Downtown Rogers Farmers Market @ Downtown Rogers
Jul 15 @ 8:00 am – 1:00 pm


Every Saturday May 6 – October 28, 2017 | 8am to 1pm | Vendor List

The City of Rogers purchased an auto repair shop in 2015 on Cherry Street, and has renovated the space to be home to the new Downtown Rogers Farmers Market, managed by Main Street Rogers. The market opened April 30th of 2016, the market opened with over 40 vendors in drive-up bays. The indoor-outdoor facility is very unique and vendor friendly, and is expected to attract some of the best vendors from Northwest Arkansas to sell their goods.

The new market will not only be a place for farmers to have a permanent home to sell their goods, but also a gathering place for the community with space for food trucks and access to the Razorback Greenway trails which goes through the market itself and continues down to the new Railyard Bike Park.  Families will now be able to ride their bikes to the market together, shop the market, dine together, and enjoy the activities of a revitalizing and growing Downtown Rogers district.

Hank Williams, Jr. @ Walmart AMP
Jul 15 @ 7:30 pm

HANK WILLIAMS JR

Gates open at 6pm. Music starts at 7:30pm. | Tickets start at $41* (plus applicable fees)

Hank Williams Jr., known to many American football fans for his “Monday Night Football Song,” decided to change the lyrics to “All my Sarah friends are coming over tonight.”

“Stop and think it over,” the big man with the hat and glasses has asked, from a thousand stages, in front of millions of people. “Try to put yourself in my position.”

We can’t. We can imagine, but we can’t know. We can’t know what it’s like to be the only son of Hank Williams, the long gone and lonesome singer whose brief life transformed country music. We can’t know what it’s like to be linked to such a transformative force by blood and name but not by memory, to learn about a famous father from books and photos and others’ stories: Hank Williams died at age 29, when his son was three-years-old.v We can’t know what it was like to wrestle with that legacy, to try to honor all that came before, but not wind up a pale approximation of country’s greatest ghost. Born Randall Hank Williams, but singing as Hank Williams, Jr. before he was 10, the son never had much in the way of a career choice. The choice wasn’t whether he’d sing, but what, how and why. “Other kids could play cowboys and Indians and imagine that they’d grow up to be cowboys,” he wrote in his Living Proof autobiography. “I couldn’t do that. I knew that I would never grow up to be a cowboy or a fireman or the president of the United States. I knew I’d grow up to be a singer. That’s all there ever was, the only option, from the beginning.”

At the beginning, mother Audrey Williams worked to mold her son into a miniature version of his late father, and for 20 years he struggled, uncomfortably, to break the mold. When he finally found his own sound and style, he reached sales plateaus that his father never dreamed of: 20 gold albums, six platinum albums (one of which has sold more than five million copies) and 13 chart-topping albums. He has been selling out massive venues for a longer period of time than his father spent on earth. He has done more than honor his father’s legacy; he has extended it, enriched it, enhanced it and elevated it. “My name’s a reminder of a blues man that’s already gone,” he once sang. But the name “Hank Williams, Jr.” is much more than that …

Guided Snorkeling Excursion @ Rocky Branch Marina
Jul 17 @ 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm

Do you have a Schnorchel? We have them at Hobbs State Park

How well do you know your German navy slang? First recorded in 1940-1945, the name of the airshaft for German U-boats came from the German navy slang Schnorchel for “nose, or snout,”. Today when we go swimming and use one, we call it a snorkel.

Snorkeling is incredibly fun, relaxing, and a wonderful way to explore the world beneath the waves. You can just drift through the water, relax, and enjoy a previously unexplored, wet wonderland.

Snorkeling is the practice of swimming on or through a body of water while equipped with a diving mask, a shaped tube called a snorkel, and usually fins. Use of this equipment allows the snorkeler to observe underwater attractions for extended periods of time with relatively little effort. The primary appeal is the opportunity to observe underwater life in a natural setting without the complicated equipment and training required for scuba diving. Snorkeling appeals to all ages because of how little effort is involved.

Join your Hobbs State Park interpreter guide to truly appreciate Beaver Lake as few have. We will take a short pontoon boat ride to an unspoiled, quiet cove, searching for the hidden diversity of underwater life.

When:
Monday, July 17th from 1-4pm
Tuesday, July 25th from 1-4pm
Friday, July 28th from 1-4pm
Friday, August 4th from 1-4pm
Thursday, August 10th 1-4pm
Friday, August 25th 1-4pm
Thursday, August 31st 1-4pm

Wear appropriate clothing for swimming, including water shoes, and sunscreen. Participants must wear a life jacket. All participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult, and the adult must be in the water. Life jackets, masks, and snorkels provided.

Where: All participants meet at Rock Branch Marina, 8872 Rocky Branch Marina Road, Rogers, Arkansas 72756 (Hwy. 12 to 303 north, to Rocky Branch Marina Road)

Cost: $20 Adults (13 and up) and $10 Child (Up thru age 12)
Preregistration and payment required. To register call: 479-789-5000.
