This week the Argenta Downtown Council (ADC) was awarded a National Main Street Forward award at the virtual national Main Street Conference. Below is a video that was played at the conference.

The ADC also created a new video promoting our new third weekend event, “The Argenta Dogtown Throwdown.” I think it captures that Argenta Vibe!

On to this weekend

Due to impending bad weather, we had to adjust our weekend schedule. If you get a chance, come on out and enjoy Music, Food and Fun! There is something for everyone with some Retro Country at The Argenta Farmers Market, Showtunes at the Plaza, Funky Sounds on Saturday and some Arkansas Rock and Roll on Sunday Live on the Library Steps. The full schedule is below.

  • 7:30am – 10:30 – The Argenta Farmer’s Market at the Argenta Plaza – Live music by the Salty Dogs
    Started as a lark retro-country act, the quartet immediately found chemistry, along with a lot of joy, as they dug into their craft. Their sound has expanded over a decade and a half, from uber-twang and purist classic country to equal parts 1954 Nashville, 1961 Bakersfield, and 1972 Everywhere.
    The band has played countless shows sharing the stage with such likes of Willie Nelson, Hank Williams, Jr., Old Crow Medicine Show, Billy Joe Shaver, Robert Earl Keen, The Gourds, Pete Anderson, David Rawlings, Kinky Friedman, Junior Brown, Kelly Willis and many more

    Black River Pearl is a rock band. A Psychedelic, Garage Rock, Rock Band. From the parts of Arkansas where the foothills meet the delta, the Pearl emerged from the river bed in 2012 with a sound that sweeps you off your feet and pulls you out to a place where you forget about everything and nothing is taken to serious.
