Mission Statement

Our mission is to bring a diverse cultural and musical experiences to Downtown Fort Smith. We are dedicated to improving the quality of life and enhancing cultural experiences for residents, businesses, and visitors alike. The Peacemaker Festival is committed to being a forum for regional and national acts.


The Peacemaker Festival is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. We are a volunteer board committed to providing a portion of our proceeds directly back to the community through local charities.


Parking for Peacemaker Festival has changed in 2018.  Fort Smith has upgraded our parking lot to an AWESOME skate park. Please avoid this area as it is currently under construction. This means that we are pushing our parking out a bit further out this year and will have shuttle service for VIP pass holders.  You will need to show your digital ticket to the parking attendant to get shuttle service. See the photo below to find VIP Parking.
