There’s always something going on in Mountain View Arkansas, the Folk Music Capitol of the World, but the highlights are activities at the Ozark Folk Center, and Blanchard Springs Caverns; well all that live music every Saturday night at the courthouse square is pretty special!
“October 1 – 2, 2010
This Herb Harvest Fall Festival marks the beginning of a sojourn around the Mediterranean Sea. This year we begin in The Cradle of Western Civilization, with a focus on Greece and Turkey. We will travel clockwise around the shore during the next several fall herb events in order to explore how Mediterranean herbs affected our ancestors and continue to enhance our lives in the present day. Applying this knowledge to the Ozark region, we will bring experts to speak on herbal topics related to agriculture, cuisine, culture, gardening, medicine, textiles and trade.”

Hope to see you all there!
Amazingly enough, I don’t seem to have a single photo of the Ozark Folk center. You can bet I will remedy that fairly soon!
