Springfest has set a date for its 2020 festival.

Springfest officials this week announced plans to host their event on Saturday, April 11 next year.

The event, which began in the 1980s as a celebration of the springtime organized by Dickson Street businesses, typically includes local live music, arts and craft vendors, activities for kids, and of course, the annual bed races up Dickson Street.

A new group of volunteer organizers took the reigns of the event last year, led by local musician, Amanda Rey.

This year’s event will raise funds for Northwest Arkansas Musicians Connection, Lifesource and Tri-Cycle Farms.

Those interested in getting involved in this year’s festival can contact Rey via Facebook, or by emailing [email protected].
