Conway EcoFest is joining forces with Conway ArtsFest to host the only festival of its kind in Arkansas, focusing on environmental awareness and the beauty and value of the arts. This dual-festival is called Conway Eco + Arts Fest 2018.
Conway Eco + Arts Festival will surely be one for the books! You can find all the details on the festival’s website, but we wanted to make sure you knew where to find the most important ones – plus a few bonus events that will be happening after the festival at Laurel Park has closed down.
General parking is located at the Conway High School Administration Building off of Prince Street and the Conway Regional South Lot off of Robinson Avenue. Parking will be marked. Golf cart shuttles will be available for transport from parking lots to event.
