This Just Might Be The Most Unique Festival In All Of Arkansas

From peaches to purple hull peas, Arkansas has plenty of food-themed festivals. However, the Bean Festival is one of the most unique for a very unexpected reason. Mountain View’s annual festival is also the grounds for the Great Arkansas Championship Outhouse Races. You’d be hard-pressed to find anything more ridiculously southern (or fun) than watching these outrageous races.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures! And on that note, please nominate your favorite local business that could use some love right now:

You can also follow the festival on their Facebook Event Page.
