Kendal Mountain Tour to bring unique selection of adventure films to Fayetteville


The Kendal Mountain Tour, an event from the organizers of the Kendal Mountain Festival in the UK, is coming to Fayetteville this week.

The tour includes a selection of short adventure documentaries that focus on a range of outdoor experiences, from mountaineering and rock climbing to trail running and wild swimming, all from a British and European perspective.

The films are selected by a team at the Kendal Mountain Festival, which attracts over 20,000 outdoor enthusiasts each year.

The event is set for Thursday, March 2 at the Fayetteville Public Library’s Event Center in downtown Fayetteville. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for vendor experiences, raffle tickets, and drink sales. The show will begin at 7 p.m. and will include a brief intermission.

The Fayetteville tour stop will serve as a fundraiser for Pedal It Forward, a non-profit organization based in Northwest Arkansas that strives to increase access to bicycles in the region. The organization offers free and low-cost bicycles to those in need, with the aim of promoting cycling as a healthy and sustainable mode of transportation.

Tickets are $15 for general admission and can be purchased at Eventbrite.
