War Eagle Mill Fall Arts & Craft Fair Oct. 19-22 in Northwest Arkansas
There is no better place this time of year than taking a road trip through Northwest Arkansas and visiting War Eagle Mill in Rogers, Ark. Beginning this Thursday, Oct. 19 and running until Sunday Oct. 22, War Eagle Mill is the site of one of the largest arts and crafts fairs in the region.
Winding through the countryside and over rolling hills, you'll find a place nestled between tall trees surrounded by fall foliage everywhere you turn. Seeing War Eagle Mill for the first time is like driving into a Thomas Kincaid painting, in a part of the land that seems untouched by time.
For four days, War Eagle Mill comes alive with over 250 arts and crafts vendors selling everything from handcrafted items, stoneware, wreaths, candles, soaps, antiques, jewelry, homemade quilts, oil paintings, country collectibles and much more.
An d while your there make sure you visit the Bean Palace Café located on the third floor of the Mill serving up some great home cooked food for breakfast and lunch. There will be plenty of food vendors on the grounds as well, with a variety of food and snacks to eat while you shop.
The War Eagle Mill Fall Arts & Crafts Fair opens from 8AM until 5PM Thursday-Saturday, and Sunday until 4PM.
There are several ways to get there but the best way, if you are driving from Texarkana is when you arrive in Fayetteville take Hwy 45 to Hwy 303 North to Hwy 412 to Hwy 303 North. From that point the drive is only 8 miles to the mill.
