Festival-goers will see a change in children’s activities this year as the committee opted to scale back this section of the event due to the increase of Covid-19 transmission rates during the early planning stages.  Kids can still look forward to smaller activities free of charge hosted by local civic groups, but the large attractions such as rides and bounce houses will not be included in the kids’ section this year. However, thanks to generous sponsors, laser tag will now be free to all who attend.

Confirmed vendors for the pop-up market include Ron’s Airbrush, Brooklyn’s Beverage Express, Rock ‘n Toys, Kut It Out Keepsakes By Trina, The Handcrafted Peddler, Tupperware, Onpoint Bling, 4K Nutrition, and Sacred Heart CYM.  Those attending and providing a free children’s activity or service for parents include The CALL of Conway/Faulkner County, Conway County DHS, Children’s Advocacy Alliance, TMH Spirit Center LLC, WoodmenLife Arkansas Chapter 1422, Petit Jean Garden Club, Tree City Morrilton, and Conway County Extension Homemakers.  Kaila Parker with Love Every Body Nutrition Counseling will host a complimentary parenting station for nursing, feeding, and changing little ones.

Point Remove Brewing Company and the Southern Sippery Mobile Bar have partnered to host this year’s beer and wine garden.  Festival-goers over age 21 can enjoy a selection of beer and wine throughout the event.  A portion of the proceeds benefit Main Street Morrilton.

The Big Cuppa crew is hosting a Baggo tournament. The grand prize of a custom Baggo board is sponsored by My Plan Store with other prizes courtesy of Big Cuppa.  Sign-ups are live now at

The planning committee continues to solicit volunteers for the event. Anyone interested can sign up on the Main Street website.

To help minimize transmission of COVID-19, guests are encouraged to bring their own chair, sanitize often, and distance themselves from others where possible. The planning committee is working to provide multiple sanitizing stations throughout the event and will have volunteers dedicated to cleaning tables and chairs.
