Yell Fest in Dardanelle Postponed Until June

Jill M. Rohrbach

Yell Fest in Dardanelle has been postponed from this weekend (May 6-7) to June 17-18 due to the high water at Riverfront Park. While it’s a disappointment for this weekend, there’s still plenty to look forward to when the festival takes place in June.

In its 22nd year, festivities include a carnival, 5K, crafts, food, entertainment, and kids games. The highlight is, of course, the yelling contest. Admission to the festival is free, but there is a parking fee. Find more information at or by calling 479-229-3328.
