The 38th Annual Toad Suck Daze (TSD) is this coming weekend – May 4-6. If you don’t know what Toad Suck Daze is, then you will want to learn more about Conway’s most popular event.
There is so much to experience at Toad Suck Daze! Our family-friendly festival has something for all ages: concerts, shopping, carnival rides, children’s activities, and of course, the World Championship Toad Races starring our amphibious friends. (Yes, you read that right.) To top it off, admission is FREE. ~ Toad Suck Daze
One of the best features of Toad Suck Daze is its ability to bring together our community. There are many events to be part of during TSD weekend, both officially and unofficially associated with the festival. We thought we would highlight some of those events that might be of interest to you.
So, even if you don’t head down to the Toad Dome, there are other events you can attend — like art pop up events and a gardening workshop. If coffee is your thing, Round Mountain Coffee is hosting an event on Saturday night. If you really love breakfast, there are at least two options on this list.
Buckle up Conwegians, this week is jam-packed! We have a robust list of Toad Suck Daze events for this year’s Toad Suck Daze festival.
