Nestled near the calm waters of the Ouachita River in the Timberlands region of South Arkansas, El Dorado is undergoing a unique renaissance. Voted as having "America's Best Downtown" in 2009, El Dorado has evolved from a humble oil town into an area rich in southern charm, history and some of the best Arkansas Festivals.
Whether it is enjoying the South Arkansas Symphony, trying new vintages at the Southern Food & Wine Festival or watching a reenactment of a historical gun fight on the Union County Courthouse steps, there is always something to do or see here.
From the award-winning MusicFest in the fall to the Mayhaw Festival in the spring, El Dorado is fast becoming known as a premiere entertainment destination. With the creation of El Dorado Festivals & Events, Inc., that reputation is only going to grow bigger, better and stronger. See a list of upcoming Arkansas Festivals.
