If we decide to have Owlfest this year, there will be certain guidelines from CDC and the State of AR that we would have to adhere to: Hand washing stations, Hand sanitizing stations, regular scheduled disinfecting of high touch areas, point of entry sign in sheets along with temperature checks. All this would require extra money and additional volunteers. We, as a committee, have to consider all of this.

We are having to make some very difficult decisions to determine if it is in everyone’s best interest to have Owlfest this year. It is imperative that we get as much feedback as possible.  If you have any questions or suggestions that might help us make a decision, please let me know.

Schedule of Events will be posted at a later date. Entry forms are being posted as they are available. For updates on Owlfest, like us on Facebook or visit the Owlfest website. Contact us at owlfest@mcgeheechamber.com for any other questions.

Owlfest is McGehee’s city-wide festival held downtown. Festival includes free entertainment the whole weekend. Other family friendly events include a 5K Run/Walk, carnival with children’s area and blow up bounce house and slide, petting zoo, two street dances, live music, Owl Hoot contest. Additional events include a talent show, horseshoe tournament, motorcycle show, golf tournament and last but not least food and arts craft vendors.

Friday the town will support McGehee Owls in their annual homecoming game at Owl Stadium. Many classes plan their reunions at this time. If your class is planning a reunion, we encourage you to register your event with the Owlfest committee so we can assist you. The night continues with a downtown street dance following the game is the place to be with a DJ filling the air with modern, fun music. The night concludes with a spectacular firework show.

Saturday join the Razorback Tailgate party downtown to cheer the Hogs to victory.
