Some of our favorite events are returning to NWA this year, including the Walton Arts Center’s Artosphere Festival! The event is intended to celebrate art and nature and is scheduled to take place May 6-23 at venues across the region.
“On the heels of the pandemic, we thought this was the perfect opportunity to lean into the ‘art in nature’ element of the festival,” said Scott Galbraith at the Walton Arts Center. “Therefore, in addition to our popular Trail Mix, we’ll be presenting in three different cities an outdoor theater piece that will comply with current health and safety protocols.”
The event will be headlined by the popular Trail Mix series of concerts in Fayetteville and Bentonville on May 21. Performers include Papa Rap, Melody Pond, Block Street Hot Club, Jayme Stone, Smokey and the Mirror, and Bike Zoo.
Film Festival: The Artosphere Film Series will also return this year. The event will include screenings of FernGully: The Last Rainforest, The Boy and the World, Mia and the Migoo and Welcome to the Space Show May 15-16 at Walton Arts Center.
