2FAN Events

The art, history and culture social scene in downtown Little Rock

Every second Friday of the month several organizations in downtown Little Rock host an evening of art and fun. A couple of our DAH museums, the Old State House Museum and Historic Arkansas Museum, are loyal participants. Each month our museums host new exhibits and refreshments free of charge. It's a great time to experience authentic Arkansas and see new and old faces. The downtown trolley is a great way to hop from venue to venue. Check out the map, to see all the host venues.
