The 2018 1st Tuesday's were a HUGE success!

We want to thank all of the Fort Smith Downtown Business Association members who participated this past year. Our numbers are growing and the crowds are, too.

The Fort Smith Downtown Business Association (FSDBA) is proud to announce the 2019 3rd Thursday events!

This event was previously known as, and held on, the first Tuesday of each month from April through October. Starting this year, the event will move to the third Thursday during the same months.
We believe the change will allow more people to attend the event and encourage more people to attend other events happening in Downtown Fort Smith on Thursday nights. The event change will also help with parents who have children playing sports on Tuesday nights, as well as help with the "July conflict" that occurs around the 4th of July holiday. By moving to the third week of the months, this will avoid the conflict of hosting the event during the first week of the months.
There will still be activities and themes from month to month for everyone to participate in including the trolley rides, rides at the Park at West End, as well as participating businesses like Belle Starr Antiques, Olen & Co., Sunshine & Oak, Simply Couture and great restaurants and clubs like AJ's Oyster House and Harry's Downtown who extend their normal business hours during the 3rd Thursday events.

Also a big thanks all summer long to Regions Bank in Downtown Fort Smith who will be firing up the grill every 3rd Thursday at the Farmer's Market lot at 2nd and Garrison.

The dates for 2019 will be April 18th, May 16th, June 20th, July 18th, August 15th, September 19th and October 17th from 5 PM to 8 PM.
