Celebration of community is a common theme in the River Valley.  Main Street Russellville’s Taste of the Valley is an award-winning party of delectable food and drink sampling provided by River Valley restaurants, vineyards and food service institutions. Autumn brings the Russellville Downtown Fall Festival and Chili Cookoff. The Downtown Fall Festival is a fun-filled, day-long nostalgic celebration bringing back the days when carnivals set up on the streets of Downtown Russellville. Championship chili sampling is part of the fun as well.

The communities surrounding Russellville are big on community spirit as well. Dover celebrates the settling of the foothills during Ozark Memories Day. Atkins Picklefest is a jubilee of the delicious brine-packed cucumbers. You can even sample a fried pickle. And across the river the town of Dardanelle celebrates all things Yell County at Yell fest where, yes, you can enter a yelling contest.
