Fun Family Outings in Northwest Arkansas: Downtown Springdale Kicks off Concert Series

Live at Turnbow, 2022 Northwest Arkansas

On Thursday (April 28, 2022) the Downtown Springdale Alliance will kick off its outdoor concert series, LIVE! at Turnbow, with performances from Auralai, a cello-pop artist, and Modeling, a three-piece experimental, electronic group.

The free outdoor concerts take place at Turnbow Park where the community can listen to live, outdoor music while they enjoy a bite to eat or drink in the Downtown Outdoor Dining District. The community can expect to hear a variety of musicians and bands throughout the season including collaborations with local nonprofit music organizations The House of Songs and City Sessions.

LIVE! at Turnbow events will be held on the last Thursday of the month through October. All concerts begin at 6:30 p.m. (In the event of inclement weather, all postponed concerts will be rescheduled to the following Sunday at 6:30 p.m.)

Concert headliners are:

  • April 28 – Modeling
  • May 26 – Jeff Horton Band
  • June 30 – To Be Announced
  • July 28 – Jukebox Confession
  • August 25 – House of Songs Presents
  • September 29 – Big Piph
  • October 27 – City Sessions Presents

“There is nothing better than live music, and Turnbow Park is an ideal setting for an outdoor concert,” said Jill Dabbs, executive director of the Downtown Springdale Alliance. “It’s right off the Razorback Greenway, making it easy to walk and bike there. It’s spacious with plenty of seating and it’s an easy walk to grab a bite to eat or drink from one of our bars and restaurants. And this season is going to be spectacular. What a line-up!”

The Downtown Springdale Alliance is a nonprofit that was formed in 2011 with a mission to create vibrancy in the dynamic downtown.
