Fort Smith’s Peacemaker Festival returns this weekend


FORT SMITH, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — This year’s Peacemaker Festival, a two-day event held in downtown Fort Smith, is welcoming artists aplenty!

Kylie Frey, The Band of Heathens, Lucero, Cody Johnson, and Paul Cauthen will be performing along with Kolby Cooper, Giovannie & the Hired Guns, Cody Hibbard, Muscadine Bloodline, and Tanner Usery.

The festival brings together rock, blues, and Red Dirt music. It also focuses on giving back to charity. This is the 7th year of the event.

“It’s a good time,” said festival’s vice president Rickey Beachum. “We want you to come out and socialize with your friends and family. Come enjoy some live music in a beautiful venue such as this right on the banks of the Arkansas River. It’s really about coming out, bringing a lawn chair or whatever you’re most comfortable in and have a good time.”

The festival starts Friday at 4:30 p.m.
