Additional Event Details

This 1948 stadium is a fine example of an Art Deco-style sporting arena. Listed in the Arkansas Register of Historic Places on September 28, 1998, the War Memorial Stadium was designed as a large-scale sports venue for the city of Little Rock and as a living memorial to the Arkansas veterans and fallen soldiers of World War II. When it was formally dedicated in September of 1948, the stadium was declared a memorial to the memory of her native sons and daughters who have given so much that we might have our freedom. With an initial seating capacity of just over 31,000, the stadium today can hold more than 54,000 spectators. War Memorial Stadium has hosted over 200 Razorback football games, as well as many other Arkansas collegiate and high school teams and even an NFL game. The stadium has also hosted soccer games, major concerts and famous entertainers throughout its 70-year history. (Note: Date is moved from first Friday due to the July 4th holiday the week before.)
