Booths full of crafts, arts, and information will line the streets.
In addition to several great restaurants and dessert shops in Downtown Walnut Ridge, Beatles at the Ridge Festival has many food vendors that offer pizza, barbecue, sandwiches, and of course, funnel cakes and other street festival staples.
Bud Loveall, an established vendor at The Fest for Beatles Fans in New York and Chicago, has agreed to join our Beatles at the Ridge family!
Bud attended college at Vincennes University in Indiana, but today calls Austin, TX home. He has one college-aged son, Kenny, and he loves Scrabble, The Beatles, and people in general. “Can we really live without each other?” is his Facebook quote.
Bud will be selling rare and collectible Beatles memorabilia along with new buttons, magnets, T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, and books. Come to Bud’s booth for the best of Beatles old and new!
