Mission Statement

Peacemaker Festival, a music festival by music lovers…..for music lovers. Set on the banks of the Arkansas River in Downtown Fort Smith at the beautiful Riverfront Amphitheater. We blend the best Country, Rock, Blues, Red Dirt and Americana acts touring today. Peacemaker  is comprised of a volunteer led team focused on giving proceeds back to local charities, the arts community and downtown development.  Not to mention the fact that we just like to throw one helluva party.  The world needs more Peacemakers!!


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.
