The Museum of Discovery has announced that it will take over the planning and execution of Springfest, the free family festival presented the last two Aprils by Riverfest. The third annual Springfest will be held in and around the First Security Amphitheatre and the River Market pavilions from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, April 7, 2018.
Activities and attractions planned for Springfest 2018 include:
* Super Retriever Series – featuring the best dog and handler teams from around the
country as they compete in a variety of activities
* Ruff on the River Pooch Parade – showcasing the best-dressed dogs and dog parents Arkansas has to offer
* Hero Zone – festival-goers’ chance to interact with those who serve us every day – the Little Rock Police and Fire Departments, MEMS, Arkansas State Police and Pulaski County Sheriff’s Department
* Bounce Zone – obstacle courses, bounce houses and a giant slide
* Construction Zone – the chance for kids to climb on and sit in large construction equipment and pilot their own toy trucks and dozers through the sand
* Museum of Discovery Awesome Science Shows – experience the same “wow” kind of science that landed a museum educator on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” and led to museum educators being featured as a top attraction every day of the 2017 Arkansas State Fair
* Community Dance and Cheer Teams … and Bands! – Celebrate the talent that abounds in Central Arkansas as area dance teams, cheer teams and bands perform
* Local food trucks and arts-and-craft vendors
And there will be plenty of other activities, from face painting to “stomp rockets” to some of the popular activities featured at Tinkerfest at the Museum of Discovery.

The Museum of Discovery is Arkansas’s premier science and technology center, and our mission is to ignite a passion for science, technology, engineering, arts and math in a dynamic, interactive environment. Our museum is the oldest in the state of Arkansas, founded in 1927. We became the Museum of Discovery in 1998 when we moved to our River Market location. Thanks to a $9.2 million grant from the Donald W. Reynolds Foundation, we debuted 90 new, interactive, hands-on exhibits in 2012.
