Tickets for Live Events in Arkansas
Arkansas has an entertainment scene that's as rich and diverse as its landscapes, which range from the Ozark Mountains to the north, dense Timberlands to the south and the eastern lowlands along the Mississippi River. The state's larger cities, including the capital Little Rock, Fort Smith, Fayetteville-Springdale-Rogers, Pine Bluff and Jonesboro, all offer live events of interest to visitors and locals alike. Whether it's college sports teams, top-notch performing arts companies or homegrown country and bluegrass masters, Arkansas promises great entertainment for everyone.
Arkansas' musical heritage is unmatched when it comes to country, bluegrass, rockabilly and blues. The state gave us such artists as Johnny Cash, Al Green and Glen Campbell, and the city of West Memphis is one of the original birthplaces of the blues. Cities throughout Arkansas celebrate their musical legacies, with Riverfest in downtown Little Rock, the King Biscuit Blues Festival in Helena, the Fort Smith Riverfront Blues Fest and the Ozark Folk Festival in Mountain View, the "Folk Music Capital of the World."
Classical music and performing arts are well-represented in Arkansas. In Little Rock, there's the Community Theatre of Little Rock, Arkansas Repertory Theatre, Arkansas Symphony Orchestra and Ballet Arkansas. Fayetteville has the Symphony of Northwest Arkansas, award-winning TheatreSquared and the Arts Center of the Ozarks. Fort Smith's performing arts center is home to the Fort Smith Symphony and Western Arkansas Ballet.
College teams are the stars of Arkansas' live sports scene. Jonesboro in the Arkansas Delta has Arkansas State Red Wolves football, basketball, baseball and rugby. The University of Arkansas Razorbacks play for sports fans in Fayetteville.
