A Southern tradition for 69 years, this four-day festival is packed full of mule events that celebrate the "beast of burden" and the role of mules in rural farming. Other activities include rodeos, arts and crafts, carnival, vendors, music, dance, and a parade that attracts 20,000 on its own, and more! New this year are tours of the last standing mule stable in Benson and tours of historic Benson in horse-drawn wagons. This festival, which draws 30,000-40,000 people, is filled with family fun and activities for everyone young and old.
