North Little Rock will host the Legends of Arkansas this Saturday at the North Shore Riverwalk.


It will start at 2 p.m. and last until 10 p.m. that day.


Admission is $5 for adults and free for children.


The event is in its fifth year but this is the first time it has been held in support of The Van, a North Little Rock-based organization that battles homelessness across the state.


Legends of Arkansas will continue its all-Arkansas tradition with local artists, vendors, food trucks, and breweries all being featured at the event. Knox Hamilton, Dazz & Brie, Rodney Block, and Brian Nahlen Band will all perform throughout the day, giving attendees a variety of Arkansas music styles.


Legends of Arkansas will continue to feature the family-friendly atmosphere that characterizes its events including arts and crafts, circus arts, and kids activities. Families with children of all ages are welcome and encouraged to come out to enjoy the fun.


All proceeds from the festival will solely benefit The Van, whose sole mission is to find and serve our unsheltered homeless neighbors. The public is invited to drop-off donations of blankets, coats, and socks, which will be distributed by The Van in Central Arkansas.


The event “will take place right before our cold season begins,” said Aaron Reddin, founder of The Van. “We will be ready to distribute the coats and blankets,.”


Each person who attends Legends of Arkansas in 2017 won’t just be having fun but will be helping to tackle a problem across the metro area and the rest of the state.
