Depot Days Festival


The 22nd Annual Depot Days Festival is a community wide effort in Newport, Arkansas to celebrate our rich musical history. Our connection to the original Rock ‘N Roll Highway 67 comes alive every year in a two day festival of fun, food and live music in downtown Newport, Arkansas on the banks of the White River.  The Depot Days Festival is the third major festival of Monster Nights:  Newport’s Downtown Entertainment Series.  The Festival will be held in the new park on Front Street in downtown Newport (GPS 412 Front Street, Newport, AR 72112).
