Ozarktober Fest - Celebrating the Ozarks

The Downtown Springdale Alliance invites you to be part of a brand-new celebration—Ozarktober Fest—during one of the best times of year, nestled in one of the most special places in the country.

Staged in the core of Downtown Springdale, Ozarktober Fest is a four-day festival that will feature food, music, and lore as well as the booming microbrewing industry that is just one more growing asset Northwest Arkansas and the Ozarks can claim—plus one night will be all about Halloween family fun. 

The Ozarks region we call home is rich with culture, and Ozarktober Fest is a series of events designed to highlight a sampling of wonderful traditions and emerging amenities that make this area unique. 

Much of the celebration will be free to the public. For more information about schedules and how to purchase tickets to the ticketed events, visit downtownspringdale.org.
