We would like to invite you to participate in the 18th Annual Buffalo River Elk Festival.  This is a great festival that has the atmosphere of a spectacular block party as downtown Jasper is transformed into a lively festival grounds. People from all over Arkansas, the surrounding states and the community come out in full force to celebrate and enjoy the many festival activities and enjoy strolling thru the downtown area and visit the many unique shops and restaurants. The secret is spreading about Jasper’s unique blend of Ozark artisanship, small town charm and a certain quirky nature that can’t help but bring a smile. Come share in this unique experience which includes everything from an elk calling contest to dancing under the stars late into the night.
