2nd Annual Boggy Creek Festival

Posted by: Lyle Blackburn on October 22nd, 2014

The 2nd Annual Boggy Creek Festival is coming up this weekend Oct 24-25, 2014 in Fouke, Arkansas.  Fouke is, of course, home of the infamous Legend of Boggy Creek. The purpose of the event is to bring together the local community and to share information about the sasquatch-like creature that has been sighted in the area for over a century. The festival features local arts and crafts, music, entertainment, food vendors, and presentations by local bigfoot researchers.

Camping at the Miller County Fairgrounds will be open starting Friday Oct 24, while the main event will happen Sat Oct 25 along Fouke’s main strip just off Highway 71 and Main Street. (Just come to Fouke and you can’t miss it!)

This is first come first serve since seating is limited, so buy your ticket at the festival early!
