WE BELIEVE THAT A FESTIVAL IS A COMMUNITY.

The Fayetteville Roots Festival is an intimate, urban music & food festival taking place in the heart of one of the best regions in America (Northwest Arkansas). An urban festival is unique. Instead of escaping outside of town to an outdoor festival, here you can dive into our city and all it has to offer. Festival patrons have the chance to engage with the Fayetteville Farmers’ Market, local shops, local restaurants, local folks, and local culture all while attending a music festival. All of our ticketed events are small and intimate (and mostly indoors!). We limit the capacity to keep the festival feeling like a “best kept secret”. That means we sell out early!

FREE & LOW COST COMMUNITY EVENTS

We know that not everyone can afford to support the festival by purchasing a mainstaget ticket or may have missed out on getting a ticket before they sold out. Approximately 40% of the events happening during the festival are a part of our Free & Low Cost Community Programing. You can spend an entire weekend filled with Live Radio Broadcasts, Film/Documentary Screenings, Workshops, Food/Cooking Demonstrations, , and much more all for free or low cost. We encourage you to check out the schedule and make plans to get there early.
