We were in town for a funeral and stayed at a hotel right on the square. We really enjoyed walking around to see all of the beautiful holiday lights & check out the food trucks. The lights really made our photos fantastic!

Fayetteville downtown is a must visit, It's Faytown's heart. From shopping and food to pubs and venues. Farmers market and Xmas lights.

The Christmas lights on the Downtown Square are beautiful, they are definitely worth checking out. It’s free to go look at them, but, they do have pony rides & food trucks so take a little money with you.

It varies with the business. Most restaurants are open but most retail stores may be closed. Might want to check with the businesses.
