Enjoy Free Parking During the Christmas Holiday 

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. — The City of Fayetteville is waiving parking fees during the Christmas holiday. Parking will be free in City of Fayetteville parking lots and on-street parking spaces within the Dickson Street Entertainment District and Downtown Square Business District beginning Thursday, Dec. 23, through Christmas Day. 

Paid parking will be reinstated at 2 p.m. in the Dickson Street District on Sunday, Dec. 26, and at 8 a.m. in the Square District on Monday, Dec. 27.

City officials ask drivers to be mindful of spaces reserved for Lights of the Ozarks vendors on the Square and marked residential parking spaces throughout the districts.

Parking in the Dickson Street Entertainment District is free before 2 p.m. daily and uses a pay-by-space system from 2 p.m. to 2 a.m. Payment can be made at any of the kiosks located throughout the area, as well as the five kiosks located in the Spring Street Parking Deck or by using the convenient pay-by-phone mobile app.

Parking in the Downtown Square Business District is enforced Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. (except on City holidays). Meters are adjacent to most of the parking spaces. Free parking for a two-hour limit is available in spaces directly on the Square.
