A lot of locals are upset that they moved the fairgrounds out of Bentonville, but what are you expecting. Having the fair downtown was crowded, and with the urban revitalization, it would make the fair more of an eyesore than an attraction. Where the grounds are now provides lots of space and more venues for attractions. It's out of the way for some, but it's substantially better.
Go out here for Vintage Market Days. Always find something worth buying
Not a bad place but hard to park and get around
Great facility but they need indoor facilities with concrete floors.
It's a local fairground - nothing super special, but fun for kids.
