OZARK FOLK FESTIVAL
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.

  • Arkansas Repertory Theatre to suspend operations immediately

    “The inability to reach its projected goals for charitable giving and ticket sales, and the change in the theatre landscape in Little Rock have created a perfect financial storm for The Rep,” Board Chair Brian Bush said. “The Rep’s ticket sales have been on a downhill slope for several years. Our community is on the verge of losing an amazing arts organization and tremendous asset to our city. Closing The Rep will have a devastating impact on the redevelopment of Main Street and the creative corridor.”
