43rd Annual Lum & Abner Festival Postponed

After careful consideration regarding the health and safety of our community, our sponsors, vendors, volunteers, and attendees, we have made the difficult decision to postpone the 43rd Annual Lum & Abner Festival scheduled for June 5-6, 2020.

As a result of the increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 pandemic and its economic impact, we feel this is the best way to proceed. We are very disappointed that we are unable to hold the festival as normally scheduled, but believe it is the right decision based on the information available to us at this time.

The Lum & Abner Festival Committee and Mena Advertising & Promotion Commission are communicating regularly. Plans are being discussed for an event as restrictions on gatherings ease. Additionally, plans are underway to make the 2021 festival better than ever!
