TURKEY TROT 2.0 OCTOBER 12 & 13 2018


THE 73RD TURKEY TROT FESTIVAL WILL BE HELD

ON  OCTOBER 12 AND 13TH  2018            


THE MID-MARION COUNTY ROTARY CLUB VOTED 

TO TAKE OVER MANAGEMENT OF THE 2018 TURKEY TROT 

FESTIVAL, THE LONGEST CONTINUOUS FESTIVAL IN 

THE STATE OF ARKANSAS.


This was the result of members of the local community reaching out to the 

Mid-Marion County ROTARY Club, which for years has 

sponsored the parade, to assume sponsorship of the entire festival.  

From local businesses that rely on significant sales during the 

festival to longtime residents remembering the tradition of bringing the community 

together for family, friends, and high school reunions; 

ROTARY listened and voted to sponsor the festival as an important fundraising 

effort to support our local youth in Marion County.



WHY WE DECIDED TO SPONSOR TURKEY TROT:

The center of the Chamber’s decision was the tradition of tossing wild turkeys from an airplane over the festival.  

Fifty years ago that was an accepted procedure to re-populate wild turkeys in the Ozarks.  

The ROTARY Club agrees that this tradition is no longer viable.  Controversy surrounding the cruelty of 

dropping turkeys from planes or buildings that have plagued previous sponsorship efforts have conditioned 

ROTARY’s sponsorship.  In the event turkeys are dropped, ROTARY will withdraw sponsorship of 

future festivals and youth programs within the community will be severely impacted.

Thank you Marion County Rotory Club for trusting that our community can come together
