Watch for This: Coming in Fall 2019

Coming Soon in Fall 2019: The annual Bikes, Blues and BBQ festival, fall Arts and Craft fairs, an exciting new season of Arkansas Razorback football and so much more!

When the temperatures get cooler and the leaves start to change, that means a new season of fun is making its way to the region. Don’t miss these annual signature events coming to Northwest Arkansas this fall!


Come autumn, hundreds of thousands of motorcyclists from across the country roll into Northwest Arkansas for Bikes, Blues & BBQ – the largest charitable rally of its kind in the nation! This year’s rally is Sept. 25-28, 2019, featuring live music concerts of all genres on multiple stages across Fayetteville, poker runs across the Ozarks, hundreds of vendor booths, award-winning BBQ and more – it’s an epic week you won’t want to miss!

Northwest Arkansas has long held a rich arts and maker culture, and every October we are home to some of the premier arts and crafts fairs in the country! Stroll through thousands of booths with contemporary, juried, country-styled, vintage, holiday-themed and indie items at fall craft fairs held region-wide.


Sports fans come from all over the state and beyond for Razorback football at the beautiful University of Arkansas campus in Fayetteville! The Hogs will open the 2019-20 season against Portland State at Donald W. Reynolds Stadium — which debuted a multi-million renovation last year with new premium club seating, more field-level lodge boxes and other fantastic amenities. Visit
