A new event in a brand new outdoor venue will make its debut in Fayetteville this weekend.

City officials announced the first event in a new series called “Fall Fridays in the Ramble” will take place from 4:30-6:30 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 16 in the newly completed Lower Ramble outdoor area, located just southwest of the Fayetteville Public Library.

The first event will include live music by local duo, Dead Horse Mountain Band.

City officials last week celebrated the opening of the new area, the first completed section of The Ramble, the city’s new voter-approved $31.6 million arts corridor. The first part of the project converted the wooded area between West and Gregg avenues into a nature attraction with trails, elevated walkways, an overlook, native landscaping and a variety of seating areas. The work also included restoration of the creek, removal of invasive species, and improved access to the Razorback Greenway from the library.

Nearby parking is available nearby at Fayetteville Public Library, and a path from West Avenue leads down to the Lower Ramble area.

Future events will feature bandana printing, a poetry workshop, and nature walk on Sept. 23, and folk music by Arlan and the Professor on Sept. 30.

Fall Fridays in the Ramble is free to attend, and open to the public.
