It’s time for the bi-annual Arkansas Times Margarita Festival, presented by Milagro Tequila! (So popular we have to do two fests a year!) The Arkansas Times Fall Margarita Fest promises to be just as wild (but not as stormy) as our spring fest. Join us from 6 p.m.-9 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 14 at the beautiful Argenta Plaza at Sixth and Main streets in North Little Rock.

General admission is $30 and includes margarita samples from our competitors. Food for purchase will be available from popular food trucks. VIP tickets are $100 and include a separate entrance to the VIP area, special cocktails with Milagro Premium Select Barrel tequila and catered food from Mr. Cajun’s Kitchen — the original chef at Ristorante Capeo!


With so many creative spins on the classic cocktail, it’s hard to pick a favorite, but it sure is fun to try! Vote for your favorite, meet the bartenders who crafted it and get down to music by Club 27.

The following restaurants will be competing for the coveted Arkansas Times Margarita Fest trophy: 

Ciao Baci


Mockingbird Bar & Tacos

Arlington Resort Hotel & Spa
