We have stepped it up this year and added even more fun entertainment so grab some friends and head to downtown this season for great shopping, delicious food, and a whole lot of cheer!

Toy & Donation Drive for Northwest Arkansas Circle of Friends - Arkansas Children's Foundation
Several businesses in downtown Rogers will be drop-off sites for the NWCOF this holiday season. We will be kicking off the toy drive and ask that anyone who is interested, please bring new unwrapped toys in their original packaging to donate. Doing a little shopping in downtown? Great! Bring that cute toy you bought with you and drop it off…it’s that easy! Also keep an eye out for the donation tins at participating merchants in downtown. If you have any spare changing bogging down your pockets or purse, we will be happy to take that off your hands to give to a good cause!

Downtown Gift Give-A-Way
The downtown merchants and restaurants are bringing back the Downtown Gift Give-A-Way again this year! Last year was a huge success, and we want to help someone again this holiday season. Downtown businesses have donated gifts to fill the tub inside The Urban Tub on Walnut Street. It will be on display so you can check out all the great goodies. Then sign up in any participating business to enter YOUR name in the drawing to win EVERY SINGLE GIFT!!! Drawing will be held and winner announced on December 3rd at 3 PM. Catch us on Facebook live to see who won! 

Holiday Carolers
You heard it right! Yes, we will have holiday songs being sung throughout downtown by several local area school choirs and downtown church choirs. Come support the local choirs and hear some really talented singers as they bring downtown to life with classic holiday songs. The best way to spread holiday cheer, is singing loud for all to hear! Some participating groups this year will be Northside Elementary School, FUMC Rogers, Dazzling Diamonds Chorus, Rogers Heritage High School, Haas Hall Academy Rogers PFC, and First Baptist Olive Street. Carolers will perform on from 12pm to 8pm on Saturday, December 2nd and on Sunday, December 3rd from 12pm to 4pm.
