Annual Community Awards Banquet Postponed

Due to the recent developments regarding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Arkansas, the Mount Ida Area Chamber of Commerce has made the decision to postpone the Annual Community Awards Banquet until further notice. We regret having to make this decision but feel it is necessary for the safety and well being of our community and members.

In addition to the postponement of the Banquet, the deadline for accepting Volunteer of the Year Nominations is being extended. We will notify you via Facebook, our website, and the Montgomery County News as to the deadline for nominations as well as a new date for the Awards Banquet. Thank you for your patience and understanding.


Changes to upcoming Festivals

We have confirmed the dates for this year’s World Championship Quartz Crystal Dig. The new dates are September 25th and 26th, and Twin Creek Crystal
Mine (upper & lower mines) will be participating.
Additionally, we are taking the best elements from the Good Ol’ Days Festival and the Quartz, Quiltz, and Craftz Festivals and will be combining those
to create one BIG festival which will coincide with the World Championship Quartz Crystal Dig. This festival will offer something for everyone! This new festival, the Three Rivers Heritage Festival, will have live demonstrations, history, activities, all types of vendors  as well as Gem & Mineral Vendors, and a Car Show.
We are still working out the details, so Vendor Applications and Digger Applications are not available, yet. We will post these forms as soon as they are available.
