Pulaski County Fair Coming to NLR This May

The midway is returning to the metro this spring with endless treats, games, food and fun for the whole family.

Now in its fourth year, the Pulaski County Fair will take place over the course of nine days from May 17-27 on the picturesque banks of the Arkansas River.

Riverfront Park in North Little Rock will be transformed into a display of dazzling lights, thrilling rides and colorful attractions all encompassed by the mouth-watering smell of funnel cakes, popcorn, lemonade, corn dogs, turkey legs, fried Oreos, snow cones and much, much more.

You can also expect captivating games, a petting zoo, an array of novelty and arts vendors and a new BMX sporting feature. Plus, for those ages 21 and up, there will be a new beer tent with live music and a selection of adult beverages.

The 2024 fair is presented by Oaklawn Hot Springs and will feature an exciting lineup of live entertainment and music (to be announced soon). A portion of the fair’s proceeds will be donated to North Little Rock Parks & Recreation to support its ongoing mission to provide exceptional recreational opportunities and services for the community.

Admission to the fair is $5 for adults while children ages 10 and younger are free. Gates will open daily from 5-10 p.m. on weekdays, noon-11 p.m. on weekends and noon-8 p.m. on Memorial Day. The fair will be closed May 20-21. All-day wristbands can also be purchased, which grant unlimited access to all of the rides at the park. 

From now until May 17, discounted all-day wristbands can be purchased at the North Little Rock Welcome Center. The Welcome Center is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. – 4 p.m.
