The Last First Thursday of the Season

In the last few years, First Thursday Fayetteville has become a highly anticipated, must-see monthly event drawing more than 15,000 people downtown throughout the season.

On the first Thursday of each month from April to October, First Thursday Fayetteville transforms the city’s historic Downtown Square into a vibrant arts district, featuring the work of more than 40 visual artists, live music, street performers, food and drink, and children’s activities.

The upcoming First Thursday, on October 6, will round out the end of the 2016 season with some great musical acts and activities, celebrating the cool fall weather.

The Kids Stage act will be Little Rock Magician Tommy Terrific who will perform from 6 pm – 6:45 pm on the west side of the square.

The main stage, located on the Fayetteville Town Center plaza will feature blues band, Crescent City Combo. Also in the plaza, will be a beer garden featuring local brews from Little Rock based brewers, Lost Forty Brewing.

Local artists, food trucks and vendors will take over the Square while participating galleries and art-related venues offer free access to visual and performing art. Local merchants in the downtown area typically keep their shops open late just for First Thursday patrons.

It’s a safe, family-friendly, community event for people of all ages, free to the public, and a lot of fun. First Thursday feels like a giant gallery opening, with all the energy and excitement of a street festival. 

Mark your calendars for October 6 and we'll see you on the square!
