OVMA 2nd Annual Vintage Motorcycle Show

The OVMA and Bikes Blues & BBQ Inc. 2nd annual vintage motorcycle show!

Please join us for our second annual vintage bike show being held on Saturday September 26, 2015- rain or shine- at the Arvest ballpark in Springdale Arkansas. This is an open invitation to all to bring your vintage bike(s) and show them off. The show will take place under 6400 square feet of tent in a paved parking lot. Your bike(s) will not be out in the elements, and neither will you. Improved concessions are available on site. Your trucks and trailers can be parked on the lot close by, and there will be uniformed security beginning on Friday and going through Saturday. We will have early registration available on Friday evening from 6pm until around 9pm.

Don't have a vintage bike to show? Then come on out and attend the show anyway! You don't have to own a bike to look. And it's free! Bring your mom and dad out, they will love all the old motorcycles. They may have owned and ridden some like them. 

The Show is being held during the Bikes, Blues and BBQ rally that runs from September 23 until September 26 of this year. The rally usually brings in 400-450,000 bikers, and some projections are pointing to 500,000 this year. Pair that with our MSA of more than 500,000, and your bike(s) are going to be seen by a lot of people. 

There will also be a big car show, Wounded Warrior project, live music and a fireworks show at the Arvest venue.

So, bring some bikes to show and one to ride. Spend a Couple of days if you can. Northwest Arkansas has some of the best riding in the country, and there is more to do during this event than you can possibly get around to.
