vents for our long-running festivval, “Ding Dong Days in Dumas” begin the second week in September and conclude with Fun Day and other events on Saturday of the third week.

In 2013, we moved the festival from July to September and combined Ding Dong Days with the homecoming festivities of Dumas High School. Even though the time of year is different, we kept the activities which folks have come to love and expect including:

  • Fun Day
  • Methodist Men's Pancake Breakfast
  • Daughters of Charity of AR 5K Run
  • M&F Bank of Dumas sponsored Parade
  • Antique Car Show
  • Food and Crafts Booths
  • Baggo Tournament

  • Desha County Open House
  • Ding Dong Days Beauty Pageant
  • Production from the Dumas Area Arts Council
  • BBQ Cook-off

Mark your calendar for the all the fun! You've heard it before, but this time it's true, “There's something for everyone!”
