The SouthArk Outdoor Expo is in its 16th year, and we look forward to sharing a great day of fun with you! Enjoy a full day of hands-on activities for outdoor enthusiasts, families and children, including a demonstration of chainsaw wood carving, simulated rock climbing, target shooting, bait casting, the Arkansas Game and Fish Commission 1,500 gallon aquarium, archery, model airplanes, craft vendors and much more.
The Outdoor Expo raises much-needed funds for the benefit of SouthArk students. We started this event fifteen years ago in the back parking lot of the college, with a few exhibits and a handful of cooking teams.Last year, we hosted over 65 vendors and exhibitors, 40 cooking teams, and more than 350 volunteers from the College and community.
These activities are available throughout the day
