With more than 180 festivals throughout the year, Fayetteville allows visitors to experience the city’s unique taste and culture.
For our community’s safety and health, Experience Fayetteville has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 First Thursday season.
We look forward to 2021 and can’t wait to see you on the square.
On the first Thursday of the month, the city’s historic downtown square transforms into an outdoor arts district featuring visual artists who create items in a variety of mediums. The event also includes live music, street performances, children’s activities, food trucks, a craft beer garden and more. First Thursday runs from 5:00 p.m. - 8:30 p.m.
Message from event coordinators:
"For the safety and well being of athletes and our community along with USA Cycling's Coronavirus Update...we are postponing the event. Our plan is to reschedule the event for later this year. Stay tuned for frequent updates and Thank You in advance for your patience and understanding during this unprecedented time in our lives."
UPDATE regarding COVID-19: In alignment with state officials, local organizations and compassion for the community at large, organizers have made the decision to postpone the 2020 Nutty Runner 5k until a more suitable date can be found and the safety of all can be ensured.
The organizers of this quintessential Fayetteville, Arkansas event aren’t kidding around about embracing the toast of “To your health!” Combining the pleasure of great craft beer consumption with the solid benefits of outdoor exercise, the Nutty Runner 5K features a tasty pint of Columbus House Brewery’s popular Nutty Runner Nut Brown Ale at every mile marker and at the finish.
