If you're curious what Harvest Fst offers aside from the stellar lineup (more on this next post), there are all sorts of other things to do:
The Roost is a great hangout spot away from the main stage filled with a variety of arts and entertainment! Workshops for all ages will be held; everything from yoga and meditation to hoop classes and kids' activities. 19 bands will perform on The Roost stage over the weekend along with fire performers, hoopers, a magician clown act, and burlesque styled performers. The Roost will also be the home of the First Annual Fiddlin' and Pickin' Contest.
A special children's area will be led by Quixotic Fusion School of Performing Arts (facebook.com/quixoticfusionschool), a sister company of Quixotic Fusion (quixoticfusion.com); who wowed fans at Wakarusa on their very own performance stage. Children are highly encouraged to attend Harvest Music Festival! Bring your kids along and let them explore their creative sides. Quixotic Fusion School of Performing Arts will offer lessons in painting, tumbling, dance, and will be face painting during the festival. Supplies and mats will be provided.
Rock The Earth
Rock The Earth joins Harvest Music Festival along with river-rafting experts Turner Bend and the Shimon Presents Work Exchange Team to lead a "River & Road Cleanup" on Wednesday, Oct. 12 (10 a.m. - 2 p.m.) in the vicinity of Mulberry Mountain. The Mulberry River is an extremely popular destination for canoeing, kayaking and rafting, and has become a staple in the local culture of Arkansas and the country. All participants in the clean-up activities will receive free early admission to the festival, snacks & beverages, and a free event shirt. To sign up or for more information, inquiries can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
9 holes of disc golf awaits you at the Harvest Festival! We've designed a challenging and scenic course for a quick round in between sets!
Take an amazing adventure through the Ozark National Forest with hundreds of miles of hiking trails to explore. The Ozark Highlands Trail, rated one of the most scenic hiking trails in the country, is easily accessed from Mulberry Mountain. Enjoy an afternoon trip to the waterfalls on mountain creek or take a hike along the Mulberry River for great views of the Ozark Mountains. No matter where you tread you are sure to see some of the most amazing sites the forest has to offer.
You’ll find some great fishing opportunities at Mulberry Mountain. Fish one of our four stocked mini-lakes or enjoy private access to ½ mile of the Mulberry River. Note: An Arkansas fishing license is required to fish on these lakes. In late spring and early summer, the river is an excellent choice when angling for smallmouth, largemouth, and spotted bass or green and longear sunfish. The potholes can be fished during drier months, but getting to them may require hiking along a slippery streambed. The mini-lakes at Mulberry Mountain are kept stocked with a variety of fish
Float Trips and Kayaking
Turner Bend Outfitter and general store is located just four miles south of Mulberry Mountain. They offer canoe, kayak, and raft rentals on the Mulberry River. Turner Bend has been outfitting the Mulberry River for 28 years. The Mulberry River can be an easy Class I river or can be challenging whitewater depending on recent rainfall. Check them out at www.turnerbend.com or call them at 479-667-3641. Reservations are recommended.
