What to know
BEANS AND CORNBREAD Thousands will flock to the festival to enjoy the 2,000 lbs. of pinto beans stewing in giant cast iron cauldrons. The fest also features the Bean Fest Artisans Market on the Square that's filled with handmade crafts from around the state. GREAT ARKANSAS CHAMPIONSHIP OUTHOUSE RACES The ridiculous race showcases cleverly themed privies steered by drivers sitting on toilet seats. The "people powered potty" teams are racing for high stakes - the gold toilet seat award (and cash prize). MUSIC Music will be on the Courthouse Stage all weekend long. Don't forget to stop in the Pickin' Park to see both locals and pickers from out of town having mini jam sessions under the gazebos.
