Eureka Springs, Arkansas
August, 2013

Summer’s winding down, but there’s still time to get in a much-needed getaway to Eureka Springs. If you like Yard Sales, then this weekend is the time to come to Eureka for our city-wide yard sales. Maps to the sales are available at the Chamber.

Art, music and cars are all reasons to visit Eureka Springs. The Second Saturday Gallery Stroll will showcase local and one-of-a-kind pieces available no where else. The Annual Bluegrass Weekend will feature wonderful talent and a Watermelon Social. The Banjo Rally is also held the last weekend of August. It’s just too good to miss.

Locals and visitors alike look forward to the Annual VW weekend. Nearly everyone has a connection to a VW sometime in the past. Come admire the restoration and preservation of a cultural icon of the 60′s and 70′s.

Anytime is a great time to visit Eureka Springs for a relaxing getaway. Make your reservation to Escape to our Ozarks Bed and Breakfast today!
