Turkey Trot Festival - Yellville

The Turkey Trot has been celebrated on the second Friday and Saturday of October in Yellville Arkansas every year since 1946. It was conceived as a way to call attention to the region's abundant wild turkeys. A highlight of the festival has been the "Turkey Toss," and in later  years the "Turkey Drop".  

The festival now includes crafts, vendors, a parade, and live entertainment throughout the weekend.
