5th Annual Classic Car & Truck Show

Monster Experience Venue – Springdale Arvest Ball Park
If you weren’t there for the 4th Annual BBB Car Show, you don’t know what you missed.  We had it all, customs, street rods, vintage treasures, rat rods, even custom bicycles for the kids!  All that and vendors, a DJ, special awards, everything that goes with a great car show. This was a GREAT car show, at a motorcycle rally!

Held at the Arvest Ball Park venue in Springdale, the Bikes, Blues, and BBQ car show is rapidly becoming one of the premier shows of the mid-west with a stunningly diverse group of fabulous entrants every year.  Don’t miss the 2016 version; it’s just going to get better.

3rd Annual Ozark Vintage Motorcycle Show

The Ozark Vintage Motorcycle Association Vintage Bike Show Saturday, Sept. 24 at the Monster Experience Venue – Springdale Arvest Ball Park

Oh, man!  The Bikes, Blues, and BBQ Vintage Bike Show presented by the Ozark Vintage Motorcycle Association is simply too good to believe.  Over 150 magnificent vintage machines, many of which most of us have only read about.  Held at the Arvest Ball Park venue in Springdale, this is the third year for the show and the first two years drew both killer vintage iron and great reviews.

Aside from pristine examples of early bikes from companies that are still with us, the Harleys, Triumphs, Indians, Hondas, Yamahas, etc., there will be a few machines that you’ve only heard of, and never seen.  Or perhaps never even heard of.  Ever seen a Vincent?  We had one here that looked like it just rolled off the production line.  How about a Ward’s Riverside 125?  We had one.  And that’s just the beginning.  A true motorcycle lover can spend hours at the show marveling at these machines of yore.

The Ozark Vintage Motorcycle Assn. puts on this show each year and does a fabulous job.  This year, the show will be held on Saturday, Sept. 24, from approximately 8:00-2:00 at the Monster Experience Venue at the Arvest Ball Park in Springdale.  Don’t miss this; it’s truly one of the coolest things at Bikes Blues and BBQ.

Fayetteville Firefighter's Poker Runs

One of the most popular events at Bikes, Blues, and BBQ is the Firefighters’ Poker Run.  And just like Bikes, Blues and BBQ is the “Rally with a Purpose”, these poker runs have a purpose as well.
These runs help to support Camp Sunshine, a summer camp exclusively for children who are burn victims, often severely burned to the point of disfigurement.  Camp Sunshine is a place where these kids can just have a good time, with no one staring, no one asking questions.  They get to be just kids having a good time.  To visit Camp Sunshine is to leave with a lump in one’s throat, and teary eyed. Guaranteed.

The poker runs are fun, the routes are beautiful, the sponsor stops are friendly and appreciative, but most importantly, this is chance to make a real difference in some great kids lives.
