Last Night Fayetteville On Hiatus Until 2020

FAYETTEVILLE (KFSM) — The “Hog Drop” won’t ring in 2019, as Last Night Fayetteville is taking a year off to recuperate from overseeing seven years of New Year’s Eve celebrations on the downtown square.

In a Facebook post on Thursday (Nov. 1), the group said it would return for New Year’s Eve 2020 and thanked residents “for being a part of Arkansas’ largest New Year’s Eve celebration.”

The group said planning the event — which includes live performances — takes about six months of work.

“After seven years of tireless work, sacrifice, and relentless determination, we’re taking a year off to rest, relax and refresh our spirits.”
