It will be a hook for recruiting and attracting new restaurants and businesses to downtown for a more robust dinner scene. It will help art activations to be more successful. It will help people discover what an amazing destination Downtown Springdale is and becoming for the future. Outdoor Dining District signs will be installed shortly.

People will be able to buy drinks or food from participating locations and be able to freely walk and enjoy their items within the district seven days a week from 11 a.m. to 10 p.m.

“This is just another way we can get folks in a downtown area without having to confine them inside one space and be able to have a little sense of the old normal,” said Brent Hale, Owner/Executive Chef, Big Sexy Food and Sammich Love.

Patrons will be able to carry and drink alcoholic beverages throughout the district in designated outdoor dining district cups.
