Festival on the Border

Festival on the Border

Music festival in Fort Smith, Arkansas. 2013 Line-up: TBA September 2013 at Harry E. Kelley Park

Mission: The festival was created as a way to raise money for area charities while providing family-friendly entertainment for area residents and visitors.

Operating as usual

[03/17/14]   Festival on the Border will not continue in 2014. With the difficult economy, it is virtually impossible to get corporate sponsorship to cover the cost of entertainment. Just not enough support in our community. Thank you for supporting the past 2 Festivals.
