Up and ComingOn Saturday, Sept. 5
Join us Saturday, Sept. 5 at 2 p.m., on the J. Huston Tavern lawn, for the annual Arrow Rock Ice Cream Freeze-Off. This deliciously fun event puts you in the judge's seat for the many entries of homemade ice creams (Yes, you get to sample each entry!). After you've sampled and picked your favorite entry you'll be treated to a piece of homemade cake topped off with a scoop of ice cream. Your $4 admission benefits the Experience Arrow Rock tourism committee and helps plan future fun events in the village!
What's even more fun than sampling all the varieties of ice creams? Entering your own home-churned recipe in the contest! Making ice cream is a cool summer distraction. Get your friends or family involved and come up with a fantastic flavor that you think will take first place! There's no fee for participating and every entry will receive a prize! Get more details and enter the contest by contacting the event coordinator.

George Caleb Bingham House,
1837 | One of America’s great 19th century artists, Bingham is famous for his portraits and scenes of river life and politics. He built this Federal style house in Arrow Rock and lived here intermittently through the 1840s. Fortunately for us, in an age before photography existed, George Caleb Bingham recorded for us the images of his Missouri.
