Don’t Miss Arkansas’ Most Southern And Delicious Festival
Some of Arkansas’ food staples can be rather odd to an outsider but there’s one delicious tradition that everyone can get behind – cornbread. Whether you prefer spicy or sweet, this side dish can make an appearance at the supper table every night of the week. Once a year, Arkansans come together to celebrate this beloved dish at the Cornbread Festival. Let’s season our cast iron skillets and prepare for this delicious fest.

We recently discussed the Arkansas Bean Festival happening on Oct. 26-27th. Since there’s really no better pairing than pinto beans and cornbread, the two festivals would make the perfect weekend trip. If you’d like directions between these two festivals, use this map.
