War Eagle Fair

War Eagle Fair
11037 High Sky Inn Rd

 War Eagle Fair was a project of, by and for little people: A group of little old ladies exhibiting their weaving. When that attracted a greater than expected response, other unsung artists and craftsmen were invited to participate. There has never been a government subsidy or sponsorship, no professional nor commercial assistance, just unpaid volunteers led by an Arkansas farmer and his wife. It has all happened in a magical place,

In Each fall, War Eagle hosts one of the largest crafts fairs in the country. Arts and crafts exhibitors from Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Kansas and beyond come to display and sell their wares. Customers come from all over the U.S. Blanche Elliott and a group of fellow weavers founded the original War Eagle Fair over 50 years ago as a means to preserve and display the skills and traditions of Ozark craftspeople. As the fair grew, more and more people made their way to the event at Mrs. Elliott’s home, historic War Eagle Mills Farm near Springdale. Over the years, the rural site has attracted all sorts of national attention including coverage from The New York Times and Southern Living. Today numerous fairs take place adjacent to the original fair and across Northwest Arkansas
