SaluteTroopsPicPops on the River is a heralded community event that many remember for years to come. The Arkansas Democrat-Gazette is inviting all military members and their families to be a part of the event like never before:


All military are invited to attend & will receive military discounts upon registration


The event is free to the public from 3pm-10 p.m., but food and merchandise do cost extra. That is why we created the Military Appreciation Discount Card for all military members (active, retired or reserve) and their families. Save money at select event merchants (including food, refreshments) at the event by picking up your card at the the Military Appreciation Tent at the main entrance. Goodies and other items will also be given during specific times. In addition, starting at 5 p.m., the first 100 members who request a reserved seat in the Amphitheater for the concert that evening will get assigned seating for free.


Be a part of our Armed Forces Salute


We will take a moment to recognize members of their respective branch of the military in our Armed Forces Salute with the Arkansas Symphony Orchestra.  We will ask members active and retired to stand and be recognized during the event.
