Our 5th Yadaloo date is yet to be determined. We are on a pause, and will likely resume in 2025.

The 4th Yadaloo Music & Arts Festival presented by Willy D's Rock & Roll Piano Bar was held on the banks of the Arkansas River at North Little Rock Riverfront Park on Saturday, May 27, 2023 from 2pm to 10:00pm in conjunction with the Pulaski County Fair presented by Oaklawn Racing Casino Resort.

Winning Best New Festival of the Year with the Arkansas Festival & Events Association, our first year in 2019 was incredible! We gathered on the banks of the Arkansas River in North Little Rock, listening to Country & Americana music and enjoying arts vendors, great food, and fun for all ages.  The 2nd annual Yadaloo Music and Arts Festival won the 2021 Best Virtual Event in 2020. We adapted to provide a safe and unique experience for festival lovers and went 100% virtual to raise money for hungry Arkansans during the pandemic.


The mission of the Yadaloo festival is to provide national, top-quality entertainment while boosting our local economy through a trendsetting experience that will build into state and national prominence. With Yadaloo we strive to create a new, one-of-a-kind experience that will capture the free spirit in us all while highlighting the rich history and arts of our community. 

How do you pronounce Yadaloo?  Like, "Ya" in "Y'all."

These activities will be hosted by local art groups. Multiple arts and crafts vendors will feature their designs and products that are handcrafted and unique.
