Quick jump to:

1st Tuesday is an event hosted by the Fort Smith Downtown Business Association (FSDBA) to promote downtown businesses and to encourage the general public, who may not regularly come to downtown Fort Smith, to come and experience everything there is to do and see.

The event is held from May through October on the first Tuesday of each month from 6 PM to 9 PM. Most stores, restaurants and venues will stay open until at least 9 PM. There will be drawings for door prizes at participating stores along with specials and discounts at local restaurants. You can find the dates for each 1st Tuesday by visiting our Events tab.

This page will be updated each month with that month's activities and participating businesses that have a special or other offer. The map pins will help you find and locate the activity or business that you want to go to next.

We hope you enjoy each 1st Tuesday and bring all your friends to the next one!
