More about the Festival

You don't need to book an expensive trip to Napa Valley when one of the South's premier wine tasting events happens right here in Northwest Arkansas!  Since 2000, Walton Arts Center's Art of Wine Festival has been enjoyed by Arkansans and visitors from across the country.  This annual, multi-day wine and food festival has quickly grown into one of the largest in the region, featuring hundreds of wines, food from dozens of area restaurants and live entertainment. 

"We have attended Art of Wine events for years and regard it as one of the premier events in Northwest Arkansas!", said Wayne and Diane Callahan, Walton Arts Center patrons and loyal Art of Wine supporters. 

Proceeds from the Art of Wine Festival support Walton Arts Center, a nonprofit arts presenting organization serving the region for more than twenty years. Each year more than 200,000 community members experience a variety of performing arts at Walton Arts Center and approximately 50,000 school children and teachers in Arkansas participate in our arts education and outreach programs.
