501 Day Holiday to Celebrate Central Arkansas


LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (March 9, 2022) – Back for its second year, 501 Day celebrates central Arkansas and all it has to offer.  


Most people know 501 as the area code for central Arkansas. Over the years, 501 has come to represent much more than just part of a phone number; 501 has become a symbol of a beautiful, bustling region in the heart of Arkansas.


The Downtown Little Rock Partnership, together with other cities, chambers of commerce, and community organizations throughout central Arkansas, created 501 Day in 2021 to celebrate the region they are proud to call home. “We are excited to bring 501 Day back for its second year,” says Gabe Holmstrom, Executive Director of Downtown Little Rock Partnership. “The holiday builds pride in our region and encourages community across central Arkansas.”


Each community in the area code is encouraged to engage their residents, organizations, and businesses with creative ways to celebrate. Participants might show their 501 pride with special 501-themed offers, activities, merchandize, public art displays, and whatever else they dream up.


With the hashtag #Celebrate501, @Celebrate501 on Instagram and Facebook, and Celebrate501.com, 501 Day and the Celebrate 501 movement now have a public platform for people to share what they love about central Arkansas year-round, culminating with an annual event the weekend of May 1.
