FORT SMITH, Ark. (KNWA/KFTA) — The Peacemaker Festival is back in Fort Smith.

The 8th annual event in downtown Fort Smith on July 29-30 will feature artists from across the country. All the proceeds from this sold-out festival will be given to local kids’ charities.

Organizers say that they can’t wait to put this show on for the community.

“The fact that we have grown into this is — it’s really heartfelt,” said Nick Maestri with the festival. “We do this for our city. We’re all locals, and we couldn’t be more excited.”

Gates open at 4 p.m. with the night ending around 11:30 p.m. The city of Fort Smith says the westbound lane on the Garrison Avenue Bridge will be closed during the festival starting at 3 p.m. on July 29. The city says to expect delays if traveling through the area and consider alternate routes.

The music lineup can be found on the festival’s website.
