Roots Fest Day 3

Notes from 2017 Roots Festival

Posted: August 27, 2017 at 9 a.m.

Day 3 of the 2017 Roots Festival included the KUAF tradition of the live broadcast of Ozarks at Large hosted at the Fayetteville Public Library. Following a day of masterclasses at the Brightwater culinary institute in Bentonville led by festival chefs, an impromptu community-style BBQ brought four distinguished chefs and students of the institute together for a fun meal.

Day 3 of Roots Fest 2017, Friday, was the first full day of Roots programming -- 9 a.m. to after midnight. With free community programming happening in both Fayetteville and Bentonville on top of the culinary events and music lineup, it is impossible for one to hit every single thing happening at Roots. It does, however, provide the opportunity to pick and choose from topics of interest or new experiences.
