Vision Statement

Our organization uses events and outreach to honor the cultural pathways of Arkansas’s unique past, in a way that empowers and enriches our future.

As a partner of the Children’s Advocacy Alliance, we help support the vital outreach of dedicated volunteers who stand up for abused and neglected children in central Arkansas. We also support regional CASA programs through outreach events across the state.

As a partner of the Arkansas Distillers Guild, we promote the craft distillers who carry on the legacy of spirit manufacturing and who consistently distinguish our region through excellence and innovation.

Our annual festival is a premier event uniting both of these goals, bringing the community together as we welcome new visitors in a celebration of the folk artists, musicians, makers, and merchants that continue to shape our identity.
