El Dorado: The Festival City

In addition to the four seasons of nature, El Dorado also has a festival season. This is a year-round celebration of events and happenings that provides activities and entertainment for all ages. Our spring celebrations start with a host of events such as the annual Mayhaw Festival, May on Main, Bream Festival, and Soul Fest. During the summer months, a collection of downtown events attracts visitors and locals to grilling competitions, car and bike shows, Summer on the Square, and a historic reenactment of the infamous Parnell-Tucker gunfight at Showdown at Sunset.  The fall season brings MusicFest, the Murphy USA Shootout, and the Murphy USA Classic.  The holiday season kicks off with a downtown lighting ceremony on the square and continues throughout the remainder of the year with festive activities throughout the community.  Celebrate year ‘round in the Festival City!
