April: International Street Faire

Apr 4th

This First Friday is fashioned after European street fairs. It highlights the talents of street performers, like jugglers, stilt walkers, fire-eaters, magicians and more! To Add to the fun : We will be asking our visitors to ‘vote’ with their dollars and the performer who gathers the most by the end of the evening will win an additional bonus check from Downtown Bentonville, Inc. and be crowned the reigning King of the Bentonville Buskers for 2014. You may participate in this process by bringing a few dollar bills or coins to the square April 4, between the hours of 5 pm and 8pm, roam the square enjoying constant performances and drop those bills in the donation box of your favorite act. Or, if you prefer you may purchase a few “Busker Bucks” from the Downtown Bentonville, Inc. information tent, across from the courthouse, while they last, at a special rate of 25 “Busker bucks” for $20. There will be constant action with nine spectacular acts performing in 4 rotating locations around the Downtown Bentonville Square for the three hours. And as always don't forget to explore all that Downtown Bentonville has to offer -- most of the downtown businesses (on AND around the Downtown Bentonville Square) have special offers, special events and extended hours.
