History
Scroll down arrow

Downtown Bentonville today barely resembles the Downtown Bentonville of yesterday. Over the last decades, our city has been reinvested as a welcoming, vibrant, world-class destination. Our organization was created to bring Bentonville’s downtown to life – and make the city a place people wanted to visit, explore, and share with others.

Throughout more than 15 years in existence, DBI has been a leader in bringing the community together to celebrate what makes Bentonville special and unique. Through the seamless execution of events, DBI has introduced food, music, and culture to a community on the cutting edge of social and economic change.

Our team works to make everyone feel safe and comfortable when visiting downtown Bentonville.

On behalf of everyone at DBI, welcome home!
