It’s almost the first Thursday of the month, and you know what that means, right? It’s time for an outdoor street festival on the square.
First Thursday Fayetteville returns with another evening of music, art, food trucks, group bike rides, kid activities, and more on Thursday, Sept. 1.
The September version of the event is organized around the theme ‘A Closer Look,’ and includes miniature and hidden art installations around the square.
Music this month will be provided by locals DJ Dribblz (hip-hop, R&B, reggae), Amos Cochran (multi-instrumentalist, electronic compositions), and Arkansas rapper Jeremiah Pickett, aka Baang.
In addition, expect a kid zone, a slow-roll bike ride, free yoga, local arts and craft vendors, and more.
Food trucks this month include Hype Coffee, BeaverTails, Margaret’s, ShoBo’s Kitchen, Saguro Southwest Grill, and flavorful Kettle Corn.
This month’s Slow Roll bike ride will tour some of the public art around the downtown area. The ride will depart from the square at 6 p.m. All ages and abilities are welcome to participate on the ride.
Local art galleries will host openings to coincide with the event as well, including a new show titled Goal 14: Water for Life at Art Ventures, and the current show at Fenix Fayetteville (on
Mount Sequoyah) is titled Fresh from the Studio.
The festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. and will last until about 9 p.m.
Upcoming themes for future events include the Dog Daze-themed rained-out event from August now rescheduled for Sept. 15, and the final “Larger than Life” event in October.
