Now in its second year, 501 Fest will be held on Sunday, May 1, in the SoMa district of downtown Little Rock. The festival will celebrate the capital city and all the surrounding towns that share the same 501 area code. Local vendors, restaurants, artists and community members will come together to highlight all of the best things that central Arkansas has to offer.

Here are a few of the day's highlights in SoMa:

  • Live music by The Funkanites

  • handmade jewelry and goods

  • bounce houses and games for the kids

  • video gaming trailer

  • local food and drinks

  • vintage apparel and decor

The fest is an official part of 501 Day (held on 05/01 each year), a day where cities, businesses and organizations across central Arkansas show their pride with special 501-themed offers, activities, merchandise, public art displays and whatever else they dream up to celebrate the region they're proud to call home.

501 Fest will take place from 11 a.m. - 6 p.m. at 1301 Main St., and a portion of proceeds will go to Creators Village and the Downtown Little Rock Partnership.

Keep up with 501 Fest updates on the event's website and on Facebook and Instagram.
