I just found this posted on Facebook and am sharing, in case anyone is interested in attending.

Boggy Creek Festival 2014

Oct 24-25

Main Street and Community Center (@ Highway 71)
Fouke, Arkansas 71837

The 2nd Annual Boggy Creek Festival will be Oct 24-25, 2014. A special meet n' greet get-together will be hosted on Friday Oct 24 (location TBA), while the main event will happen along Fouke's main strip just off Highway 71 and Main Street. (Just come to Fouke and you can't miss it!)

The Miller County Fairgrounds, located at East Red Cut Road just off Highway 71 in Fouke, is available for tent camping. The fee is $10 per night.

Bus tours will be available for purchase. The tours, guided by Beast of Boggy Creek author Lyle Blackburn, will visit historical sites in the Fouke area which pertain to The Legend of Boggy Creek movie and sightings of the Fouke Monster. The tour includes a stop at the infamous Boggy Creek, where participants can take photos near the waterway. Tours are $10 for adults, first come first serve.

Regional bigoot researchers, authors, and television personalities will be doing presentations in the Community Center. Speakers will include Lyle Blackburn, Ken Gerhard, Marvin Leeper, Larry Parks and Jim Whitehead, Robert Swain, and Craig Woolheater. There is a single $10 fee to attend all speaker presentations (to help cover their travel expenses).
