2014 Festival Chief Joe Auffert

The Old-Time Music, Ozarks Heritage Festival in downtown West Plains, Mo., will celebrate Friday and Saturday, June 7 and 8, 2024. The annual event in downtown West Plains, Mo., celebrates Ozarks music and culture. Festival hours are 10 a.m. – 9 p.m.  Admission to all festival events is free.

Volunteers come from many different areas of the community, donating 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 booths and helping with simple surveys (2-hour shifts); as shuttle drivers around the grounds (4-hour shifts, must be 21 or older); helping with set-up on Thursday evening and Friday morning, or tear-down on Saturday evening.

Volunteers from previous years are encouraged to call or email to confirm they will be participating again this year, organizers said.

Those interested in helping in any way should contact volunteer coordinator Stacey Tune volunteer@westplainsarts.org, 949-887-4185, or sign-up online via the link below. Email the form after completion to volunteer@westplainsarts.org

Volunteer sign-up form available here.
