The 3rd Yadaloo Music & Arts Festival will be held again on the banks of the Arkansas River at North Little Rock’s Riverfront Park on Saturday, May 21, 2022.
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 on a beautiful Fall day in September. The 2nd annual Yadaloo Music and Arts Festival won 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.
We host a monthly showcase, Sounds of Unity. Visit us on our Facebook page to watch and mark your calendars for these talented artists we feature.
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."
