Festival organizers putting the focus on an event in 2021
Bentonville, Ark. (July 7, 2020) – Bentonville Bike Fest 2020 has been canceled. After careful monitoring of the current situation, organizers and vendors did not see a way to deliver the festival the community deserves in 2020.
Bentonville Bike Fest appreciates the continued and growing enthusiasm for the cycling scene in the region and we thank our event sponsors, organizers, vendors, and especially all those who share our love of bikes. We were looking forward to seeing so many new people who have embraced cycling during this time, however, we look forward to gathering in large numbers for Bike Fest next year.
“The best interests of the festival attendees, riders, vendors, and staff will always be our top priority,” said Bentonville Bike Fest Founder Kenny Belaey. “We’re putting 2020 behind us and planning for Bike Fest ’21. Please be safe and stay tuned for updates later this year. Keep the pedal to the medal!”
Bentonville Bike Fest 2020 was originally scheduled to take place May 1-3 in conjunction with the Bentonville Film Festival, then rescheduled to August 7-9.
