Support area nonprofits this weekend!

It’s gonna be a busy weekend… and lots of fun, with opportunities to support two awesome area nonprofits that help make Hot Springs the unique and creative town that it is.

This Friday, Maxine’s Live is hosting a fundraiser for the Hot Springs Documentary Film Festival. Doors open at 6 p.m. with the music starting at 7 p.m. The line up includes Chuck Dodson, Gus & Call, Bizarro Buddha, Walking Lawsuits, The Global Test, and cinePLOSION with DJ Mike Shaeffer.

The fun continues on Sunday at Artchurch Studios with more live music, and some great food! Artchurch Studios - in conjunction with JV Farms, Free Greens Inc, the Spa City Co-op and the Historic Downtown Farmers Market - is hosting the Spa City Locavores’ Community Bar-B-Que & Concert Summer Fundraiser. The event will be held from 2-8 p.m. at the Artchurch with the Bar-B-Que from 2-5 p.m. and the Concert from 5-8 p.m.

The "Bar-b-que" will feature pork, chicken and beef from local, sustainable organic farmers. It will be followed by live music with the Artchurch Studios' July House Concert Series featuring several touring acts performing. Tickets are $5 for the barbecue and $8 for the concert, or $10 for both.

There will also be an auction with a variety of items up for grabs, including some goodies from Larkmartin & Co! So get out this weekend and support area nonprofits while enjoy live music and great company. And don’t forget to support your local soap shop - Larkmartin & Co.! We’re open 10-5 Monday through Friday at 340 Ouachita Ave.
