Mayhaw Festival this Saturday

Zoie Clift


This Saturday (May 1) an all
day celebration of music, food, and southern culture is on the agenda for the
Mayhaw festival in El Dorado.
Mayhaw is the name given to the fruit (which
ripens in late April through May) of hawthorn trees. It is considered a
celebrated delicacy of Southern cuisine.


At the festival there will be
bluegrass music, a tour of the Newton House Museum, a chance to milk cows and
make butter, living history tour guides, and of course Mayhaw jelly and plants for sale.
