Mountains, Music and Motorcycles is a family-friendly, motorcycling-enthusiast event featuring a poker run, biker games with prizes, free concerts, great food, vendors, a bike and car show, and even a biker church service on Sunday!
Mountains, Music and Motorcycles began in 2004 as a homegrown effort with no budget and only 350 motorcycles appeared that first year. By 2010 the event was attracting an estimated 10,000 motorcycles. This year, over twice that number are expected to roar into town to celebrate what has grown into a major festival for Mountain View. Mountains, Music and Motorcycles is still volunteer run with considerable of its proceeds going towards the March of Dimes, ABC, and the Arkansas Childrenâ€™s Hospital.
Even though a “biker” event seems quite the contrast for a town known primarily as the folk-music capitol of the world, people travel from as far away as Canada to attend – and the town returns the favor, welcoming attendees with good food, music, and a friendly atmosphere celebrating motorcycle-riding passion.

Mountains, Music and Motorcycles Lodging
Mountains, Music and Motorcycles is a huge event for the area, and lodging will disappear fast so, if you’re planning on attending, you’ll need to get your reservations in, like, yesterday! When looking for a place to stay in or around Mountain View, don’t forget the locally owned and operated, Arkansas bed and breakfast inns. Hearty breakfasts, personalized service, unheard of amenities, and insider’s knowledge about where to go, what to do, and what to avoid. Now THAT is hospitality.
