The second annual Arkansas Cornbread Festival seeks southern cooks, amateur and professional alike, to show off their bread. Competition categories include traditional, non-traditional and sweet cornbreads, and first prize is $500 cash. The festival will be held at Bernice Gardens on November 3, entry fees are $25 and $75 (amateur and pro), and festival-goers will help celebrity judges choose the winners. There's also going to be a Best Side Item category, so any competitor is welcome to provide the side item of their choice.

The Cornbread Fest will take place from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will include craft, furniture and food vendors and an Oxford American music stage. Tickets are $7 in advance and $10 the day-of. Check the festival website for competition entry forms and vendor booth applications. For questions or more information, contact Liz Sanders, coordinator of the Bernice Garden and the Arkansas Cornbread Festival, at bernicegarden@gmail.com or call 501-617-2511.

Times ("Bentonville Film Festival pushes diversity message from year one") and the New York Times ("Bentonville, Ark., Hosts a Film Festival Without a Movie Theater"), most of them centering on its unique and vital agenda — promoting diversity and gender equality in filmmaking — and its celebrity cache (e.g. an acting workshop taught by Robert De Niro, a softball game led by Rosie O'Donnell, etc.).
