We celebrate International Education Week alongside the University of Arkansas this week (November 16-20, 2020) and international cuisine every day.

A college town nestled in the beautiful Ozark Mountains, Fayetteville draws students and visitors from all over the world who share their stories, cultures, and traditions in all of the best ways. In the travel and tourism industry, one of our favorite ways to celebrate Fayetteville is through the FOOD! Here, it’s a melting pot of local international and fusion flavors so whatever you or your crew are hungry for, Fayetteville serves it up.

Fall activities and ways to celebrate the arts are looking a little different this year - as is everything. Lucky for us, many of Fayetteville’s theatres and studios are taking performances, classes and acts to the virtual stage. We are so excited to see that Art’s Live Theatre is expanding its education offerings throughout the year with the goal of putting young artists at center stage.
