WYNNE, Ark. (KAIT) – It’s all fun and games in Wynne, as the 45th annual Farm Fest has begun.

From June 9 to 11, bring your friends and family to the Wynne Sports Complex for several activities.

The activities include live music, arts and crafts, a classic car show, a spectacular new carnival, the Delta Smoke BBQ content, and much more.

For the 45th year of this annual event, there are a few new aspects.

“This is the first year that it is out at the sports complex. So, it’s a whole new location, a whole carnival and we are super excited to see how many people have come out,” said Lexie Gahr, marketing and membership manager for the Cross County Chamber of Commerce.

Gahr said she has grown up with the Farm Fest in downtown Wynne, but it is exciting to see it in a bigger space.

“And the fact that we literally had to change venues to make our carnival bigger and better is phenomenal. And it just makes me happy,” she said. “Our only hope is to just continue growing Farm Fest.”

Saturday they have a car show and fishing derby planned.

According to the director of the BBQ competition, around 40 teams are going head to head. Most teams came from seven different states.
