Join Dacre Whitaker, our Director of Community Engagement, as she experiences Fayetteville and Northwest Arkansas.
Members of the artist group Fenix Fayetteville will present a three-week art exhibition and event series at the historic Walker Stone House in downtown Fayetteville from April 8-29.
Fayetteville, Arkansas is known as a great arts destination with many public works from large murals to little-known gems tucked in the nooks and crannies. We recently wandered around Fayetteville taking in the natural beauty and snapped a few shots of some of our favorite art pieces. If you haven’t explored the art scene in Fayetteville, add it to your bucket list!
First Thursday on the square is a family friendly seasonal event produced by Experience Fayetteville on the first Thursday of the month. This community centered, family friendly event features a combination of music, food, art, and fun. There is always free parking in the Town Center Parking lot during First Thursdays and in case of inclement weather we will move inside to the Town Center.

A local favorite for things to do in Fayetteville, the award-winning Fayetteville Farmers’ Market returns to the Historic Downtown Square on Saturday, April 1.
The market will be open on the square from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. every Saturday, and from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Tuesday and Thursday.
In Northwest Arkansas, we love to call the Hogs and fill the stands for home games! So, whether you're visiting with an opposing team or you're in town to cheer on the Razorbacks, welcome to Fayetteville. We can't wait for you to experience game day in our beautiful Ozark Mountain surroundings.
Arkansas has a long tradition of backing its Razorbacks, whether it's football, baseball, basketball, volleyball or any of the other eight sports at the University of Arkansas. Hog fans come out in full force to root on their team.
We all need a place to call home; a proverbial hearth that simultaneous garners sanctuary, familiarity, and inspiration alongside the people we love and cherish. Home is not simply a place, but rather a state of mind and, at times, even of taste, touch, and smell. The fragrance of freshly brewed coffee, frying bacon, and cigarette smoke transcends me to my childhood and the home kitchen of my grandma Dighero as she poetically maneuvers through her standard, grease laden daily breakfast. No matter when: childhood, adolescence, adulthood….I could count on those three intermingled perfumes to make me feel safe, and perpetually hopeful.
