2018 Little Rock Soup Sunday

Join us for the most delicious day of the year!

Ask anyone. Little Rock Soup Sunday is one of THE MOST FUN events in Central Arkansas. The atmosphere is “souper” casual and family-friendly, the food is always delicious, and the cause most important –  the future of Arkansas’s kids. If you want to see how much fun it is, flip through these pictures or watch this short video from last year’s event!

The Wally Allen Ballroom will be lined with central Arkansas’s best recipes, biggest soup-lovers, and nicest people around. We’ll have silent and live auctions to please even the pickiest of shoppers, and music to keep kids of all ages on the dance floor. We’re thrilled that Capi Peck, owner and executive chef at Trio’s Restaurant, will be the Featured Chef of our 37th annual event.

Event chairs Brian Clary and Jill Fogleman invite you to bring your friends, your family, or anyone else who loves good food, nice people, fun music, silent and live auctions, and raising money for good causes. And don’t forget your muffin tin!

Regular admission adult tickets are $25 in advance – ($30 after 5 p.m. on Friday, January 26th). Tickets for children 5-17 are $10 and children younger than 5 are FREE! Regular admission gets you all the soups, breads and desserts the main ballroom can hold – plus the silent and live auctions, music, dancing, and all manner of soup-fueled frivolity.

Patron tickets are $50 each – ($60 after 5 p.m. on January 26th). Purchase of a Patron ticket will get you access to the Patron room, where you’ll enjoy soup and special appetizers from Trio’s, complimentary beer and wine, and special desserts that won’t be available in the main ballroom. And of course, you don’t have to stay in the Patron room. You’ll also have access to the main ballroom to enjoy all the soups and the live and silent auctions.
