50TH ANNUAL ARKANSAS FOLK FESTIVAL
6 p.m. Downtown Mountain View and Ozark Folk Center. Free.

The Arkansas Folk Festival isn't your typical music fest, with giant stages and $9 Bud Lights and merch booths and endless rows of port-a-potties. It's a much more down-to-earth affair, with impromptu performances taking place at venues all over Mountain View.

Of course, there will be some scheduled events, including a young musicians concert Thursday night, a fiddlers showcase at 2 p.m. and a talent show at 5 p.m. on Friday, a parade downtown at 10 a.m. and a matinee program at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Old Gym.

Throughout, there will be tons of arts and crafts demonstrations at the Ozark Folk Center state park, which will be offering shuttles to and from downtown on Friday and Saturday. The artisans market will feature the handiwork of scores of craftspeople.
