The Arkadelphia Area Chamber of Commerce is looking for sponsors and food vendors for its 7th annual Downtown Crawfest presented by Southern Bancorp.
This family-friendly event is free and open to the public. The crawfish boil starts Friday, May 4 beginning at 5:30 p.m. Crawfish and the fixings will be served in the parking lot at 617 Clinton Street in downtown Arkadelphia. Advance boil tickets are $25 and will be available Friday, April 6 at Southern Bancorp, Donna Worrell at Winners Circle, and the Arkadelphia Area Chamber of Commerce office. The evening will feature a crawfish eating contest, live entertainment from Zac Dunlap Band, sponsored by Southwest Auto Collection, Southwest Sporting Goods Crawfest Baggo Tournament, Gossip Shop Salon & Boutique Kids Play Zone, and much more. On Saturday, May 5 the Crawfish Crawl 5k and 10k and Southern Bancorp Andy Allison Super Kids Run will be held.
Due to previous events with vendors being overlooked and making limited money, the event committee agreed to have no vendors other than food this year at Downtown Arkadelphia Crawfest.
Sponsor support is necessary to ensure the success of this valuable event, which provides local entertainment and showcase our downtown area. A variety of sponsorships are available for the festival, including the Grand Crawdaddy at $500; Crawdaddy at $250; and Corn and Potatoes at $150. Corn and Potatoes T-shirt sponsorship deadline is Monday, April 9 at 12PM. The deadline for other sponsorships is Friday, April 20.
Please call the Chamber at (870) 246-5542 or email shelley@arkadelphiaalliance.com for details about each sponsorship opportunity or more information about this event.
