Cowboy Festival includes three memorable shows at the Ozark Highlands Theater on Friday and Saturday featuring performances by Dom Flemons of the Carolina Chocolate Drops, cowboy songster and poet Andy Hedges, Pipp Gillette, Farmer & Adele, and a very special tribute to legendary musician Glenn Ohrlin by local veteran folksinger, and the host of Ozark Highlands Radio, Dave Smith.To purchase your all-access tickets, or see the festival schedule, for Cowboy Music & Arts Festival, visit OzarkFolkCenter.Ticketleap.com.

The Ozark Folk Center State Park is home to dozens of demonstrating artists and 20 artisan shops in the park's nationally renowned Craft Village which will be open for you to explore and shop throughout the weekend. During your visit, stop by the upper level of the Village to see a concert at the Blacksmith Stage featuring traditional American songs and Southern Mountain music performed by the region's finest folk musicians.
If immersing yourself in nature is more your style, set aside time to discover the Heritage Herb Garden, located throughout the Craft Village, where pass-along plants, flowers, and herbs for healing will be on display during the summertime. For families with children, be sure to visit by the park's animal-powered picnic swing for a ride with Whiskey (or Tango) the Donkey and experience the historic Shannon Cabin and One-room Schoolhouse to imagine pioneer life in the Ozarks.
