With the return of Razorback football and live music at George’s Majestic Lounge Friday night, it almost seems like a normal fall weekend in Fayetteville.


For those looking for one last drive-in fix, the 112 Drive-In is showing “The Lost Boys” at 8 p.m. Friday night, followed by the original “Nightmare on Elm Street.” Saturday will be a virtual concert by Kane Brown featuring Lauren Alaina, Granger Smith and Jimmie Allen. Tickets are $56 for early purchase and $76 for general admission. Sunday’s showing will be “Nightmare on Elm Street” at 8 p.m. followed by “The Lost Boys.” This is the last public weekend for the drive-in; all weekends in October are reserved for corporation events.

The Nace Brothers are set to play at George’s Majestic Lounge as a part of their Friday Night Happy Hour. The show will be held outside and also live streamed on social media. Tickets are $8 the day of the show.

Following the show, there will be a comedy night special on the same stage. Tickets are $10.


The Fayetteville Farmers Market, a Saturday morning staple, will be open from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the Downtown Square. Patrons can find pumpkins, baked treats and fresh veggies, among other goods. Masks are required at the farmers market and a one-way entrance and exit has been implemented.

The Arkansas Razorbacks will be taking on No. 4 ranked Georgia at 3 p.m. Saturday in Donald W. Reynolds Stadium. For those not able to make it to the game because of COVID-19 attendance restrictions, or because they would rather watch from home, the game will be shown on the SEC Network channel.

For those wanting to get out of the house and out of this world, the Walmart AMP will be showing “Guardians of the Galaxy” Saturday evening. Gates open at 7 p.m. and the film begins at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10.


NWA residents looking to wind down from the weekend with a little live music are in luck. Simeon Basil will be playing at Six Twelve Coffeehouse & Bar on Sunday evening. The show starts at 6 p.m. For those looking for a little something extra, they can arrive early for happy hour from 3-6:12 p.m. All cocktails, beer, wine and food are 20% off.
