Coming off the success of the 2021 concert series that sparked a big increase in visitors to downtown Rogers, Railyard Live is building on the inaugural season and releasing an expanded lineup for 2022. The concert series introduced itself last year as a cultural draw, filling downtown with live music and excitement. This year, Railyard Live seeks to grow its audience and solidify the series as a top “thing to do” in Northwest Arkansas. The 2022 season begins with a Cinco de Mayo event featuring authentic music, food and dance in collaboration with Papa Rap and Latinas en Bici.
“Live music brings the community together. What I noticed about last season was the vast diversity of people at each concert. There is a real positive impact on our culture and downtown.”
- Mayor Greg Hines

“People can expect to see a healthy balance of their favorites and some acts new to the Railyard Live stage in 2022. We are so proud to establish a consistently high standard of quality with the artists we have. Whether you know the artist or not, you can count on good music and a good time that will always be worth checking out”
- Justin Pounds, Music & Events Coordinator
