We also coordinate with the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith to host events on its campus. If you are planning an outdoor event, Fort Smith’s riverfront park facilities are an ideal and picturesque location for festivals, concerts and rallies.
We have approximately 2,000 hotel rooms in the city, including 446 convention-quality rooms and suites within three blocks of the Convention Center. Our region is known for its unique heritage and historic attractions, its charm and natural beauty, and its affordability for both the many groups and tourists who visit and the thousands of families who call Fort Smith home.
