Arkansas State Fair
State Fairs, Motorcycle Rallies & More
The great state of Arkansas may not jump out as a destination region at first glance. However, you’d be remiss not to explore some of the charm and beauty hidden throughout the Natural State.
Food, music, entertainment, and even flowers are frequently put on display for all to enjoy.
For instance, Little Rock, Arkansas’ capital city hosts the annual, fan-favorite Arkansas State Fair. Both visitors and residents frequently flock to the Arkansas State Fair Grounds Complex for a taste of the festivities.
Carnival rides, delicious fair food, and live entertainment – all the classic fair activities you’ve grown to enjoy can be found at the Arkansas State Fair.
To the north, the culture-ridden college town of Fayetteville – home of the University of Arkansas – features a host of welcoming festivities all its own. The Craft Guilds, Bikes, Blues, and BBQ motorcycle rally, and Lights of the Ozarks highlight a star-studded list of annual community get-togethers.
The southern cities are not to be missed, either. Pine Bluff celebrates the holidays with the month-long LANTERN! Festival, while Hot Springs brings out the movie buffs during their annual Documentary Film Festival, and then tries to get lucky during the St. Patrick’s Day Parade in March.
While it may indeed be a land of Hogs, Caged Birds, and Clintons, Arkansas certainly knows how to get down. Here’s everything you need to know about annual festivals in Arkansas.
