Hamburg, Arkansas, is a special place to call home. Located in Ashley County, it is a close-knit community known for its annual World Famous Armadillo Festival. This festival celebrates the unique and diverse wildlife found in the area, particularly the armadillos. It brings together residents and visitors for fun-filled activities, live music, delicious food, and a chance to experience the local culture. The local culture in Hamburg also includes a wonderful farmer’s market, public murals, and – everyone’s favorite – Hamburg Holidays each December.
Hamburg is proud to be the hometown of Scottie Pippen, Chase Outlaw, and The Martins. Scottie Pippen, a former professional basketball player, is widely recognized for his accomplishments as a key player in the Chicago Bulls' championship-winning team during the 1990s. Chase Outlaw is Arkansas’ most-recognized professional bull rider, first appearing on the Professional Bull Riding (PBR) scene in 2011. The gospel trio, The Martins, are also beloved Hamburg natives. This Christian vocal group has recorded over a dozen albums, and is composed of siblings Joyce Martin Sanders, Jonathan Martin, and Judy Martin Hess.
Apart from these notable figures, Hamburg offers a warm and welcoming atmosphere where neighbors become friends, and everyone feels like family. The community takes pride in its rich history, natural beauty, and strong sense of unity. Whether it's enjoying the scenic outdoors, attending local events, or simply sharing a conversation with a neighbor, Hamburg offers a special charm that makes it a wonderful place to call home.
