It's time almost time for the Dogwood Festival to begin!
This weekend, thousands of visitors and residents will be traveling downtown Siloam Springs for the 48th Annual Dogwood Festival, presented by the Siloam Springs Chamber of Commerce.
Here is a look at the roads that will be closed.
Here's the breakdown:
WEDNESDAY: Community Building Parking lot and University Street from the 4-way stop to College Street only. College Street will be available.
THURSDAY: University Street will be closed from the 4-way stop to Maple Street (by the Parks and Rec Building), across the bridge, and then up to Benton Street. Wright Street will be closed from University Street to Ashley Street, and Ashley Street will be closed from Wright Street to Maple Street. Central Street, by the Chamber Office, will also be closed from Broadway to Mt. Olive.
FRIDAY: Beginning at 7 a.m., all the previously listed roads will remain closed, as well as University Street from Broadway to Mt. Olive for Handicap Parking.
All streets will remain closed until Sunday evening.
Throughout the weekend there will be officers with the Siloam Springs Police Department directing traffic at the 4-way stop. We ask that you please be patient as you drive through the Downtown area so that we can keep all Dogwood Festival attendees safe.
For the Dogwood 10K, 5K & Fun Run, here are the roads that will be closed on Saturday from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m.
New this year is the second Handicap Parking Lot and Shuttle for Saturday and Sunday of the Dogwood Festival. We will continue to offer handicap parking on University Street, between Arvest and 28 Springs all three days. To utilize this area, you must have a handicap tag or license plate, and you must enter from Mt. Olive and exit on Broadway. We are now able to offer a second parking area in the City Hall parking lot on Saturday and Sunday. We will utilize the wheelchair accessible vans to shuttle attendees to the Festival and will then shuttle them back.
