Today Greg and I had a blast attending the 2018 Arkansas Cornbread Festival benefiting the wonderful local district - SOMA. South On Main is a wonderful area filled with great local shops, art, music and some great food! The weather was perfect for this year's Festival!
We visited all the local booths to sample some of the best cornbread around! From Sweet Yellow Cornbread, Jalapeno Cornbread, Spicy, Buttermilk and believe it or not...Crawl Fish Cornbread was on hand to try and win the prize.
The Root Cafe had the best cornbread to offer for both Greg and I. In fact, they took first place for the Professional Cornbread and side item. I hope that it is offered at the cafe on a daily basis.
The Festival had some wonderful vendors that showcased their artwork, jewelry, crafts and treats to purchase. There were also many food trucks throughout Main Street offering some great food choices. Of course, you have to grab a wonderful cone from Loblolly Creamery. I decided to try the pumpkin cheesecake with dark chocolate sorbet as the top dip. It was amazing!
As we ventured down the street sampling all the variety of cornbread and fixins' we stumbled upon the Walgreen's Booth located right outside their corner store. I hadn't had the chance to get my flu shot yet, so we went inside and within 10 minutes I received my flu vaccine.
This Festival was well organized and is a great local community event! If you didn't make it this year, be on the lookout for next year's event.
