2021 Eureka Springs Volkswagen Weekend and Ozark Euro Rally

July 17th, 2021

Eureka Springs Volkswagen Weekend 2021Volkswagen fans and German car enthusiasts alike will not want to miss the 2021 Eureka Springs Volkswagen Weekend and Ozark Euro Rally. August 27th, 28th, and 29th, 2021.

Volkswagens have been popular since the early 1960’s and the Eureka Springs Volkswagen Weekend has been a local tradition since 1992. People come from all over the region every year to show off their own cars or to see all the gussied up VW’s.

So many folks and cars show up, in fact, that they had to make an overflow show, some years back. Then the overflow show grew so large that it earned its own name: the Eureka Springs Ozark Euro Rally. Though this event was originally just the VW-show overflow, it is now open to German cars of all types and has its own rabid fan-base of attendees.

Discover Cosmic Cavern – Guided Cave Tours and More

April 10th, 2021

Cosmic CavernArkansas is home to some of the best caves in the country and many are within easy reach of Eureka Springs. Cosmic Cavern is a great example, with interesting rock formations, two underground lakes, wild cave tours, and all less than 30 minutes away from 5 Ojo.

Cosmic Cavern is Arkansas’s largest privately owned show cave. The cave was discovered in 1845 but wasn’t developed as a show cave until 1927. As with virtually all Arkansas caves, Cosmic Cavern is a “living” karst cave.

Karst caves are created by natural erosion over thousands of years. Flowing water slowly eats away softer rock, like limestone, from harder, surrounding stone to leave an empty pocket. A “living” cave is one that is still forming through this process of flowing water and deposited minerals.

Cosmic Cavern is considered one of the top Show Caves in the United States and their cave tours are very popular.
