Argenta Plaza Grand Opening Set For Nov. 30

1 min read

The grand opening of Argenta Plaza, the much anticipated $5.36 million city gathering place at 510 Main St. in downtown North Little Rock, will coincide with the city’s Northern Lights Festival.

The festival, set for 5:30-9:30 p.m. Nov. 30 at the plaza, is not a new event, but it will feature the tallest Christmas tree in the city’s history (38 feet plus a 4-foot star). There will also be free entertainment and numerous activities.

The city of North Little Rock, North Little Rock Convention & Visitors Bureau, North Little Rock Chamber of Commerce, Argenta Downtown Council and Argenta Community Theater organized the festival and grand opening.

The doors open at 5; the grand opening ceremony is planned for 5:30 with Mayor Joe Smith and other officials.

The Christmas tree lighting ceremony will follow at 6:30. The Big Dam Horns Concert is at 7 p.m., and the festival will end with a fireworks show at 9.

The plaza will be managed by the NLRCVB after the festival and be available to rent for public as well as private events.

It is comprised of a “front porch” area with modern swings; a stage with a 40-foot video projection wall; a water wall; fountains; and a “backyard” area with trees. 

The entire plaza, except for the backyard area, where the new $15 million First Orion headquarters is being constructed, will be open on Nov. 30.
