Music and Entertainment

Arkansas is thriving with southern music, art centers, independent film festivals and cultural expression.

Art centers, museums and galleries in Eureka Springs and throughout the state display works of both the masters and up-and-coming artists. Located in the scenic Ozark Mountains, Mountain View is the "Folk Music Capital of the World" where visitors can enjoy authentic southern music traditions. The nighttime verve of the River Market District in Little Rock and Dickson Street in Fayetteville make them prime nightlife spots to take in trendy restaurants and to enjoy live southern music from hard rock and jazz to country and the blues.

The rich history of the Arkansas Delta and the blues music that rose from the fertile soil is highlighted with the Arkansas Blues Trail.  Legendary radio stations KFFA in Helena and KWEM in West Memphis played important roles in shaping the careers of many of the blues greats who began or established themselves in Arkansas.  Both stations are still going strong. The annual Arkansas King Biscuit Blues Festival is held each October in Helena-West Helena.

Performances by Broadway touring companies frequently pass through our cities, and the state is host to several successful independent film festivals, including the world-class Hot Springs documentary film festival. For classical music buffs, the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra performs year-round.
