On behalf of the DeWitt Chamber of Commerce, welcome to the City of DeWitt, a warm and friendly farming community, located in the center of Arkansas County in Southeast Arkansas.
DeWitt is one of two county seats. DeWitt is the hub of the southern part of Arkansas County, surrounded by thousands of acres of rich farm land. Many of our businesses revolve around agriculture; however, we also have businesses related to education, medical, and general industry. We are proud of our businesses’ longevity. We have several businesses greater than 75 years old.
Our city houses a campus of the Phillips Community College of the University of Arkansas. This educational institution offers various degrees in business, science, manufacturing and nursing. It provides accessible, affordable education, training and public services.
Our area is also rich with recreation. All year long, you can take advantage of activities such as hunting and fishing. We have several hunting lodges within our area. The White River National Wildlife Refuge lies to our east and the Bayou Meto Wildlife Management Area lies to our west.
Another recreational activity/event is the Arkansas County Fair and Livestock Show. This week long event features Miss Arkansas County Pageant, an exciting carnival midway, arts and crafts, rodeo and a demolition derby.
Lastly, the DeWitt Chamber of Commerce hosts “Christmas on the Square”. This yearly event is held at the Arkansas County Courthouse in DeWitt.
Enjoy your stay and we welcome your return. If you would like to become a member of the DeWitt Chamber of Commerce, please contact us.
President, DeWitt Chamber of Commerce
