North Little Rock’s Yadaloo Music and Arts Festival

Two Arkansans are proud to be behind the new project, the Yadaloo Music and Arts Festival. Well-known country groups like Stoney LaRue are said to perform soon on the banks of the infamous Arkansas River.

According to their official website, the mission of the festival is to provide top-quality entertainment with a one-of-a-kind experience.

“The mission of the Yadaloo festival is to provide national, top quality entertainment while boosting our local economy through a trend-setting 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.”

Susan Erwin Prowse, local musician and co-founder of Yadaloo, expressed the importance of country music to her and their efforts to make their visions come to life.

“Country music means truth, it means roots, it means down-home. We love country music. We love our community, and just want to give back with a really cool, fresh festival for Arkansas.”

She and her husband, Cliff, make up the country duo, Cliff and Susan.

“It’s been months of work–daily work–to put this on. Anyone that’s ever planned an event will know that’s a big undertaking.” 

Yadaloo Music and Arts Festival is located at North Shore Riverwalk Park overlooking the Arkansas River in North Little Rock. It’s slated to open on Sunday, the 22nd of September 2019.

Yadaloo will also feature arts, food, games, and other booths during its run.

“In addition to our music entertainment, there will be areas and events set aside to feature all types of interactive art installations, which will nurture our inner child. These activities will be hosted by local art groups. Multiple arts and crafts vendors will feature their designs and products. We will give priority to high-quality, contemporary merchandise with goods that are handcrafted, hard-to-find, or unusual items that are not widely commercially available.”

The festival will be kid-friendly, and children under 12 can go in for free.

A portion of the proceeds will go to Habitat for Humanity. Tickets are available for purchase here.
