Eureka Is Alive In The Winter!
Many believe that Eureka Springs "shuts down" in winter and while that may have been the case in the past, but it is certainly no longer true. While some of our residents and merchants do reduce hours for winter, our slowest season, Eureka Springs is not closed in the winter season and we're definitely NOT in hibernation.
Here, some of our winter highlights include:
Romantic Valentine's Day events and activities
January 16-19, 2020
The Brewery Collectibles Club of America Show at Best Western Inn of the Ozarks
Then March 2020 arrives and with it - better weather - and then we're back into Spring, Summer and Fall events, activities and celebrations.
One local resident, Malissa Bain, who works at The Cat House, said it best recently with this post on her Facebook page on December 18, 2019:
