First Security Amphitheater

about pops on the river

Pops on the River, presented by the Arkansas Democrat-Gazette, will take place Friday, July 4, in downtown Little Rock. In it’s 31st year, the annual event has expanded to include more activities, additional hours, bigger fireworks show and a larger event site. This free community event is the largest Fourth of the July event in the state as more than 30,000 are drawn downtown to the events surrounding Pops on the River.


Pops has continued to grow these last three decades in no small part because it has held true to its roots and continues to focus on a family-friendly environment complete with fantastic food, fireworks, Salute to the Troops focus, and music by the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra. It is a heralded community event that many remember for years to come.


Pops on the River will begin at noon in the River Market area of downtown Little Rock with free activities for kids in the Kid’s Pavilion, a classic car show, a marketplace for shopping, food trucks and entertainment for all ages.


Entertainment inside the Riverfest Amphitheater will include Oh Say! Can you Sing? contest, live music and the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra. Music Director Philip Man will conduct this year’s performance. Fireworks will begin at approximately 9:30 p.m. and are shot off the Main Street Bridge.


The event is free to the public and a portion of

proceeds benefit a local charity. This year’s benefiting charity is Our House Children’s Center.
