Little Rock is Arkansas’s epicenter for fun. With year-round events and awesome festivals, there is always something new to experience. From music to marathons and food to fairs.
Hosted by the Downtown Little Rock Partnership, Barkus on Main is a Mardi Gras-themed parade of pooches. It's way more than a typical dog walk, each year features a beer garden, crawfish boil, beads, beads and more beads, and an after-party of course. Prizes are awarded for Best Pet/Owner Look-a-Like costumes, Most Original, Best Large Breed, Best Float and Judge's Choice. Get more details on the DLRP's website.
Mosaic Templars Cultural Center has been a leader in Arkansas Juneteenth festivities since 2009. Now, with Juneteenth recognized as a federal holiday, MTCC continues to serve as the home of central Arkansas’ largest Juneteenth event. Juneteenth is a chance for the city to engage in cultural and educational opportunities that will help future generations understand the importance of this date to the African American community.
