Various times. Eureka Springs. Free-$15.

Back for its 64th year, the original Ozark Folk Festival is taking hold of Arkansas's quirkiest, coolest small town with up-and-coming and well-established musical acts from around the region playing in various venues around town.

The headliners are, per usual, a who's who of bluegrass — Big Smith (Friday) and Still on the Hill, Split Lip Rayfield and 3 Penny Acre (Saturday) — with their unique folk and country sounds that keep them swimming against the mainstream.

On Friday night is the festival's oldest tradition, the Barefoot Ball, which is as unpretentious as it sounds (although, hillbillies be warned, shoes are required for entrance). The Folk Festival Parade, with a "Eureka through the Years" theme, rolls through Saturday for the grand finale.
