Our Purpose

We have a lot of fun putting on the PurpleHull Pea Festival.  We have fun seeing you have fun.  But there's more to the festival than meets the eye.

There is a purpose behind the madness at the PurpleHull Pea Festival.  It is this:  When the festival began, there was no park facility in Emerson.

Thanks to a lot of work by the festival and its volunteers, the generosity of the Emmert family of Emerson and the Arkansas Department of Parks & Tourism, PurpleHull Pea Park is now a reality.

The festival continues to strive for improvements to the park, and that remains one of our primary goals.

So - for those of you who have helped us in any way - and continue to help us - we say, "Thank you."

Thank you to everyone who comes to the festival.

Thank you to everyone who buys a Pea-Shirt.

Thank you to our wonderful sponsors.

Thank you to our vendors.

Thank you to all our multitude of volunteers.

Thank you to everyone who participated in any way.
