Date: June 2-5
The University of Arkansas Razorbacks are hosting one of the NCAA Regional Tournaments in Fayetteville this coming weekend as part of the Division I Baseball Championship. Missouri State University, Oklahoma State University and Oral Roberts University will be coming to town to compete against the Hogs for a spot in the College World Series in Omaha.
With each team guaranteed to play both Friday and Saturday, and possibly Sunday and Monday, many fans will be staying in Fayetteville until their team’s season ends — or until they head to the Super Regionals June 9-12.
Experience Fayetteville with the locals during First Thursday, a community-centered, family-friendly event on the historic downtown square. The fun begins Thursday, June 1st, at 5 p.m. and features live music, delicious food, exhibits from local artists and interactive kid-centered activities, all in a lovely outdoor setting.
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
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.
