Fayetteville Advertising and Promotion Commission members say they want to make sure the Walton Arts Center-owned Arkansas Music Pavilion stays in Fayetteville.

According to a new study released on Wednesday, the arts and culture industry has a $46 million annual economic impact on the Northwest Arkansas region.

The city’s Parks & Recreation department, along with the Urban Forestry Advisory Board, will give away free trees and shrubs beginning at 7 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 13 at the Town Center Plaza on the south side of the Fayetteville square.

The All American Rejects are coming to Fayetteville next month for a show at George’s Majestic Lounge.

Romance Diamond Co. is the newest Flyer Sponsor. Please help us welcome them to the Flyer family.
