1. Oh Local Night – Downtown Shopping
December 1 | 5 p.m.
Oh Local night is put on by Block Street Businesses in our downtown district and is the perfect place to shop and see the Lights of the Ozarks! Over 25 local businesses will open their doors with libations, snacks and sales! If you bring a receipt from one of these local businesses, it will get you 10% off at your next stop.
It might be warm outside but it’s almost time for the holidays! Come kick off the holiday season by experiencing Fayetteville’s unique Lights of the Ozarks festival.
A winter wonderland, Lights of the Ozarks illuminates all downtown Fayetteville. The festival kicks off with just a flip of the switch by Mayor Jordan on Friday, November 18 at 6 p.m. and festivities continue with the lightning night parade.
The holidays are a wonderful time of the year in Fayetteville. From patroning our great local businesses to spending time in the glow of The Lights of the Ozarks, there’s something magical about our town in December.
