It's simple! Downtown Bentonville Inc., along with some great partners, are launching an eight-week long contest series to help support our community and downtown businesses during this difficult time.
We are in this together.
In the meantime, please continue to support our local businesses by shopping online and ordering pickup, utilizing curbside, or selecting delivery. Our restaurants and boutique shops are what make our city so special, and they need us more now than ever.
March 23-28 // March 30-April 4
Let’s paint, uh, color the town! Since we literally cannot "paint the town red" we've come up with an indoor alternative.
1 - Print (or draw) an official #DowntownBentonville color sheet
2 - Color it yourself or ask a youngin to help color it
3 - Post a photo of the finished work on Facebook or Instagram and tag @DowntownBentonville with #DowntownBentonville
Except it's not about shopping its about the people who own them!
