What to know

Ozark Folk Center State Park is dedicated to perpetuating the music, crafts, and culture of the Ozarks. Located in Mountain View, Arkansas, and open mid-April to mid-November, the park offers visitors an opportunity to watch artisans work, to stroll through the Heritage Herb Garden, and to hear live Southern mountain music.

In the Craft Village at Ozark Folk Center, more than 20 working artisans demonstrate, create and sell handmade items Tuesday through Saturday in season. Handcrafted items like flame-painted copper jewelry, leather purses and goods, baskets, brooms, stained glass, ironwork, pottery, knives, weavings, quilts, wood carvings, spun yarn, soap, candles, and more are made onsite. Artisans also host workshops throughout the year for a more immersive crafting experience with personal attention and hands-on instruction. You can register for workshops and buy tickets to shows online.

The Heritage Herb Garden is where old-time pass-along plants, medicinal herbs, native plants, and edible herbs are grown. The Garden functions as a living classroom for workshops and programs. Events celebrating both culinary and medicinal herbs are held in May and October.

Music is at the heart of this park. Fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin, dulcimer, and autoharp are just some of the instruments that combine to produce that enduring Ozark Mountain sound. The 1,000-seat theater hosts live concerts every Thursday through Saturday night in season and special events, bringing legendary artists from all facets of Americana music to the stage. Workshops are also available at scheduled times for musicians and dancers of all skill levels.

You can also be a part of Ozark Highlands Radio, a syndicated program recorded at the park that shares the music and stories of the Ozark region. The weekly program is available on multiple public radio stations or to audiences anywhere on Soundcloud, iTunes and OzarkHighlandsRadio.com.

When booking a visit, check availability at The Cabins at Dry Creek, with Ozark cabin rooms conveniently located on-site. Enjoy Southern cooking in the Skillet Restaurant, or try the Smokehouse in the Craft Village. One of Arkansas’s five lodge parks, the Ozark Folk Center also has a conference center with facilities for unique and memorable meetings.

Loco Ropes, a challenging ropes course and zip line, is located on-site and popular among groups and families.
