Festival Park is located in downtown Fayetteville at the corner of Ray Avenue and Rowan Street. It was opened in April of 2007 and is a landmark for the downtown Fayetteville area. Festival park is the perfect venue for many events, festivals, and concerts in the Fayetteville area, supporting large crowds and community involvement.


The first Fayetteville Walk to End Alzheimer’s had over 200 attendees in 2011, while growing close to 1,000 people last year! There is much to look forward to with this change in venue and space. Jennifer Briand from the Alzheimer’s Association said, “By moving the location to Festival Park, we are giving ourselves more exposure, as well as, utilizing a space we can continue to grow into for years to come. The Promise Garden Ceremony is the most important part of the Walk and by holding the event in Festival Park, we are giving more people the opportunity to clearly listen to it and enjoy it.”
