Ozark Folk Center State Park in Mountain View Schedules Opening Day April 16

After experiencing a delayed opening in 2020, the Ozark Folk Center State Park announced it will open during the Arkansas Folk Festival on April 16th and 17th within current Arkansas Department of Health guidelines.

The state park’s 20 shops in the Craft Village, Gift Shop, and gardens will open during the festival and remain open Tues.-Sat. from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. through the fall. Visiting guests can expect to find skilled artisans at work making, selling, and demonstrating handmade crafts in the Village and a tapestry of flowers, native plants, and herbs for cooking and healing in the Heritage Herb Garden.

The Skillet Restaurant will also open the week of Arkansas Folk Festival and resume serving southern style entrees and desserts. The Cabins at Dry Creek serve guests year round.
