Rogers_NWAChampionship_LPGA_signing_kids_2015Celebrating its 10th anniversary event, the Walmart NW Arkansas Championship presented by P&G will return June 20 – 26 to Pinnacle Country Club in Rogers. Along with the women’s professional golf tournament, there is a week-long lineup of additional activities, including a 5k, community concert, and an expanded and rebranded two-day food festival.

The event starts Monday, June 20 with Pantene Beautiful Lengths, a community driven hair donation ceremony, at the Walmart AMP. Popular staples of the golf event will return, such as the Walmart Kids Center presented by Dove, Hallmark Autograph Alley and the Gatorade Loudest Hole on Tour (No. 17), in addition to a number of events outside of the golf course. In partnership with the Walton Arts Center, the Walmart AMP will once again be home to events aimed at the broader community such as a two-day food festival, the 5K @ the LPGA benefitting Mercy and a Rachel Platten community concert courtesy of Walmart.

The two-day food festival debuted in 2015 and will return under the new name of BITE NW Arkansas. It will again include Taste of NW Arkansas, a grand tasting style event featuring local restaurants and chefs, and the Beer & Burger Fest, which aims to feature the best local and national brews paired with select restaurants’ burger offerings.

Ticket sales for events associated with #NWAChampionship Week as well as Volunteer Registration will begin on March 1. Visit www.NWAChampionship.com to stay up to date with event news and information.
