New Events Added to World Champion Cheese Dip Festival

Kerry Kraus

Those cheese dip festival people are at it again. Always looking for ways to increase the public’s enjoyment at their event, they’ve added some new attractions: a cheese dip eating contest and a boat and RV super sale. All of this and more takes place on September 24.

In announcing the additions, the Southern Cheese Dip Academy said “Our friends at are sponsoring the inaugural World Cheese Dip Championship Chow Down, a cheese dip eating contest that will take place at halftime of the Arkansas/Alabama football game. The game will be shown on the large screen at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock.

The stadium will also be the site of the 3rd Annual Arkansas Boat & RV Super Sale, where guests can browse new and used boats, RVs, motorcycles, and ATVs in the parking lot outside at no cost. The Super Sale show hours will be Friday, September 23, from noon until 7 p.m., Saturday, September 24, from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. and Sunday, September 25, from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m.

September is Hunger Action Month so attendees are asked to bring canned food donations which will be given to the Arkansas Food Bank.

Tickets for the World Cheese Dip Championship are now on sale at all Pulaski and Saline County USA Drug stores. The cost of admission is $10 for adults; children ages 10 and under attend for free. Tickets will also be available at War Memorial Stadium on the day of the event. Proceeds benefit the Harmony Health Clinic. The official website has a full schedule of events.
