There's something going on almost every weekend in Little Rock, Arkansas. Check out these events and festivals for holidays and every days. I've highlight some holidays and special events, but clicking on the month will take you to a full listing for that month. Please note that the full monthly listings are normally not updated until a month or so before the month (ie: March would be updated in February) to keep them as accurate and complete as possible. Special holiday and festival pages are often updated further in advances, and often holiday events stay the same from year to year.
3. March Events
4. April Events
5. May Events
May brings Toad Suck Daze, the Greek Food Fest and Riverfest. Throughout the spring and summer Cajun's has their deck parties every Thursday night and the Peabody Hotel has their Rivertop Parties every Friday night. I call May the start of the summer festival season. It's also Mother's Day and Memorial Day.
6. June Events
June brings the Little Rock Film Festival and Taste of the Rock. Movies in the Park starts every Wednesday in the River Market amphitheater and River Flicks is every Thursday in North Little Rock throughout the summer. The summer festival season is in full swing with Portfest, the Pink Tomato Festival and Hope's Watermelon Festival. June is also Father's Day.
7. July Events
It's Independance Day, but it's also Grapefest in Altus and Ding Dong Days in Dumas. July is when Arkansas starts to heat up, with tempertures sometimes in the 100s. The festival season is slowing down because people don't want to leave their houses. The third Sunday of the month is National Ice Cream Day.
August is Bill Clinton's birthday, so you get free admission to the Clinton library.
