This is where official Steel Horse Rally merchandise will be located and the SHR Inc. VIB Check-In Area as well as dozens of vendors with all kinds of items, delicious food, games, prizes and even live media broadcasts!

Vendors at Cisterna Park near General Darby Statue: located in the 1000 block of Garrison Ave., next to the statue of General William Darby on a motorcycle, this location is right next to the giant American flag where motorcycles ride during the Motorcycle Parade on Saturday and near where the Cops and Cones Motorcycle Exhibition will be on Saturday morning of the rally. 

The Tradition Continues...In Fort Smith, Arkansas

The Steel Horse Rally is held the first weekend each May and the charity motorcycle event is dedicated to “All Who Serve” and helps several local charities and the community. In 2023, the Steel Horse Rally shattered previous attendance records with an estimated 210,000+ attendees for for the two-day event and a positive local economic impact of more than $24 Million. The unique setting of the Steel Horse Rally gives motorcycle riders an opportunity to park their bikes in the middle of historic Garrison Avenue - one of the widest historic downtown "Main Streets" in the USA. Attendees can park just steps away from all of the vendor areas and entertainment at the Steel Horse Rally.

Since it was established in 2015, the two-day event is one of the premiere events in the region. Each year, local charities and charitable organizations apply and several are selected to be recipients of the donations generated at the annual Steel Horse Rally. Steel Horse Rally vendor areas are located in the heart of historic downtown Fort Smith and close to all rally events and convenient motorcycle parking. The Steel Horse Rally Motorcycle Parade ends on Garrison Avenue right next to the vendor areas.

Vendor applications for the 2025 Steel Horse Rally will be available in the coming months. If you would like information about how to be a vendor at the 2025 Steel Horse Rally, please e-mail your contact information to This email address is being protected from spambots.
