About the Rally


The 8th annual Tilley Harley-Davidson Biker Blues & BBQ Rally and BBQ Classic will be held at Tilley Harley-Davidson of Salisbury, September 14 and 15, 2018. This family-oriented event is a Kansas City BBQ Society sanctioned event. This event will bring together sponsors, vendors, first class entertainment, the general public, and motorcycle enthusiasts for an admission-free event.  Not only will we host this event free to the general public, our goal is to have our proceeds support our event charities.

With almost 70 teams coming from many different states and all across North Carolina to compete for the title of Grand Champion, the 2017 event was one of the largest team participation events in North and South Carolina. Estimates of attendance for the 2017 event have been estimated at over 4,000 people attending over the two-day event. Past events have documented people from as far away as Delaware, California, Maryland and Florida have come to enjoy the festivities. The event will also provide an opportunity to meet and speak with nationally known barbecue competition cooking teams.

We are expecting the 2018 event to be even bigger and better than any event ever held in Rowan County and Salisbury. We also anticipate this event to become one of the largest Kansas City Barbecue Society sanctioned events in the Southeastern United States. Our event quickly became recognized as a premier KCBS event and our Grand Champion each year has been invited to participate in the “American Royal World Series of Barbecue” in Kansas City MO.
