Firefly Fling, one of Northwest Arkansas’ most anticipated summer outings, returns to the Botanical Gardens of the Ozarks on Saturday, July 20, 2024. Come dressed as your favorite fairy, superhero, fantasy or woodland creature and experience a magical night of fun for the whole family!

Each summer, the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks transforms into a whimsical wonderland where attendees can be swept away into a world of imagination and make-believe. Drawing thousands of families from the area to Fayetteville each year, the Firefly Fling Festival offers engaging activites and enchanting experiences for all ages.





Before dark, the event bustles with fairy house building, interactive nature stations, giant bubbles, and captivating roaming performers! Enjoy food trucks and sweet treats as you stroll through the Garden and discover something new around every corner. Alcohol will be available for purchase for guests 21 & up. Everything at the Firefly Fling is set to a background of live music, perfect for singing, dancing, and twirling on the Great Lawn!

Once the sun begins to set, gather in the grass for an incredible laser light show unlike anything else in Northwest Arkansas.

There will be dinner options available on site, but guests also have the option to bring their own blankets, lawn chairs, and picnics. This event will be held rain or shine, so come prepared! The BGO does not permit any glass, smoking, vaping or firearms inside the garden and kindly asks guests to leave pets at home.
