Competing cooks will be rolling up their sleeves and oiling up their skillets for the Arkansas Cornbread Festival coming Nov. 3 to SoMa, on Main between 13th and 16th streets. Festival-goers will be able to munch cornbread samples from professional competitors Big Daddy’s Hotwater Cornbread from the Old South Cornbread Co., Whole Foods, the Governor’s Mansion, and Redbone’s (all in the traditional category); the Savory Pantry, Loblolly Creamery, Pizza D’Action, and Dogtown Coffee and Cookery (all non-traditional); and Boulevard Bread, Brown Sugar Bake Shop and Dempsey Bakery (sweet cornbread), as well as amateur competitors. Food trucks will serve up main courses and more, craft vendors will line Main and there will be music to eat by from (in order of appearance) the Mockingbird Hillbilly Band, Rodney Block and the Real Music Lovers, the Buffalo City Ramblers, Tsar Bomba, Don’t Stop Please and Tyrannosaurus Chicken. Tickets are $7 adults and $3 for children. It’s the 2nd annual festival and a lot of the action will be at the Bernice Sculpture Garden, Daisy Bates and Main.
