What to know

Ozark Folk Center is the only park of its kind in the country and the only one dedicated to the music, crafts, and culture of the Ozarks. Located in Mountain View, the Folk Music Capital of the World, the park offers visitors the rare opportunity to watch artisans at work, to stroll through the Heritage Herb Garden, and to hear music played throughout these hills.

Open mid-April through mid-November, special features of the park include a Craft Village where more than 20 working artisans create handmade items like baskets, brooms, iron work, pottery, knives, weavings, quilts wood carvings, spun yarn, soap, candles, and more. These artists are happy to talk about their work, and they also host workshops throughout the year for a more immersive experience with personal attention and instruction.

In addition to crafts, music is at the heart of this park. Fiddle, banjo, guitar, mandolin, dulcimer, and autoharp are just some of the old-time instruments that combine to produce that enduring Ozark Mountain sound. The 1,000-seat Music Auditorium hosts concerts and special events mid-April through mid-November, bringing legendary artists from around the region and across the country to the stage. Workshops are also available for musicians 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.

The Heritage Herb Garden is another unique feature of the park where old-time pass-along plants and edible herbs are grown like rosemary, scented geranium, sage, and mint. The Garden functions as a living classroom for workshops and programs. Events celebrating both culinary and medicinal herbs are held in May and October.
When booking a visit, check availability at The Cabins at Dry Creek, with 60 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.
