One of our most ambitious events.

Come celebrate Old Time music and the distinctive culture of the Ozarks Highlands.  Held early in June each year in West Plains, Missouri.  Festival site reaches from Historic Court Square down East Main to the West Plains Civic Center grounds. This is the signature event for the City of West Plains, Missouri

2019 Festival dates are – May 31 and June 1

 Information on the festival is posted here.

Three ideas are central to the festival:

  • Acknowledgement of the many able local performers

  • The need to save these expressive traditions

  • Maintaining a focus of authenticity

Old-Time Music will be performed for two full days, from our main stage, featuring outstanding local and regional artists representing the musical traditions of the Ozarks.
