Weekend Flyer: Jude Brothers, Washington County Fair, Black Owned Business Expo, and more

Jude Brothers ( Adeliza Backus-Pace)

It has been a week. Let’s put it behind us, shall we, and have a weekend instead.

There’s a big show at the Walmart AMP to kick off the weekend on Thursday night. Singer Jelly Roll is in town for a sold-out show at the venue along with Struggle Jennings, Caitlynne Curtis, and Josh Adam Meyers.

The fair is in town this weekend as well. Washington County Fair continue through Saturday night, with the carnival open late on Friday night for “midnight madness.” Here’s more.

Also happening all weekend, you could check out Dial M for Murder, the new show playing at TheatreSquared in downtown Fayetteville. Here’s more info, including ticket details and a schedule of performances.

George’s has live music this weekend with longtime local party band Ultra Suede performing at Happy Hour, followed by a new project called CowboyMania, a tribute to country music/southern rock by local musician Anthony Ball and his Smoothman productions bandmates. On Saturday, George’s will host local rockers, Ozark Riviera.

Speaking of George’s, owner Brian Crowne will be honored for his contributions to the local music scene at an event at Fayetteville Public Library on Friday night by local organization, Music Education Initiative. The event is called A Crowne-ing Affair. Here’s more about that.

Walton Arts Center has a show on Saturday night with NWA Jazz Society’s annual Summer Jazz Concert. The show starts at 7:30 p.m., and ticket info is here.

Also in tunes, Smoke & Barrel Tavern has a rock show with locals Protohive, Salesman, and Fight Dream on Saturday night, and local artist Jude Brothers will play the venue on Sunday night with Creekbed Carter Hogan and McKain Lakey.

The annual Black Owned NWA Business Expo is back in town on Saturday at Fayetteville Town Center. The semi-annual event starts at 5 p.m. Here’s our story.

If you’ve never checked one out before, the Likewise Bazaar in the parking garage at Likewise downtown is really cool. It’s at 10 a.m. on Saturday, which is kind of perfect if you’re already gonna be downtown for the Farmers’ Market.

On Sunday, Pinpoint will host a barbecue on their patio featuring food by local chef Nate Walls of Second Hand Smoke. Pinpoint has been hosting a token drive fundraiser for Walls’ organization Second Helping that focuses on feeding folks in need in and around Fayetteville. There will be food, music, and Pinpoint will present a donation to Second Helping at the event. The event starts at 4 p.m., and will run until they run out of food.

There’s more below and you can click around on anything that sounds interesting on the list for more details. Have a great weekend, everyone.
