With more than 180 festivals throughout the year, Fayetteville allows visitors to experience the city’s unique taste and culture.
It’s next to impossible to picture Fayetteville, Arkansas without calling to mind the city’s much-storied, always vibrant Dickson Street. To honor these few illustrious blocks running through downtown—and the special place they hold in the hearts of generations of locals, college students, alumni and visitors—the team at the Clinton House Museum is throwing a special Dickson-themed party.
We might be a little biased, but we do believe it would be extraordinarily difficult to find a more stunningly beautiful bike trail than the one located in the Kessler Mountain Regional Park. Considered one of the premier natural areas in Northwest Arkansas, the park incorporates an impressive section of Ozark forest that has been established as a nature preserve to protect the mountain’s diverse wildlife and plants.
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
