Our mission is to create a diverse cultural experience on the riverfront in downtown Fort Smith through music and art. The Peacemaker Music & Arts Fest is designed as a venue where regional and national acts and artists can get their groove on and art it up for the fine people of Fort Smith and other far-flung locales.
The peacemaker music and arts festival is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are committed to providing a portion of our proceeds directly back to the community through local charities.
Oh, we have visions all right. Lots of ‘em. One of them, the Peacemaker Music & Arts Fest, was created to expand people’s cultural knowledge by offering a diverse range of both kinds of music … country AND western. Oh, and rock n roll, funk, bluegrass and blues acts. The Peacemaker Music & Arts Fest is also dedicated to promoting local and regional artists of all flavors and/or walks of life.
