Bikes, Blues & BBQ to announce new vision, leadership team

Bikes, Blues & BBQ organizers will announce a restructuring of the annual event’s management team, new appointees to its board and a new vision for future rallies Tuesday afternoon.

In a news release, officials said the announcement will signal a significant departure from how the event has been managed over the past eleven years and how it will run in the future.

Six-year BBBQ event director Nelson Driver resigned from his position in December citing personal reasons and a desire to turn the rally over to “fresher legs.”

The announcement is set for 3 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 8 at the Fayetteville Chamber of Commerce, 123 W. Mountain Street.
