Based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and directives from Arkansas Governor Asa Hutchinson and Fayetteville Mayor Lioneld Jordan to suspend large events and mass gatherings for eight weeks in order to help reduce the spread of coronavirus, we have suspended events at Walton Arts Center.

We are working with resident companies, artists and tours to reschedule performances for later this year if possible. Below is a list of shows according to their current status.

We would like to extend a huge thank you to all of the generous patrons who have donated their ticket value back to us. To date we've seen more than $33,000 in ticket donations! We are humbled and grateful for your support.

  • Art of Wine rescheduled for Sept. 8 & 11, 2020
  • Bonnie Bishop rescheduled for Sept. 10 at 7:30pm

What happens with my tickets?

When performances are rescheduled, your tickets will be good for the new date. You only need to contact us if you cannot attend.

If a show is shown as postponed, the show is being rescheduled but don’t yet have a confirmed date. Please hold your tickets until that new date is announced.

If a show has to be canceled, patrons with tickets will be contacted. The options for your tickets are:

      • Donate the full amount of your tickets, or even a portion of your total, to support the missions of Walton Arts Center or SoNA. As nonprofit arts organizations, we rely on the audiences we serve for financial support. By donating your tickets, you will provide vital support for the performing arts that inspire and enrich our community. 100 percent of the money donated will fund arts education programming - this does not count toward your Friends donations.
      • Receive a ticketing credit on your account that can be used in the 2020/21 season.
      • Receive a refund.

Thank you for your continued support, patience and understanding.
