A tradition in Old Washington, Arkansas will not happen for the second year in a row due to concerns about Coronavirus.

The event held in the early Spring always celebrates the return of the beautiful Jonquil flowers to Hempstead County.

Both the Arkansas State Parks website and the Jonquil Festival Facebook page has announced the 2021 festival has been cancelled, following the cancellation of last year’s event.

Sad news certainly for many people, who annually flock to Southwest Arkansas to enjoy the beauty.

This event at the Historic Washington State Park is usually highly attended.
