Celebrating 43 Years of Arkansas History with Arkansas Food
Local History. Local Food.
A great Arkansas story deserves great Arkansas food, so we are celebrating the 43rd anniversary of the Fayetteville wedding of Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham with an outdoor dinner of local food and wine on Friday, October 26th at the Clinton House Museum. It also happens to be Hillary’s birthday, so there will be cake to honor her 70th birthday!
Dinner is being catered by The Farmer’s Table Cafe and includes pairings with local wines as well. This event will start with a cocktail time at 6:30 where guests can stroll the garden and nibble on hand-passed hors d’oeuvres and wine. Dinner and program will start at 7:00 under the tents in the yard. Our menu includes a curried sweet potato lentil soup, a fig pecan and apple harvest salad, garlic rosemary beef loin over red smashed potatoes with bacon shallot brussels, and butternut risoto on wilted greens. Is your mouth watering yet?
Parking will be available across the street, and we are happy to provide assistance for anyone needing to be dropped off on site.
Our gracious, honorary co-hosts are Dr. Morriss and Ann Henry, who hosted the Clinton-Rodham wedding reception in their home after the wedding on October 11, 1975. Use the form below to purchase your tickets.
Bill Clinton and Hillary Rodham were married in the living room on October 11, 1975 after Bill had purchased the house for them in June of that year. The future U.S. President and future Secretary of State left this house in late 1976 to go to Little Rock where Bill Clinton took office as the Attorney General of Arkansas. They owned the home until 1983, renting it out to college students before selling it to Dr. Jim and Janet Greeson. Seventeen years after that fateful October day, the Clintons found themselves moving into the White House.
