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. While we continue to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, please take proper precautions or add them to your bucket list to see at a later date. If you know of a local business that could use some extra support during these times, please nominate them here:

For more details about the fest, including a list of goat-friendly lodgings, visit the Arkansas Goat Festival website or Facebook Page.

Have you been to the goat fest before? We’d love to hear about your experience in the comments below!

Be sure to take this scenic drive or visit the charming mills this fall.
