We had an epic celebration at this year’s Frisco Festival presented by Cox Communication! Check out these photos, posts and media mentions to see how much fun everyone had in Downtown Rogers!
Enjoy the food, music and fun of Frisco Festival presented by Cox Communication! FREE fun for all ages, this annual festival is a tradition in Rogers, growing bigger and better every year since 1984!
Hang out in the Nabholz Entertainment Garden to eat your way through the festival. Start with the Rogers Rotary Catfish Fry on Friday evening, then come back for a pancake breakfast hosted by First Baptist Church at 8th & Olive. Don’t forget to taste the very best grilled chicken featuring the “secret sauce!” Whitey’s Frisco Chicken sponsored by Regions Bank will be available both Friday evening and Saturday. Sample a variety of chili recipes entered in the Arvest Chili-Salsa-Peno Competition. You’ll be smelling the smoke of Saturday’s dinner all weekend when the Early Risers Rotary Club brings you tasty BBQ from Rubbin’ Butts on Saturday night.
The Nabholz Entertainment Garden is open to all ages, offering shady seating under the tents, or in the sunshine. Dance and sing along with the live entertainment on the Frisco Stage. Adults can also sip on a cold beer or glass of wine to raise funds for Main Street Rogers.
And if that’s not enough, you can taste the treats from a variety of food trucks and concessions stands. Don’t miss Baller Food Truck or Pure Joy Ice Cream, both locally-owned and operated businesses, along with funnel cakes and lemonade from Carsten’s Concessions and Scott Food Service, washed down with Billy Jack’s Root Beer, with Mountain Home Kettle Corn. Try some Shuckin’ Delicious Corn and a shaved ice, and don’t forget to grab a pizza from The Primal Knead.
Kids of all ages will enjoy the Murphy Brothers Carnival Rides sponsored by First National Bank of NWA. Ride tickets are available for $1 each (most rides take 3-5 tickets) or you can ride as many times as you want all day with a wristband for $25.
The Kids’ Zone will feature even more fun activities including the Bungee Trampoline, remote-controlled cars, giant inflatable slides, a climbing wall and more, located on S. Second Street between Walnut and Elm.
Every year, Frisco Festival brings the best local and regional bands to the Frisco Stage! To celebrate the ’80s this year, we’re excited to bring back “Boom Kinetic” to get the party started! Then the totally awesome “Members Only” ’80s cover band headlines with all your favorites for an unbelievable set under the stars.
Saturday will open with performances by the talented corps from Ballet Westside. Don’t miss the action of the jalapeno-eating contest at 1:30 p.m., followed by a mellow set by Benjamin Del Shreve. Finalists in the “Frisco Idol” contest will take the stage at 5 p.m., to warm up the crowd. “Dead Strangs” will amp up the excitement as we get ready for the biggest local band, “Backroad Anthem,” to country-rock the house!
