LIVE! in NWA: Turnbow Concert Series Begins April 28 In Downtown Springdale

The Downtown Springdale Alliance has announced its LIVE! at Turnbow season, a free concert series featuring musicians from across Northwest Arkansas. The outdoor events take place at Turnbow Park, adjacent to the downtown Springdale dining district, where audiences can grab a bite to eat or a drink. According to Jill Dabbs, executive director of the Downtown Springdale Alliance, the community can expect to hear a variety of musicians and bands “including exciting collaborations with local nonprofit music organizations The House of Songs and City Sessions.”

LIVE! at Turnbow takes place on the last Thursday of the month April through October. All concerts begin at 6:30 p.m. Headliners announced so far are:

April 28 — Modeling

May 26 — Jeff Horton Band

June 30 — TBA

July 28 — Jukebox Confession

Aug. 25 — House of Songs Presents

Sept. 29 — Big Piph

Oct. 27 — City Sessions Presents

“There is nothing better than live music, and Turnbow Park is an ideal setting for an outdoor concert,” Dabbs says. “It’s right off the Razorback Greenway, making it easy to walk and bike there. It’s spacious, with plenty of seating, and it’s an easy walk to grab a bite to eat or drink from one of our bars and restaurants. And this season is going to be spectacular – what a lineup!”

LIVE! at Turnbow is presented by the Tyson Family Foundation. Supporting sponsors include Legacy National Bank and Springdale Parks & Recreation. Details can be found at
