Come celebrate Old Time music and the distinctive culture of the Ozarks Highlands. Held the first Friday/Saturday in June each year in West Plains, Missouri. Festival site reaches from the West Plains Civic Center grounds and along East Main St..
Three ideas are central to the festival:
Acknowledgement of the many able local performers
The need to save these expressive traditions
Maintaining a focus of authenticity
Old-Time Music will be performed for two days, from our two stages, featuring outstanding local and regional artists representing the musical traditions of the Ozarks. Many of our artists from over the years will be appearing at this 25th reunion event.
