Original Ozark Folk Festival logoAmerica’s longest, continuously running folk festival, the Original Ozark Folk Festival, is celebrating its 67th return, October 7 – 11, 2014.

The Original Ozark Folk Festival has been held every year since 1948 and, from the very start, has featured true Ozark locals playing traditional folk music,
often on homemade instruments. The Original Ozark Folk Festival is more than music, however. It is also craftsmen and artists selling genuine Ozark folk masterpieces that they’ve whittled, painted, and sewed.

The Original Ozark Folk Festival is also dancing! Square dancing, clogging, and the Barefoot Ball are all an important part of the festivities, not to mention the parade with Original Ozark Folk Festival royalty, free concerts in Basin Spring Park, a singer/songwriter contest, and lots more.

Held once again at Eureka Springs City Auditorium, this year’s Original Ozark Folk Festival headliners include The Ozark Mountain Daredevils with special guests Brewer & Shipley and Danny Cox in concert at The Auditorium on Saturday night. Thursday night’s Barefoot Ball features music from the Cindy Woolf Band featuring Mark Bilyeu of Big Smith – check out the schedule:
