This year the Ozark Folk Center State Park is celebrating our 40th Anniversary. This unique park was opened on May 5, 1973, after more than a decade of lobbying and hard work by many people from Mountain View, Stone County, Arkansas and as far off as Washington, DC . Dedicated to perpetuating the crafts, music and folk life of the Ozark region, our Arkansas State Park continues to offer old time music, classes, youth programs, entertainment and hands-on fun for everyone.
The Sunday, May 5th Dedication Day Celebration is in the Craft Village we will have crafts from then and now, speakers from the opening year; a slide show of 1973 showing throughout the day in the White Oak Auditorium; a clothing display of dresses worn the opening year; and, of course, music. Admission is the special 1973 price of $2.50 for everyone over 6 years old. Children six and under are free.
