Welcome to Bentonville!

Our towns are the heart of America. Some say that they’re gone, moved on, or simply faded away. But there’s a new American town on the map. It’s a town with a big heart and even bigger ambition. A town where modern progress meets rich history, where the arts meet innovation, and where companies meet communities. A town you can explore with all of your senses: from fresh air in the Ozarks, to fresh cuisine on your plate. That town is Bentonville, Arkansas. A town to visit, to see, to breathe, and to discover: “Now this is a great town.” Visit Bentonville — a new American town.

I just wanted to drop you a note of sincere thanks for your hospitality to me and my team while we were in Bentonville representing Brownsville Bred. It was always a dream to be a part of the festival and I am really honored to have been included with my work. The festival and the work are very much aligned.”
