Events

With more than 180 festivals throughout the year, Fayetteville allows visitors to experience the city’s unique taste and culture.

Artosphere: Arkansas' Arts and Nature Festival returns June 10 - 29, 2019. The festival, presented by the Walton Arts Center, celebrates artists influenced by nature, who inspire us to live more sustainable lives.

“As we celebrate the 10th anniversary of the Artosphere Festival in 2019, which coincides with the 50th anniversary of man walking on the moon, we are focusing thematically on space. Since the dawn of time, space has been a source of wonder, innovation, and artistic inspiration for all the world’s people. Further, man’s exploration of space has given us the technology to look back on ourselves and observe both the Earth’s changing ecosystem and our shared humanity. In that Artosphere was designed to explore the intersection of arts + nature, always with an eye toward sustainability, space seems like the perfect theme.” – Scott Galbraith, Vice President of Programming and Executive Producer

Just like the changing of the clocks for the beginning of Daylight Savings and the celebrated immergence of dogwood and redbud trees throughout the Ozarks, there are a few happy reminders that spring has fully taken hold in Northwest Arkansas. One of those seasonal rites is the annual Spring Square 2 Square Bike Ride, a 30-mile cycling celebration on the Razorback Greenway, which starts in Fayetteville and finishes in Bentonville.
