Peacemaker Music & Arts Festival July 31-Aug. 2
Fort Smith, a city with a love for live music, has supported one concert tradition that turned 25 this summer – its enduring Riverfront Blues Festival. Now a cadre of some of the founders and fans of that successful festival are creating a new, late summer event named the Peacemaker Music & Arts Fest. It’s dedicated to no one style. It will be a kaleidoscopic selection of artists who may play roots, Americana, country punk, folk, soul/rock synthesis with genre-defying originality.
