Up and ComingDue to a persistent forecast of heavy rain and potential severe weather for Thursday, Oct. 2 (with rain also on Wednesday) the Children's Craft Festival has been cancelled. This is the first time we have had to cancel a Children’s Craft Festival since we began the biennial event in 1984, but the safety of everyone is our primary concern.
Make plans to attend the Arrow Rock Heritage Craft Festival on Oct. 11 & 12.The 46th annual event takes place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both Saturday and Sunday, and will feature dozens of talented artisans, plus live musical performances, storytellers, a Civil War encampment, food vendors, and the pristine autumn beauty of the National Historic Landmark village.
The $2 admission includes parking and shuttle transportation, all festival entertainment, and a new package check service that gives attendees and opportunity to drop off their purchases for safe-keeping while they're enjoying the festival.

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.
