The past becomes the present at Davidsonville Historic State Park as it celebrates 200 years of Arkansas Territory. Explore the town as it would have been during a heyday market week and explore the pattern of peoples and trades that made Arkansas what it is today. Try candle making, tomahawk throwing, carpentry, brick making, quill writing, historic games and more. Visit the historic tavern for a drink and play a hand of cards while talking with the innkeeper. A variety of townsfolk will be present to talk about experiences, ranging from the doctor and his medical ideas, to the struggles of slaves that called this area home. The festival is free to the public with food and merchandise available for purchase during the event. For more information, contact the park at 870-892-4708 or at davidsonville@arkansas.gov.
