Come to the High Cotton on the Bayou Festival at the Scott Plantation Settlement in Scott Arkansas and step back into history! Enjoy a wonderful day full of turn-of-the-century family-style fun! 

Tour authentic plantation buildings that compose the Scott Plantation Settlement. Watch demonstrations of heritage skills such as grinding and cooking sorghum, blacksmithing, spinning yarn, needlework, and butter making.

Special crafts are available for children with creative spirits. Children will also enjoy playing heritage games such as hopscotch, jumping rope, sack races, and walking on stilts.  Parents can join their children in face painting.  

Listen to live music while you stroll or ride around the settlement on an antique school bus. Ride a hay wagon within the Scott Connections compound. Music will be provided by the following artists: Eddie and the Good Hearts, Roundelay,  Duets by Carol Dabney and Rod Ragsdale, and local talent.

The Sweet Shop located in the original Scott Train Depot will offer coffee and a selection of homemade goodies from start to finish.

Local produce venders, authors, and artists will have items available for purchase. 

Admission is $3 for adults, $1 for children ages 6-17. Children under age 6 admitted free.
