Also on Saturday, free and low-cost workshops on food, arts, music, and outdoors “pop-up” at downtown merchants and around beautiful Lake Atalanta as part of the The Good Life Experience at Frisco Festival activities. You can choose from a variety of experiential learning topics like beer-making, art-making, cooking, yoga, wine-tasting, music-making and more.

The Frisco Festival has been delighting people from all over for more than three decades (35th year!) and is named in honor of Rogers' rich railroad heritage. From morning to night, you’ll find plenty to do – live music, street entertainment, kids’ zone, delicious food, art displays, and outdoor fun.
These events are hosted by Downtown Rogers Inc. (Frisco Festival) and the Rogers-Lowell Area Chamber of Commerce (The Good Life Experience at Frisco Festival) to honor our heritage, bring alive the best of Rogers and celebrate The Good Life Experience that we all enjoy.
