This May Be The Most Ridiculously Fun Festival In All Of Arkansas
Arkansas has some rather odd fairs and festivals covering everything from purple hull peas to how many ways you can cook a squirrel. One of the most ridiculously fun fests in the state is the Arkansas Goat Festival. On October 6th, 2018, folks will gather in Perryville celebrate everything goat from byproducts to costume contests. Let’s “goat” together and see what we can expect at this silly festival.
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: https://www.onlyinyourstate.com/nominate/
For more details about the fest, including a list of goat-friendly lodgings, visit the Arkansas Goat Festival website or Facebook Page.
