Downtown Update 4/12/2019 - An Alley Party in the River Market and more!

 
 
 
A weekly look at what's happening in
downtown Little Rock, Arkansas
 
 
 
Join us in the River Market for our second Alley Party of the year. Presented by UA Little Rock Downtown, we're celebrating their new downtown doorstep with Stone's Throw beer, lively music, and a ton of school spirit!
 
We are very excited for Bella Vita Jewelry's new storefront near the corner of 6th and Main Streets. Check out her new digs tonight at 2nd Friday Art Night (and then use the free trolley to check out all of the other venues)!
