Butler Bikes & BBQ -- CANCELED for 2020 -- Will Return in 2021

BUTLER COUNTY, PA (July 31, 2020) – Butler County Tourism & Convention Bureau’s new event, “Butler Bikes & BBQ” has been canceled.  The event was to be held at the Butler Farm Show Grounds located on Route 68 west of Butler on September 17-20.  The event will be rescheduled for 2021.

“We find it necessary to cancel the 2020 event as we have continued concerns about Covid-19 and its effects on the country.  Under the current guidelines/restrictions, we felt that we could not maintain a safe environment for our guests and residents.  We made a very difficult decision to try again next year.  We are looking forward to showcasing Butler County in this exciting way in 2021” said Jack Cohen, President of Butler County Tourism & Convention Bureau.
