BENTONVILLE, Ark. (BRAIN) — The Bentonville Bike Fest has been moved from May to August because of health concerns and travel restrictions created by the COVID-19 virus.

The three-day event was scheduled for May 1-3 and now will be held Aug. 7-9.

“We appreciate the continued support from our partners, sponsors and the community,” said Kenny Belaey, event organizer. “Although the dates have changed, we are still on track and moving forward with our scheduled plans.”

All purchased tickets will transfer to the new dates. For more information, go to bentonvillebikefest.com.

“The safety of our visitors is always a top priority,” said Kalene Griffith, president and CEO of Visit Bentonville. “We support the Bentonville Bike Festival’s decision to postpone its event until August of 2020 and look forward to hosting cyclists later this year for another fantastic festival.”

The festival, in its second year, features races and workshops and is held in conjunction with the Bentonville Film Festival.
