Birdeye Gravel Festival in Birdeye, Arkansas
November 3 - November 5$150
Birdeye Gravel Festival combines and showcases everything unique about being in the Arkansas Delta. A combination of gravel riding, music, camping, local food, southern hospitality, and a little bit of everything in between. The festival is based on an 8-acre farm with a home built in 1903 serving as the hospitality headquarters.
This event is a fundraiser for the Crowley’s Ridge Gravel Trail Project. The gravel trail will be a 250 mile bikepacking route to support the prosperity of rural Arkansas through adventure recreation. Crowley’s Ridge is a geographic region spanning from southern Missouri to the Mississippi River at Helena Arkansas. Born by windblown glacier dust hitting river fog in the days of the woolly mammoth, this unique ecoregion is elevated 250 feet above the surrounding Mississippi Alluvial Plain. The trail will traverse Crowley’s Ridge connecting Missouri to Marianna. Continuing past Marianna the Crowley’s Ridge Trail would pass through the St. Francis National Forest south to Helena before connecting to the existing Delta Heritage Trail.
