Quality Time in the Little Rock River Market

Posted on January 24, 2020

This month, we’re featuring some of the most common New Year Resolutions and how the Little Rock River Market can help you achieve your goals.  This week is all about how you can utilize the River Market to spend more quality time with friends and family in the new year.

In today’s world, it can be a challenge to make quality time with friends and family, which why this resolution is one of the top five out there, but the River Market District can help!  Any of the events, shows or places you’ll find in the River Market make a great adult play date for friends, and our family-friendly daytime scene is full of things to see and do. Whatever you choose, an adventure awaits! 

The River Market is the place for fun in Little Rock, so grab your friends and plan a date to get out and enjoy our great eateries for lunch, dinner or even brunch, or make plans to check out our live music scene with regular shows at Stickyz and Revolution Music Room as well as acoustic shows at Dugan’s Pub and Nexus Coffee and Creative. You can also explore our Entertainment District with your drink in hand on weekends while you peruse the area for your next destination!

The River Market is also home to some of Little Rock’s biggest and best events— from the Little Rock Marathon to the Little Rock Farmers' Market. Annual festivals the Six Bridges Book Festival (link to Arkansas literary festival), Pops on the River, Arkansas Italian Food & Culture Festival, Central AR Pridefest and the annual World Cheese Dip Championship, make for great quality time spent with friends and family throughout the year.  You can also join us at seasonal events like Movies in the Park, held Wednesday nights in June and July or Jazz in the Park, held Wednesday nights in April and September. Make sure to visit our events page for details on all the happenings in the River Market year-round.
