  • SOUTHERN GOURMASIAN: One of our favorites; it'll be at the Main Street Food Truck Festival.

Food festivals are out in force on Saturday, Oct. 4, from downtown to midtown:

Nearly 30 food trucks will gather on Main Street between Fourth and Eighth streets from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. for the Main Street Food Truck Festival (with a handful of trucks serving breakfast from 8 a.m. until 10 a.m.). See a full list below.

HarvestFest in Hillcrest, on Kavanaugh between Walnut and North Monroe streets, kicks off with a pancake breakfast at Pulaski Heights Presbyterian Church from 9 a.m. until 11 a.m. A cheese dip competition runs from noon until 2 p.m. Later, there's a really popular fashion show and a slew of great local bands playing, with Amasa Hines headlining. 

The chili cook-off Chili Fights in the Heights returns to Kavanaugh Boulevard, between North Taylor and North Polk streets. From 2 p.m. until 7 p.m., a free trolley will transport people between HarvestFest and Chili Fights in the Heights. Teams begin cooking at 1 p.m., The Good Time Ramblers will begin performing at 2 p.m. Beer and wine sales will start then, too. Chili tasting begins at 4 p.m. A tasting kit will cost you $5*. Proceeds benefit the Arkansas Foodbank.

St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 1000 N. Mississippi Ave., hosts its 10th annual Shrimp Boil Benefit from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. A drive-through will be open from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. Tickets are $35; groups of eight or more get in for $25 per person, and kids’ tickets run $15.
