In addition to the Friday night concert from LANCO and a Saturday night performance from Stuart, festivities include a Toad Suck Tinkerfest, which "will turn a downtown city block into an interactive learning environment for kids of all ages," a press release says, "Museum of Discovery 'Awesome Science' shows, a Conway Symphony Orchestra 'Instrument Petting Zoo,' PBS Kids characters, and 'Kids Shakespeare Improv' from Arkansas Shakespeare Theater."

The Toad Suck Daze committee also announced a series of monetary gifts, including $35,000 to Arkansas Preschool Plus, $20,000 to the Conway Downtown Partnership, $3,500 to Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre, $2,000 to the University of Arkansas Community College at Morrilton, $1,500 to the Blackbird Academy of Arts, $2,000 to the Conway Symphony Orchestra and $1,500 to the Red Curtain Theatre, as well as $15,000 in scholarships to seven Faulkner County students.
