The first year of the OZ Kids Bike and Book Fest began this annual tradition with a bang! Over 1,000 people attended and hundreds participated in the first library bike parade through Bentonville downtown. 

What would a bike parade be without festive bike decorations?

The original event included the well-known Buddy Pegs jump bag, Strider Bikes skills course and Cocoon Yoga Lab flow class.

We also featured STEAM stations like crafts, building blocks and the surprise hotspot of the event, princess storytime with Jasmin!

Live music by Jukebox Confessions kept the crowd groovin. 

Pedal it Forward provided free bikes for children, complete with helmets for safety.

The inaugural year of OZ Kids Bike and Book Fest was one for the record books and we knew we would have to do it again!


The OZ Kids® Bike & Book Fest was hosted by Bentonville Public Library and the Bentonville Library Foundation and presented by Arvest Bank and The Walmart Museum. The event was in collaboration with many community partners including:  Runway Group, Ozark Outdoor Foundation, Downtown Bentonville, Inc., Jimmy John’s, Sam’s Club, Flintco Construction, BelGioioso Cheese, Rambler Sparkling Water and others.
