Lawrence County Chamber of Commerce prepares for “Beatles at the Ridge” festival



Walnut Ridge, Arkansas – “Beatles at the Ridge” festival is coming back in Walnut Ridge.

The event will begin mid-morning on Saturday in downtown Walnut Ridge.

Since being canceled in 2020 and 2021 due to COVID-19, this year’s festival is highly anticipated.

The yearly tradition surrounds the British Invasion of Lawrence County and draws thousands to the region.

According to Chamber Executive Director Rachel King, it will be a busy day.

“All-day event. 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. It’s packed with a ton of fun. We have a cornhole tournament, we have a car show, we have over 70 vendors and six food vendors, and we have four bands coming,” said King.

King tells us this is a big event for Lawrence County.

“So this is a big event for Lawrence County. In 1964, the Beatles landed their plane in Lawrence County, and a lot of people got to see them up and close. It was a big deal back then. We like to do this festival every year it really just brings everyone in the community together,” said King. “It gives local businesses an opportunity to come out and promote themselves, and it brings people to our community and makes them aware of how much we love being together and having fun.”
