Come to Mountain View for Folk Festival and visit the Ozark Folk Center State Park!
The Ozark Folk Center Craft Village will be celebrating Folk Festival with an Open House Friday and Saturday, April 17 and 18th this year. During the Open House there is no admission charge. The Village will be open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days.
Park in the lower parking lot and start your tour with an fresh popcorn or other treat at the General Store. The park shuttle will run you up to the top of the hill.
The entrance to the Craft Village is through the newly remodeled Homespun Gift Shop. Take a few minutes to browse the wide selection of handcrafted items made in Arkansas and look at the new Ozark Folk Center t-shirts.
The Craft Village is especially beautiful this spring. The Heritage Herb Gardens are blooming gloriously all along the walkways. The Ozark Folk Center Crafts people have spent the winter creating lots of new treasures. Many of them have a touch of cabin fever and they are so looking forward to talking with all of you when you come to visit during the Open House.
You’ll see many of old familiar faces among the crafts people and a few new ones. Take time to dip a candle, see the automatic broom in the Broom Shop and get your Free Ticket in the Print Shop.
If your stomach starts to growl while you’re visiting, grab a sandwich at the Smokehouse Snackbar or cross the street for a nice sit down meal at the Skillet Restaurant.
There is plenty of parking at the Ozark Folk Center.

Spinning and Weaving
Music & More
