Entertainment

There is no shortage of things to do in Northwest Arkansas, where the intersections of nature and art and food and education are uniquely us—unparalleled by any other region.

The local arts and entertainment experience unites our diverse communities, providing a vibrant canvas for all to appreciate. Ranging from Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, the first museum of its size to open between the coasts in more than a generation, to the Fayetteville Roots Festival, a five-day, intimate, urban music and food festival. And, let’s not forget Bikes, Blues & BBQ, the world’s largest charitable motorcycle rally with events spanning across Northwest Arkansas and serving motorcycle enthusiasts for 20 years.

We blur the lines of arts and entertainment—all with the lush natural landscape of the Ozarks as our backdrop.
