The Craft Village at the Ozark Folk Center State Park is especially beautiful on summer evenings. On July 5, from 7:00 to 10:00 p.m. the crafts people of the Village will be opening their shops to share a special evening with you. This is a unique chance to have a quiet visit with a working craftsman. Talk with our working crafters about how they learned their skills and where they find their inspiration. Learn about their tools and their workshops. Buy unique handcrafted items directly from the folks who are making them. There’s nothing quite like a summer evening in the park.
You can start your visit in the Homespun Gift Shop where many Arkansas craftspeople have consigned their crafts for sale. The Village crafters will be creating items, demonstrating their wood turning and carving; spinning and weaving; jewelry making; soap making; printing; coppersmithing; lampwork glass beadmaking; and more. Many shops will have special treats for their evening visitors. Admission to the Craft Village is free for this evening event.
The Ozark Folk Center State Park is located at 1032 Park Avenue in Mountain View. Follow the signs to the Ozark Folk Center State Park, less than a mile from the Courthouse Square in downtown Mountain View.

Tickets go on sale at 6:00 p.m. in the box office. You can visit the Craft Village during intermission or after the music for a truly wonderful evening.
