Little Rock Soup Sunday 2017

NEW-Soup-Sunday-Logo-167x300Soup Sunday is THIS Sunday! YOU CAN STILL GET TICKETS AT THE DOOR!

Regular admission adult tickets are $25 in advance – ($30 after 5 p.m. on Friday, January 27th). Patron tickets are $50 each – ($60 after 5 p.m. on January 27th). Tickets for children 5-17 are $10 and children younger than 5 are FREE!

Not only will we celebrate 36 years of Little Rock Soup Sunday, but also 40 years of Arkansas Advocates for Children and Families. We have LOTS and LOTS to celebrate.

Little Rock Soup Sunday is one of the most fun events in central Arkansas. Really! The atmosphere is casual and family-friendly, the food is always delicious, and the cause most important –  the future of Arkansas’s kids.

Our Soup Sunday committee members have done such a great job. They’ve put together a great silent and live auction, and have lined up more yummy soup vendors than we’ve ever had. So skip lunch and come hungry – they’ll be plenty of soups, breads, and desserts to sample, generously donated by over 40 area restaurants (See the mostly up-to-date list here). We’re thrilled that Chris McMillan, chef at Boulevard Bread Company, will be our Featured Chef this year.

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. Plus, Craig O’Neill will serve as our emcee. That alone is worth the ticket price. And don’t forget your muffin tin!

Patron tickets are $50 each ($60 after 5 p.m. on Friday, January 27th). Those tickets gain you access to the Patron room, where Boulevard Bread Company will provide soup and special appetizers. Patron ticket holders receive complimentary beer and wine in the Patron room, and also special desserts that won’t be available in the main ballroom. And of course, you don’t have to stay in the Patron room. Patron ticket holders also have access to the main ballroom where the rest of the soups and the live and silent auctions will be.
