Crossett Historical Society and the Delta XI chapter of Beta Sigma Phi have announced the cancellation of the 42nd annual Wiggins Cabin Festival scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 10.

“Arkansas Department of Health restrictions and Center for Disease Control guidelines suggest that we cannot safely host the festival at this time,” representatives stated in a press release. 

“Our greatest priority is the health and safety of our community, vendors, volunteers, and guests. It is with sad hearts that we make this announcement. 

“The festival is an important fundraiser for each of these groups. The profit made from the festival each year goes to serve families in our community  through several programs and individual donations as well as the maintenance and upkeep of the cabin and cabin grounds. 

“We will be back next year on the standing date of the festival, the second Saturday in October,” the release said. 

If you are interested in either of the organizations contact Crossett Historical Society president Sylvia White at 870-364-8423 or Delta XI president Kelli White at 870-510-0443.
