Arkansas Food Hall of Fame 2021 Induction Ceremony

February 22nd, 2021 from 6:30 PM to 7:30 PM

Winners will be announced! See who are the 2021 inductees to the Arkansas Food Hall of Fame!


This program, created and managed by the Department of Arkansas Heritage, is a statewide effort to recognize the “taste-setters” among us who provide an extra helping of good ol’ Arkansas hospitality. With multiple categories, there’s a recipe for recognition for everyone, from die-hard foodies to casual diners.

A nomination period is open to the public annually. Final selection will be by a blue-ribbon panel of judges selected by the Arkansas Food Hall of Fame Committee. Admittance into the Arkansas Food Hall of Fame will be a triumphant recognition of those long-standing restaurants that have also become legendary attractions in Authentic Arkansas. These are the places with the dishes we crave and will drive hours, if need be, just to take a bite. Eligible restaurants must be owned and operated in Arkansas and have been in business for at least 25 years; national chain restaurants need not apply. Each year, three honorees will be inducted.
