In one month, the 36th annual Toad Suck Daze festival, presented by Crain Buick GMC and Crain Kia, will kick off in downtown Conway. Organizers say they can’t recall a more exciting time before the festival.
Toad Suck Daze earned the gold award in the Festival of the Year category at the 2017 ALFiE (Arkansans Love Festivals and Events) Awards Luncheon, which took place Jan. 26, 2017, during the Arkansas Festivals and Events Association’s annual conference and trade show in Little Rock.
Children’s programming at Toad Suck Daze earned the festival a Gold Pinnacle Award from the International Festivals & Events Association. Toad Suck Daze took home a total of eight awards at this year’s convention.
Brad Lacy: "Leave it to Conway to find a way to send kids to college, children to preschool, Shakespeare to high schools, and hanging baskets to downtown. The lowly toad does some pretty cool things in a pretty cool town."
The 35th annual Toad Suck Daze festival will feature a number of changes designed to make the festival “more convenient and more family friendly than ever."
