Funtober Fall Festivals

Fall Arkansas Festivals

On this list of fall festivals in Arkansas is one event that surprised me.  Did you know that rice is grown in Arkansas?  I certainly didn’t.  It’s the state that produces the most rice in the nation: over 200 million bushels.  That’s almost half of the nation’s production.  Anyway, that’s enough education about America’s rice production.  Enjoy the list of festivals, as well as this list of places to celebrate Oktoberfest in Arkansas.

We hope you enjoyed last year’s list.  We will be updating this information for 2016 over the next few weeks.  Stay tuned!
