enough to put on a great event, so much more was possible. They wanted to hold Bikes, Blues & BBQ to a higher standard and give it a greater purpose.

With that in mind they designated Bikes, Blues & BBQ as a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to supporting local charities with funds raised during the rally.

Information about BBB Supported Charities.

Since 2000, Bikes, Blues & BBQ has donated over $600,000 to local charities. In  addition, each year the rally helps local charities generate considerable funds by “working” the rally in various ways, organizing their own events, or receiving space to promote their causes.  Among these are the Sequoyah Kiwannis, the Fayetteville Lions Club, the Fayetteville High School Band Boosters, and Boy Scout Troop 122.
