Who puts on First Friday, Farmers Market, Christmas Parade, etc...?
Is it the city?
Do they work with the city?
But they're not the city?
Well who are they?
It's really pretty simple.
Downtown Bentonville Inc. is a nonprofit, funded by donations, sponsorships and grants.
We started about 15 years ago with the purpose of bringling life back to Downtown Bentonville. There was very little business and practically nobody went to the square to hang out. Some thing needed to change and we spearheaded that.
Our focus is on making events in Downtown that bring the community together and make everyone feel at home.
Our fearless leader. He's out in the community gathering support and meeting new people. He really love Auntie Anne's pretzels! They're his only weakness.
