FAYETTEVILLE ROOTS FESTIVAL 

The Signature Event for the Fayetteville Roots Festival will be taking place this coming weekend, Thursday through Sunday.

Fayetteville Roots is a non-profit with a mission to connect the community through music and food. As always, a lot of their programming is already sold out, but you can still participate in their free community programming – including musical performances, culinary taste, and talk series, workshops, and more.

A full festival schedule is available on their website. Volunteer opportunities are available as well.

BITE NWA 

The BITE-NWA event series will continue in September with a one-night festival-style experience at The Jones Center in Springdale.

The event will feature food from local restaurants, activations, live music, and a celebration of Hispanic Heritage. Tickets are on sale now for the event which will take place on Thursday, Sept. 1 from 6-9 p.m.

FIRST TEE

First Tee is partnering with the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G on September 19-25.

They are needing volunteers to help out during the event – volunteers for many different committees and positions, and volunteers of all ages. As part of the Volunteer Team, you’ll get a behind-the-scenes experience at one of the premiere tournaments of the LPGA Tour.

Volunteers ages 13-18 will receive the volunteer package at no cost.
