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

The 2024 Old-Time Music, Ozarks Heritage will be held Friday and Saturday, June 7 and 8, 10 a.m. – 9 p.m.

 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 the outside stage and theater stage, featuring outstanding local and regional artists representing the musical traditions of the Ozarks.
