The Arkansas River Valley Master Gardeners, along with the University of Arkansas Cooperative Extension Service, presents the 24th annual Arkansas River Valley Lawn & Garden Show.


Show Times: Friday & Saturday from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. and Sunday from 10 a.m.-5 p.m.


Ticket Prices: Adults (12+) $5 | 11 and Under is FREE


The mission of the Arkansas River Valley Lawn & Garden Show is horticulture education for the citizens of the Arkansas River Valley. The mission is accomplished by: (1) providing an annual Lawn & Garden Show; (2) providing financial support to the Arkansas River Valley Master Gardeners and the Learning Fields at Chaffee Crossing.


The ARVLGS is a great community and regional event which features a unique blend of education, beauty, special features, and product information.


The theme for the 2017 show is Go WILD Gardening! As you stroll through the magnificent garden displays, regardless of the weather outside, the Convention Center will be magically transformed into a springtime paradise.

Educating the public about gardening, landscaping, and other horticulture topics is the primary purpose of the Lawn & Garden Show. This year there will be an incredible set of speakers. Also, several garden vignettes are being added.

The show also features the Fort Smith Council of Garden Clubs' annual flower design show and horticulture judging; as well as the Fort Smith Art Center Photo Alliance's photography contest and display of photography competition entries. 

Our show provides the opportunity to meet local experts in landscaping, plant care, outdoor living spaces design, along with the newest & best gardening products, all under one roof.

Come join us and spend your spring getting your hands dirty!
