DOGWOOD FESTIVAL

 

A word from our President & CEO, Arthur Hulbert about changes to the 2020 Dogwood Festival here: “In response to the coronavirus threat that is having an unprecedented global impact and in response to recommendations from the CDC and other government entities, the Siloam Springs Chamber of Commerce has decided to reschedule the annual Dogwood festival that had been previously scheduled for April 24, 25, and 26th.  The Dogwood Festival has received final approval to be rescheduled for  May 29, 30, 31. The Chamber of Commerce is thankful for the responsiveness of  city staff  for helping to authorize new dates for the festival so quickly.  With the continued uncertainty around the additional future impact of the coronavirus, the new Dogwood Festival date in May is subject to any potential future requirements from the CDC and other governmental entities. While we anticipate one of the best Dogwood Festivals ever with lots of fun and great food, we are committed to the safety of all.  Thank you all very much.

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!
