We can't help ourselves. We love the arts and this festival has its hooks in us. Now in its fifth year, Acansa is bringing together another group of acclaimed performers and artists from central Arkansas and the surrounding region.

Festival events will take place Sept. 18-23 and include concerts, recitals, a one-woman play and a contemporary dance performance by MOMIX, just to name a few.
