Statehood Celebration

June 3, 2017 1 PM to June 3, 2017 6PM

Old State House Museum

Additional Event Details

Celebrate the 181st anniversary of Arkansas becoming a state at the Old State House Museum as we recreate life in 1836 with this live-action role-playing program! This year's theme is Work And Play, and was voted on by last year’s event visitors. This year’s attendees will leave with a greater understanding of trades and industries, wages, and forms of entertainment that were available in Arkansas in 1836.

Visitors are encouraged to enter a profession and find ways to both “make” and “spend” money in an 1836 economy. Living history characters and programs are tailored to both “help and hinder” each guest’s pursuit of earnings and entertainment. Characters at this year’s Statehood program will include lawyers, tavern keepers, gamblers, performers, speculators, and skilled craftsmen. Popular activities like gambling, shopping, military drill, skilled and unskilled labor, period games, and sports will be ongoing during the event. Special events include a horse race and a puppet show.

Admission is free. Call 501.324.9685 for more information.
