Third annual Ark. Cornbread Festival in SOMA on Nov. 2

I like a good skillet of cornbread or — even better — Mexican cornbread as well as the next guy. That said, it's hard to believe you can build a whole, well-attended festival around a side dish. Props to Knoxville, Tenn., for leading the way. 

With that in mind, I alert you that it's almost time once again for the annual Arkansas Cornbread Festival, the third installment of which will be held at Little Rock's Bernice Gardens on Saturday, Nov. 2. Gates open at 11 a.m. Tickets are $7 for adults and $3 for kids 6-12. You can purchase tickets through the Green Corner Store at 1423 Main St., or at the festival website, www.arkansascornbreadfestival.com. According to the website, the 2012 festival had 3,300 paid attendees. Bernice Gardens is at Daisy Bates and Main Streets. 

In addition to cornbread cooking, cornbread tasting and best in show cornbread voting, vendors, an a food-truck food court, there will be a full day of music, courtesy of The Oxford American. Scheduled to appear are Monkhouse, Rosen Music Little Big Band, Greg Spradlin and the Libras, Gerald Johnson Quartet and Bluesboy Jag and the Juke Joint Zombies.
