View past World Champions

"The World’s Championship Duck Calling Contest in Stuttgart, Arkansas is the longest running calling contest in history. Since 1936 the greatest duck callers from across the United States and Canada have gathered on Main Street during the weekend after Thanksgiving in order to determine who the World Champion. In modern days the contest has become the centerpiece of the “Wings over the Prairie Festival” in Stuttgart. Gone are the days when a duck caller need only show up to compete. Now in order to qualify to compete for the World’s Championship, a caller must win a preliminary calling contest that is sanctioned by the Stuttgart Chamber of Commerce, the body that governs and runs the World’s Championship Duck Calling Contest as well as the “Wings over the Prairie Festival”. It is a difficult feat to become the World’s Duck Calling Champion, and it often catapults the winner to a career in the outdoor industry." @callingducks

Mutton Bustin’ Contest

Get ready for a rough ride!

Get ready for a rough ride!

Mutton Bustin’ is a favorite of many kids, but adults and spectators enjoy it greatly. As the gate swings open and the sheep darts across the arena fans stand and cheer for each contestant.

This year Marsh Fest is bringing Mutton Bustin’ for not only kids to participate in but for the crowds to cheer them on. When the last gate swings open and the child raises his arms in the air a buckle will be awarded to the Best Mutton Bustin’ rider for the 2020 Trevor Lee Chesson Mutton Bustin’ contest.

Stay tuned for more details!
