The Purpose

The mission of the Arkansas River Valley Lawn & Garden Show is horticulture education for the citizens of the Arkansas River Valley. The mission is accomplished by: (1) providing an annual Lawn & Garden Show; (2) providing financial support to the Arkansas River Valley Master Gardeners and the Learning Fields at Chaffee Crossing.


The ARVLGS is a great community and regional event which features a unique blend of education, beauty, special features, and product information.


The theme for the 2020 show is "Through the Garden Gate."  As you stroll through the various displays, regardless of the weather outside, the Expo Center at Kay Rogers Park will be magically transformed into a springtime paradise.


Educating the public about gardening, landscaping, and other horticulture topics is the primary purpose of the Lawn & Garden Show. This year there will be an incredible set of speakers.  


The show also features the Fort Smith Council of Garden Clubs' annual flower design show and horticulture judging.   


Our show provides the opportunity to meet local experts in landscaping, plant care, outdoor living spaces design, along with the newest & best gardening products, all under one roof.
