The Newport Area Chamber of Commerce is now accepting vendor applications for the 18th annual Depot Days Festival to be held Saturday, September 26, 2015, on Front Street in downtown Newport.  The festival is a showcase of local, regional and national talent paying tribute to the rich musical history of Jackson County for which Rock ‘n’ Roll Highway 67 was recognized by the Arkansas Legislature and Governor Mike Beebe years ago.

Rogers and the Allstars, Tim Crouch & the Bluegrass Willies, Martin McDaniel and Ricochet.  The Rock ‘n’ Roll Highway 67 Museum will be open as well from noon until 4 p.m. with Sonny Burgess and Ace Cannon available for autographs and photographs.
