‘Tis the season for outdoor live music events in Northwest Arkansas. Check out a few of the upcoming open-air concerts kicking off Summer 2018!

Thursday, May 31st – Gulley Park Summer Concert Series

In the heart of one of Fayetteville’s most appreciated parks, the community gathers to enjoy a long standing tradition of outdoor live music and a food truck rally on six different occasions each summer. Hundreds of lounge chairs and blankets are scattered around the park to enjoy the atmosphere in countless ways. Family friendly music brings all walks of life together and spectators are encouraged to bring their “furry” friends as well.

We encourage you to attend the 22nd Annual Gulley Park Summer Concert Series in 2018 presented by Collier & Associates Realty and Fayetteville Parks and Recreation. We are confident if you attend one show, you will undeniably be back for the remaining shows! Concerts are on Thursday evenings from 7pm-9pm and take place at the Gulley Park gazebo. Go relax and take part in the fun-filled atmosphere!

Kick-off concert takes place on May 31st and will feature Crescent City Combo.
