Last Night Fayetteville


What is Last Night?

Last Night Fayetteville is an exciting non profit performing arts festival taking place on the Fayetteville Square on New Year’s Eve. Join Fayetteville as we celebrate the Last Night of the year with a variety of performances hosted in multiple venues around the downtown square highlighting the area’s finest musicians, actors, performers & artists. We invite you to be a part of our unique traditions: carry a puppet in the Giant Puppet Parade, catch a show in the Sheet Fort Theater, and don’t miss your chance to countdown 2016 with the world famous Hog Drop & Fireworks Finale!

Unlike Any Other

As Arkansas’ largest New Year’s Eve celebration, Last Night Fayetteville hosts thousands of guests from all around the South (and beyond!) who gather to enjoy live music, hilarious comedians, impressive dance, one of a kind theatre, passionate poets, fire eating jugglers, and many more entertaining acts, all surrounded by the revelry of the New Year. It’s a festival unlike any other, inspiring TripAdvisor to declare it as “one of the Top Ten New Year’s Eve celebrations in the US.”.
