De Berge Saddlery & Western Outfitters

April 28th, 2014 by Del & Sheryl Terry

On your way down Route 40

 or towards the Grand Canyon, you have to slooooow down (15 mph) and go to De Berge’s Saddlery and Western Outfitters on Rte 66 in downtown Williams, AZ.  Martha’s husband (from the East coast) loved the belts and couldn’t make up his mind about the designs… she quietly ordered  one of the designs as a Christmas gift and within a short time the belt was in her hands!  Beautiful hats and belts as well as other products. You’ll see it’s worth the stop in the “slow movin’” town of Williams to visit and shop the workshop/store.

Belt making at the De Berge Saddlery and Western Outfitters in Williams Arizona close to the Grand Canyon Bed and Breakfast

If you are into real western wear and not the drugstore cowboy variety, this is the place to go. Anything leather, from saddles to gun holsters to belts and boots, are made here to order. The leather smith is Tamara, a charming young lady with a gifted hand for shaping and tooling leather. She makes her own designs and custom fits; generally a 90 day lead time. Tamara has a clientele made up mostly of locals cowboys & Europeans, but while Alfred , (from the West coast), was there a Navajo man came in to have a gun belt made for himself. Can’t get more real than that. Thick solid leather tends to have a macho look to it, but in Tamara’s hands embossed with floral designs it also becomes extremely elegant for the ladies. While much of her work is custom, there are enough ready-made things in the shop to make it worthwhile to stop in Williams at the De Berge Saddlery for instant gratification of your leather and western wear urges as you transit the state or move toward the Grand Canyon.

AHOG (AZ Harley Owners Group) Returns to Williams

April 11th, 2014 by Del & Sheryl Terry

Once again about 500-600 HOG (Harley Owners Group) members are expected to take to the streets of Williams, AZ this summer

when the Arizona Harley Owners Group (AHOG) rally returns to town.  The rally will take place from June 5 to 7, 2014. 

AHOG is a statewide organization comprised of all of the chapters throughout Arizona.  They meet yearly to have fun, compete in riding events and elect state leaders for the following year.

Registration for the event will take place in the Visitor Center parking lot near the Babbitt-Polson Warehouse Stage just West of the intersection of Railroad Avenue and Grand Canyon Boulevard starting Thursday morning the 5th about 8am.  The rally group’s bike games will take place at the Rodeo Grounds.

 Williams is a friendly town where HOG owners can have a lot of fun.  It’s easy to walk around town, have great rides, and is close to the Grand Canyon, Jerome, and Kingman.

Williams is a great rally venue where HOG owners and their partners can enjoy a great time while spending 2 or 3 nights at Grand Canyon Bed & Breakfast, located in a quiet neighborhood less than a mile from the festivities and with off-street parking.This year’s rally will include bike games, guided motorcycle rides, a motorcycle show, a parade through town, dances and concerts.

Grand Canyon Harley-Davidson in Bellemont, AZ sponsors the Grand Canyon HOG Chapter, which will put on this year’s rally.If you don’t own a Harley (or any other brand of motorcycle) you can rent one for the event at Grand Canyon Harley-Davidson and ride into Williams in ‘style’.  There are other dealers throughout Arizona if you’d like to rent a bike and ride from you home to the AHOG.  You just possibly might fall in love with the machine and experience and buy one of your own.

The public is welcome to attend any of the events during the rally.
