Festival fun will return to the streets of downtown Booneville this Saturday as the Booneville Main Street Association hosts the Hospitality Arts Festival.

This weekend’s event, filled with artists, vendors, food, music, and more will mark the first festival held downtown since the 2019 Fall Festival and Main Street Executive Director/City Tourism and Development Director Lori Tucker is excited to welcome the community back to celebrate the area’s artistic talent.

“It’s definitely time. We’re looking forward to a great day,” she said.

The fun begins at 10 a.m. Saturday and continues until 2 p.m.

Hannah and Karly will open the day with live music at 10 and will return to the stage at 1 p.m. The Showstars performing group will perform at noon.

Registration begins at 11 a.m. for the fried pie competition and judging for it begins at noon.
