Cornbread may be the focus and the main draw for the thousands in attendance, but Arkansas Cornbread Festival-goers also love their shopping! This year we're trying something new - free entry for all Festival attendees. Tasting tickets will be purchased just for the cornbread competition, to taste the cornbread and vote on favorites. With this update, we expect even more foot traffic for our vendors! Apply to be a vendor today:
If you register by August 26th, we're offering a discounted fee to thank you for your early sign up! Regular registration ends September 23.
Everyone is welcome to apply. To align with our mission, vendors focused on Arkansas-made products and local non-profits will have preference.
*The following foods may be sold through our regular vendors as long as the Arkansas Department of Health Cottage Food Guidelines are met.
- Maple syrup, sorghum, or honey.
- Bakery products, candy, fruit butter, jams, and jellies that do not require refrigeration. NOTE: Jams, jellies and fruit butter made with Splenda and/or similar sugar substitutes are considered potentially hazardous food. In this case, vendors are responsible for having the appropriate permit from the Arkansas Department of Health to sell.
