Springfest 2019

Springfest 2019


A Weekend  of Family Fun During Springfest 

Swing into spring at the 32nd annual Springfest on May 17 & 18. This free festival is packed top to bottom with great family fun, starting at noon on Friday and continuing all day Saturday. Festival home base is Spring Park, with expanded attractions and activities on the Courthouse Square downtown, and additional events throughout Heber Springs.
At the festival, you’ll find an extensive arts and crafts show, featuring handmade items like jewelry, soap, leatherwork, furniture and toys. You’ll also enjoy classic festival-food favorites, from corndogs and onion blossoms to shaved ice and kettle corn. Live music and other entertainment from local and regional names keeps things hopping at the Spring Park Band Shell and the Courthouse Square stage. On the Square, crafters will also demonstrate the art and skill behind the creation of their wares. 
Nature-loving kiddos will have plenty to explore at Springfest, including pony rides, a petting zoo and the immersive butterfly experience at the Butterfly Pavilion, sponsored by First Electric Cooperative. Tickets to the Pavilion are $3, which includes a butterfly glider. 
Friday afternoon, a “Tribute to Our Heroes” will honor the lives of those lost in service to our county, honoring fallen officers, fire fighters and EMS workers. This ceremony will begin at 
5:30 pm with a presentation of the colors and the reading of the names of those lost in service through the years. 
The Mountain Top Volkswagen Club will sponsor the 13th Annual Volkswagen Car Show in Spring Park, where Volkswagen enthusiasts can discover collectible cars from around the state or display their own restorations. 

A Dog Contest benefiting the Heber Springs Humane Society at the Band Shell on Saturday afternoon and the Springfest Pageant in the Spring Park Amphitheater on Saturday night will help close out the festival. More events and festival attractions are being added daily!

2019 Fireworks Extravaganza

2019 Fireworks Extravaganza

The 2019 Fireworks Extravaganza will be held at Sandy Beach on the shores of Greers Ferry Lake. Gates open at 10 am for a fun filled day on the beach before the festivities begin. Partygoers will arrive by boat and by car to enjoy food vendors, and live music beginning at 7:30 p.m.


At 9:30 p.m., one of the largest fireworks displays in Arkansas will light the skies above the lake, as thousands of breathtaking fireworks are choreographed to music broadcast on Timeless 106.1 FM KFFB. Beautifully mirrored in the lake’s surface, the show is equally magical whether viewed by boat or on the shore, and each year’s Fireworks Spectacular is better than the last. 


The Fireworks Extravaganza is free, although there is $10 parking fee for those traveling by car.




Thank you to the 2018 Fireworks Extravaganza Sponsors

33rd Annual World Championship Cardboard Boat Races

33rd Annual World Championship Cardboard Boat Races

2019 World Championship Cardboard Boat Races 



The theme for the 2019 World Championship Cardboard Boat Races is Planes, Trains and
Automobiles. Race participants will stretch the limits of their ingenuity to design boats that represent

their favorite mode of transportation that is not a boat. Whether the choice is Thomas

the Train, a Fighter Pilot, a Model A Ford, a Conductor or the Spirit of St. Louis, these

cardboard crafts and costumes are sure to be amazing.

The Races will begin at 10 am on Saturday July 20th at Sandy Beach on Greers Ferry

Lake in Heber Springs, AR.

Boat races will begin at 10:00 a.m., with timed heats for both children and adults. The

Pride of the Fleet Prize will be awarded to the boat that best combines innovative

engineering with artistic design, while the Captain’s Award goes to the team with the

greatest spirit and crowd involvement. And of course, the Titanic Award is reserved for

the boat with the most dramatic sinking.

There’s plenty of additional fun planned for the day, with a treasure dig, watermelon eating

contest, and some new and exciting things all on the agenda. Enjoy the

spectacular surroundings of Heber Springs, a jewel of a town located just 60 miles

north of Little Rock, on the shores of Greers Ferry Lake and the Little Red River in the

foothills of the Ozark Mountains.

More information, including registration applications and additional activities for 2019

will be available soon on our Facebook Page.
