Organizers of the 49th Annual Arkansas Folk Festival in Mountain View invite visitors to be “In Tune with the Ozarks” April 15-17, when traditional music and handmade crafts take center stage in a celebration of local heritage.

The Ozark Folk Center state park kicks off its season offering free admission to the craft grounds Friday through Sunday, and free shuttle rides will be offered between the park and downtown both Friday and Saturday. Visitors may park at the Folk Center and avoid trying to park in limited space in the downtown area.

The Stone County Saddle Club will sponsor rodeos at 2 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday at the fairgrounds.

Other activities available in the area include tours of Blanchard Springs Caverns, mountain biking, camping and hiking in the Ozark National Forest, and fishing on White River.

The Arkansas Folk Festival is sponsored by the Mountain View Area Chamber of Commerce.
