In the Arkansas Ozarks near the town of Mountain View, you can experience the music, dance, crafts, and lore that have been passed from generation to generation since settlers first called these beautiful hills home at the Ozark Folk Center. This unique state park is one of America’s cultural treasures, a center dedicated to preserving and promoting the Ozark Mountain heritage. Building upon the skills of the Ozark people, the Ozark Folk Center continues its mission of perpetuation of Ozark traditions. The Folk Center conducts an active apprentice program, offers workshops throughout its operating season, holds over a dozen Elderhostel programs each year, and hosts an annual Ozark Folk School.
