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 non-profits with funds raised during the rally.

Since 2000, Bikes, Blues & BBQ has generated over $1,300,000 for local non-profits.

Among these are such diverse groups as the Sequoyah Kiwannis, the Fayetteville Lions Club, the Fayetteville High School Band Boosters, and Boy Scout Troop 122.  To learn more about the organizations supported by Bikes, Blues & BBQ, click on the links below or contact them at their mailing addresses. Please also keep these worthwhile causes in mind for your own charitable giving.
