Dickens Christmas

The Bella Vista Public Library is very excited to be hosting Dickens Christmas this December! We are looking forward to ushering in a new holiday tradition in Northwest Arkansas. The event will run from 4:00-8:00 p.m. on Friday, December 8th at the Bella Vista Public Library. There will be beautiful lights, cheerful characters, and some delightful hot cocoa. Santa Claus is even going to make an appearance! This is a perfect opportunity to enjoy some community holiday cheer and do some Christmas shopping from the fine artisans and craftsmen right here in Northwest Arkansas.
