Applications received by March 13th will be given priority for both participation and inclusion in the 2021 Arkansas Made magazine, due out in April.

We are planning to hold this event under the current Arkansas Department of Health Covid-19 guidelines and restrictions. We will only cancel if more restrictive measures are put in place due to an increased safety risk. Our large size makes War Memorial Stadium uniquely suited to social distancing, and we have been safely and successfully hosting events with sizable crowds. While we want you to be a part of this year’s event, we understand if you need to sit this one out. Event details are included in the below “Fact Sheet.”

We hope you will join us for this premiere, locally made market! Event details are below. If you have questions or would like additional information, please reach out to me, Ian Beard, at (501) 537-5207 or ian.beard@arkansas.gov.
