“It is with great sadness, the Siloam Springs Chamber of Commerce is announcing the cancellation of the 2020 Dogwood Festival due to potential health concerns around the COVID-19 pandemic effecting Northwest Arkansas and the rest of the world. The Siloam Springs Chamber of Commerce, working with the Dogwood Committee, rescheduled the Dogwood Festival twice this year hoping for a decline in the COVID-19 cases in Northwest Arkansas, which did not occur. The Dogwood Festival, as we have been accustomed, could not occur safely without significant changes given from the Governor of Arkansas’ directives and the Arkansas Department of Health. As a result, the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors and the Dogwood Committee agreed that a safe festival would not be possible and made the very difficult decision to cancel for 2020. We would like to thank the Dogwood Committee, the Chamber of Commerce Ambassadors, the Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors, the City of Siloam, vendors, and sponsors, for their endless efforts and many hours trying to make the Dogwood Festival happen this year. We will start the process of working toward a great Dogwood Festival in April 2021 and we expect it to be the best Dogwood Festival ever.” -Arthur Hulbert President & CEO- Siloam Springs Chamber of Commerce
Held the last full weekend in April, the Dogwood Festival draws an estimated 35,000 people to Downtown Siloam Springs.
This award-winning festival features exhibitors from all over the United States. Many have said we are the most vendor-friendly festival around. We try hard to create a small-town, family-like atmosphere for those visiting over the long weekend.
Our more than 200 booths provide a wide variety of finds including arts and crafts, handmade items, gifts and vintage. We also provide a line-up of live music and entertainment to enjoy.
Food vendors provide a variety of foodie favorites including fried green tomatoes, gumbo, bread pudding, smoked chicken dinners, tacos, turkey legs, catfish, alligator-on-a-stick, corn dogs, caramel apples, funnel cakes, kettle corn, homemade root beer and fresh-squeezed lemonade. Come hungry and we promise you won't leave that way!
The KidZone provides rides and activities for the young and young at heart including a bungee jumper, inflatable obstacle course, rock-climbing wall, mechanical bull, train ride, helicopter rides and much more!
This well-known festival is organized by the Siloam Springs Chamber of Commerce’s Volunteer Dogwood Festival Committee.
Each year, community volunteers have donated hours of their time, helping to make the festival a success.
We are very grateful and couldn't do it all without their help!
