The 127th annual Gravette Day will take place on Saturday, August 8, 2020, in Gravette, Arkansas. Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Gravette Day will take on a different look this year.


PARADE The parade will head toward Main Street at 12:00 PM and feature Grand Marshal Berl Dean Harris. Berl is known to many in the community for his long standing auto business and is said to have one of the oldest businesses in town.

PAGEANTS Pageants will start after the live music. Contents from newborn to age 21 will take the stage with the goal of winning their respective division. Miss Teen Gravette 2020 and Miss Gravette 2020 will be crowned at 7:30 PM.

PICNIC ON THE PORCH Residents are encouraged to be together while staying apart by having a front porch picnic, reminiscent of the original Gravette Day more than 100 years ago. There will be a front door/front porch decorating contest judged by the Greater Gravette Chamber of Commerce.
