The Dardanelle Area Chamber of Commerce Board met on Wednesday, July 8 concerning the 73rd Annual Mt Nebo Chicken Fry and have announced that the event will be held August 22nd at Veteran’s River Front Park. Officials state that it will be held at the location ONLY FOR THIS YEAR and it will return to Mt. Nebo to be held in 2021.

Officials state that the “Chicken Fry will consist of pre-sale Award Winning TYSON Chicken Dinners and a snazzy Tshirt (yet to be designed).”

They continued, “The last two years the Chamber has taken a huge hit with the cancellation of the Free State of Yell Fest and now with COVID 19. The Chamber really needs this fundraiser to be profitable in order to promote and support our area.”

The Chicken Fry committee will meet July 15th at 11 a.m. At the Dardanelle Community Center.
