Welcome to Northwest Arkansas!

 

 


 



Craft fairs
 and Northwest Arkansas go together like kettles and corn! Top artists and craftsmen from all over the United States come to Northwest Arkansas to show and sell their hand-made wares in our renowned Craft Fairs held each May and October.

Our region welcomes hundreds of thousands of visitors from all over the nation as they shop for hand-made pottery, stained glass, baskets, jewelry, artwork, and much, much more, while meeting and sometimes watching the artisans at work.

Spread throughout Northwest Arkansas, what's historically known as the "War Eagle Weekend" includes numerous arts & crafts fairs, held annually the 3rd weekend of October.  A majority of the fairs are juried, meaning the artisans must meet strict guidelines in order to participate.

Most of the fairs will run through Sunday, most closing at 5:00pm (some later).  Keep in mind that all of our fairs are open - RAIN or SHINE!
