Hope Watermelon Festival

Hope, AR 71801

The Hope Watermelon festival features numerous activities including arts and crafts, food, entertainment and other family-oriented activities. Local civic clubs hold dinners featuring such down-home fare as locally grown smoked chicken and golden fried catfish. What else can you do at the festival? You can participate in a 5 k race, take in a dog show, enter the "Watermelon Idol" talent contest.  The local businesses enjoyed the Watermelon Olympics Competition last year, so they are gearing up for another exciting competition
