Uncommon Communities Announces El Paso Pop Up and Farm To Fork Dinner

RUSSELLVILLE, Ark. (September 29, 2016) — Uncommon Communities of Pope County will host the El Paso Pop Up and Farm to Fork Dinner on Saturday, October 22, 2016. The Pop Up will be 11 am to 5 pm on El Paso Avenue with West “L” Street as the northern end point and West Parkway as the southern. The Farm to Fork Dinner will take place at 7 pm on West “C” Street with a 6 pm reception at Depot Park.

While being a block party, Pop Up El Paso will be used as a community opinion gathering spot. The Pop Up will be a collaboration with Arkansas Tech University and Miller Boskus Lack Architects, P.A. as a live rendering of what is possible on El Paso Avenue linking downtown Russellville and ATU. Shops, services, parks, food trucks, music, and transportation options will all be demonstrated in a festival atmosphere. By creating a fully functional space, even if for a day, the citizens of Russellville will be able to envision the future of El Paso Avenue.

The Farm to Fork Dinner aims to showcase River Valley grown ingredients prepared by a local chef to be announced soon in a community setting. Guests will savor a fantastic al fresco meal surrounded by Historic Downtown Russellville. Limited tickets are $50 plus fees, and are available on Eventbrite, Uncommon Communities of Pope and Yell Counties Facebook page, & through Uncommon Communities Representatives.
