On November 2nd, The House of Songs, Jones Center, and Tyson Foods  held the Inaugural Springdale Cultural Festival, featuring Music, Art, Dance and Food from the South Asian, Marshellese, and Latin communities. 

The Jones Center halls filled with laughter and joy as these communities collaborated together, some for the first time. Lasting friendships and connections were made possible by this event and we couldn't be more grateful for the one who made it possible.
