EPLZ<21 Showcase Auditions and Eureka Palooza


It’s all about music, food, bouncy castles, games, vendors and fun galore at the 4th annual EurekaPalooza Outdoor Festival taking place from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 28 at Lake Leatherwood fields in Eureka Springs.


This family friendly- festival features two stages for non-stop musical entertainment, including a showcase of talented young musicians from around the area.  You’ll hear everything from rock to bayou reggae and bluegrass to red dirt under a big sky with a grassy dance floor.

A Kid Zone will include bounce houses, games, slides, activities, and art opportunities. Admission is a suggested donation of $1, and proceeds benefit Clear School, an Independent school in Eureka Springs that provides a hands-on education to pre-primary – 12th grade students in Northwest Arkansas.

New this year is the EPLZ<21 Showcase. The idea for the showcase sprung from the popularity of the some wonderful performances last year by High School students from Clear Spring School and Benton County School of the Arts.  A public audition for slots at the EPLZ<21 Showcase will take place from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.  on Friday, Aug. 23 in the Basin Spring Park. It will also serve as entertainment during the Eureka Springs Downtown Network’s monthly Fun After 5 event.  Selected performers will go on to play the showcase at EurekaPalooza in September.  The Fun After 5 event is free and open to everyone.
