Welcome Home

Last year we combined all the cultures we could into performances for the MainStage, but this year we're going a step further and bringing food & art into the celebration.


Destination Arkansas

We are thinking of all the most exciting things we can pack into a First Friday for one thriller of a block party.




Sat Market Opens

This is the first day of the Bentonville Farmers Market and it's a big deal. We're cooking up some really neat ways to start it off right, but we'll have more on that soon.


Special Event

The first day of the midweek market located on the Bentonville Square this year.


Dog Days

Join us for the most popular kid event of the year! 7th Annual KidsFest headlined by Peppa Pig! Come to a meet-and-greet with Peppa, and stay for photos, crafts with the whole gang, great giveaways, and be the first to watch brand new episodes to be streamed for the first time anywhere! This is in addition to the wonderful birthday party venues and kid focused vendors that will be set up at the event offering fun activities and giveaways!
