2014 Festival Chief Joe Auffert

The Old-Time Music, Ozarks Heritage Festival in downtown West Plains, Mo., will celebrate Friday and Saturday, June 2 and 3, 2023. The annual event in downtown West Plains, Mo., celebrates Ozarks music and culture. Festival hours are 10 a.m. – 8 p.m.  Admission to all festival events is free.

Organizers come from many different areas of the community, volunteering their time to assure a successful event, and the festival committee spends many hours over the year preparing for it.  Volunteers are needed for the information booth (2-hour shifts); helping with set-up on Thursday evening and Friday morning; maintaining the entrance gate for artists on the north side of the Civic Center; as shuttle drivers around the grounds (2 hour shifts, must be 21 or older); and helping with simple surveys.

Those interested in helping in any way should contact volunteer coordinator Stacey Tune <volunteer@westplainsarts.org>, 949-887-4185, or email the West Plains Council on the Arts at info@westplainsarts.org

Volunteers from previous years are encouraged to call or e-mail to confirm they will be participating again this year, organizers said. Volunteer sign-up form available here.

The Old-Time Music, Ozark Heritage Festival is the signature event for West Plains.  The festival seeks to celebrate, preserve, pass on and nurture an appreciation of the old-time music and folk life traditions distinctive to the Ozark Highlands.
