Jonquils are in bloom at Historic Washington State Park and a tremendous line-up of Entertainment and fun await those who will be visiting the park on March 20, through 22, for the 52nd Annual Jonquil Festival.

In addition to our crafters and food concessions, festivities will include the Four States Iron Munchers, 5K run, and singing competition.

The Washington Volunteer Fire Department will be having a Burger Fundraiser Saturday beginning at 11:30 am under the Farmer’s Market pavilion. There will also be a free concert featuring Dillan Cate, a country/rock artist from Northeast Arkansas beginning at 11:30 am.

One thing that makes the Jonquil Festival stand out from all other festivals would be the atmosphere.  Strolling the boardwalks, watching children play in the jonquils, picnicking on festival food or enjoying music under the entertainment tent, there is something for every family member to enjoy. After shopping and enjoying a great meal, you will want to experience history in the 19th century by touring locations such as the Weapons Museum, the Print Museum, and the Blacksmith Shop, famed home of the Bowie Knife.

Williams Tavern Restaurant will be open serving its delectable buffet all three days from 11 am – 3 pm.
