North Mt. Olive  & University Streets in the heart of Siloam Springs' beautiful                                                         historic downtown.

      The Siloam Springs Annual Heritage Festival hosted by the Siloam Springs Museum is a family-friendly summer celebration of history, community, and traditional lifeways and is always celebrated on the fourth Saturday of June.   

     This event's history began on June 24, 1880, when the founding of Siloam Springs was first celebrated.  The yearly celebration of the founding of Siloam Springs came to be called the Annual Picnic.  After going through various ups and downs, the Annual Picnic evolved into our Heritage Festival.  

     In addition to great live old time gospel and bluegrass music and food, and vendors selling traditional and handmade items, visitors can enjoy a walking tour of the Historic Downtown, craft demonstrations, Living History performances, exhibits of historical items, heritage group members in historic garb, and much more.
