4th Annual ‘Wagons for Vets’ on Saturday March 12 in Texarkana


The 4th Annual “Wagons for Vets” Chuckwagon gathering takes place at the Four States Fairgrounds in Texarkana, Arkansas on Saturday, March 12, 2022. For those that love history, super nice people, and really good food, this event is a whole lot of fun.

Some of these antique chuck wagons can put your most modern food trucks to shame. It’s fascinating to see how some of these teams cook, and even more to see that they are using authentic and antique tools to get the job done. The annual Car Show will be taking place and a big display of antique tractors. All of this together makes the Texarkana Wagons for Veterans event one of the communities favorites.
