Experience Arkansas with Ozark Heritage Crafts
The Ozark Folk Center Crafts Village has over 21 artisans demonstrating Ozark Heritage crafts and the everyday skills used by Ozark Mountain people in the 19th and early 20th centuries. These skills have become Arkansas heritage crafts - basket weaving, broom making, blacksmithing, pottery making, knife making, weaving, quilting, wood carving, yarn spinning, soap making, dress making, herb gardening, coopering, doll making, candle making, wood turning, and more. Between April and November, the Ozark Folk Center State Park offers visitors a chance to experience the living tradition of Ozark craftsmanship and visit with the people who make their living with these crafts.
The Village is open from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on days of operation. Please check our Ozark events for more information on special craft events and festivals throughout our season. Ozark Folk School in March and July also provides you with the opportunity to learn broom making, drawing, candle making or any of the other crafts demonstrated in the Crafts Village from a talented instructor, in a relaxed, non-competitive environment. Design Your Own Workshops are also available at a time that works into your schedule.
Contact the park for details: 870-269-3851. Come visit us, meet the friendly people, enjoy the beautiful scenery, and you'll know why we treasure our Ozark Mountains.
