Join Us for Friday Nights on the Lawn

Grab your family and your face coverings and join us for a night out on the North Lawn (where R. Buckminster Fuller’s Fly’s Eye Dome is located)!

Every Friday evening between August 14 and October 30, Crystal Bridges is offering a free, outdoor family-friendly concert or performance on the North Lawn. We call it Friday Nights on the Lawn

Some evenings will feature a live music concert, others will offer a family performance with dancing and fun. An art activity will be available for entertainment during the show. Bring your own blanket, or use one of our lawn chairs, and enjoy an evening outdoors with live entertainment!


Reserve Your Free Tickets Here

We ask that you please reserve tickets for each household member planning to attend so we know to expect you. 


For Your Safety

We are still very aware of health concerns involving COVID-19 during this time. Face coverings must be worn at all times. In order to maintain physical distancing, circles will be drawn on the lawn for each household group. Visitors may remove their face covering to eat or drink only while inside their circle.

Social Connecting Murals (August 18-31)

Earlier this summer, the Momentary and Crystal Bridges developed a social connecting campaign to bring messages of hope and joy to isolated groups affected by COVID-19. As part of this campaign, nine local artists were commissioned to create original artworks inspired by the word “TOGETHER.” Those artworks were designed on postcards and murals as part of a traveling exhibition that went to 22 sites around Northwest Arkansas. These murals will be on display on the North Lawn for everyone to enjoy August 18-31. Check them out during a Friday Nights on the Lawn event this month! They are currently on view at the Momentary Green until August 16.


Friday Nights on the Lawn are presented on the Coca-Cola Stage.
