HARRISON, Ark. – In an effort to help promote Harrison’s artists and musicians alike, organizers say they are ready for DEE-ZO-fest rain or shine this weekend.
Leading the event is the festival’s founder Jon Dezort. He says the musical line-up this year is one of the longest in the festival’s history and it is all thanks to the people who helped put the event together:
He says in addition to music, there will be visual artists performing and selling their work, outdoor games, as well as a home-cooked meal:
Dezort adds people who bring a nonperishable food item to donate to Ozark Share and Care will receive a discounted ticket price. Last year, the festival raised 445 pounds of food and this year’s organizers want to exceed that.
Dee-zo-fest will kick off at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Minnie Harris Park in Harrison.
