Events

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

The only thing better than leisurely traversing thirty miles of the beautiful Razorback Greenway on a bicycle is making the journey with three party-worthy pit stops along the way! Northwest Arkansas communities along the trail will again play host to the Square 2 Square ride, a wildly popular biannual event that brings out thousands of riders of all ages and experience levels to Fayetteville each fall and spring.
