Festival season is now upon us, and that means that towns across Arkansas will soon be showing off what makes them special. The Cabot Strawberry Festival is one of the earliest festivals in the year, and it’s one that shouldn’t be missed!
The Strawberry Festival, organized by the Junior Auxiliary of Cabot, is a fundraising project that also promotes the region’s strawberry growers and industry.
During the festival, attendees can enjoy a wide range of attractions, from food trucks, a carnival, live music and more. Of course, the real star of the festival is the strawberries!
One of the highlights of the festival is the Strawberry Social on Friday. Head to the town square to sample some delicious strawberry goodies. There might be a little competition between the vendors, but it’s all in good fun! This family-friendly event takes place from 6:30-8 p.m.
There will be plenty of fun events for the kiddos, as well. From face painting to an inflatable obstacle course, there are tons of fun activities in the Kidz Zone. Your kids can enjoy plinko, football toss, a coloring contest and an archery game. The Kidz Zone, which is free to enter, is designed for children ages 10 and under. There will also be a toddler play area.
Live music will be playing both days. With a full slate of performer, there’s going to be something to entertain all members of the family. On Friday night, Rodge Arnold and Mayday by Midnight will be performing. Saturday will feature 13 performances, starting at 9:30 a.m., including a magic act.
