The Steel Horse Rally welcomes you!

 The Steel Horse Rally Inc. is a non-profit 501(c)3 established in 2015 to benefit local charities. The first Rally was held May 1st & 2nd, 2015 in Fort Smith, AR and raised thousands for local charities with an attendance of more than 30,000 people and a local economic impact of more than $4.2 Million. In four short years, the attendance has grown to an estimated record of more than 75,000 motorcycles and 100,000 people attending, according to the Fort Smith Advertising & Promotion Commission. The local positive economic impact of the 2018 SHR is estimated at $17.8 Million.

The rally continues to serve as a charity event open to all, and honors “all who serve.” Because of the success of the 2018 Steel Horse Rally, the charity was able to donate more than $30,000 to local charities in addition to in-kind donations including booth space at the rally. Charities that received charitable donations from the Steel Horse Rally in 2018 include the Buddy Smith Veterans Home, ARC of the River Valley, the Fort Smith Museum of History and the Children’s Service League.

The Steel Horse Rally has received several local and regional awards for being an outstanding community event and for having great live entertainment. An annual tradition in Fort Smith, AR, the Steel Horse Rally boasts the Thunder Through the Valley Motorcycle Parade, Vendor Village, motorcycle racing, charitable motorcycle rides, concerts, and helping more charities each year.
