It ain't a festival without funnel cake!

Update 5/9: The Conway Jouranl along with Chuck Silvey have a great little slide show of the Rivertown Music and Arts festival. Go check it out. 


First report: May 7th will mark the 25th Rivertown Music & Arts Festival in historic downtown Conway. This years festival comes some new beer rules, but it's good news for once!

For 25 years this annual festival has celebrated great music, spectacular local art and food from Conway restaurants and vendors. This years event kicks off at 10 a.m. and will last until 9 p.m. Bands playing this years festival will be Sea Cruz, Southern Blue and Sol Driven Train. Also, local artists will be set up along the street showcasing all of their wares. 

The new added bonus this year is, for the first time in the festivals long history, Conway City Council has given the go ahead for "to-go" beer and wine to be sold by local businesses. Alcohol is nothing new at the fest, but the difference this year is they are allowing business owners & not just vendors to sell the tasty adult beverages.
