By Kara Ault, Macaroni Kid Fayetteville and Rogers-Bentonville Publisher June 10, 2023


The vast number of VBS programs in Northwest Arkansas can offer a great way for kids to stay entertained, make friends and learn about the Bible.

All the VBS programs I've listed are free & open to the public. Most VBS programs include a snack, craft, music, games & fun, all while learning about the Bible stories. I have listed them in order of date.

Please contact me at  if you know of others that should be listed and I will update the list. Enjoy, and share with friends!
