Prairie Grove Festivals
Year round, people from all over make their way to NW Arkansas to take part in Prairie Grove festivals. The typically great weather, beautiful scenery and quaintness of the town make it a perfect spot to get outdoors and enjoy all the fun, food, crafts and excitement.
Prairie Grove is located just outside Fayetteville AR, just east if Oklahoma. It sits at the foot of the Ozark Mountains. A convenient spot yet still far enough out of town to hold on to the past. Visit some of these Prairie Grove Festivals and see what I mean.
1. Clothesline Fair – The Prairie Grove Clothesline Fair is held at the Prairie Grove Battlefield Park, over the Labor Day Weekend each year. The fair is a partnership between the Prairie Grove Battlefield Park and the Prairie Grove Lions Club. There are typically over 150 vendors, square dance competitions, food trucks, music and more. Admission is free but you have to pay to park..
2. 4th of July Fireworks – What is a small town without a fireworks display? The City of PG hosts a beautiful fireworks show put on near the high school. With new construction happening, it will remain to be seen where it will take place in the future, stay tuned.
3. Christmas Parade – Just like 4th of July, what is a small town with out a Christmas Parade? The parade route goes down Main Street, pass the shops on Buchanan, to Mock St.
4. Junk Ranch: This is a must! The Junk Ranch is held twice a year, in the Spring and Fall. Unique craft vendors, upcyclers, and junkers unite to bring you all the best decorations to meet your farmhouse motif. There is admission to enter, but once you’re in there are plenty of food vendors and space to spread out.
5. Prairie Grove Battlefield Reenactment – Authentic, expansive, and well preserved, Prairie Grove is known as one of America’s most intact Civil War battlefields. With more than 900 acres, this park commemorates the site of the Battle of Prairie Grove, where on December 7, 1862, Confederate and Union forces clashed in a fierce day of fighting that resulted in 2,700 casualties. This battle marked the last major Civil War engagement in Northwest Arkansas. The park offers walking and driving tours, programs, and weekend events. At the Hindman Hall Museum, artifacts recovered from the battle are displayed. Admission to the museum is free. Arkansas’s largest Civil War battle re-enactment takes place here biennially (even-numbered years) the first weekend in December.
