Welcome to Ozark Folkways


Located in historic (and historically funky!) Winslow, Ozark Folkways is where the art of today meets the craft traditions of generations past; and music, food, fun and family reach across generations to bring people together.

Apart from the everyday offerings of art and crafts, we have a number of special events coming up over the next few months. There’s bound to be something for you …

Thank you!

bumper01The 2014 Ozark Folkways Holiday Open House was an amazing success.

We filled our building up with great people, and filled our people up with incredible chili, tamales, latkes, cookies, cheese, and other goodies. The Winslow Drum Circle and Dan Dean entertained us; the instructors in the jewelry class, the cookie decorating class, the sewing demonstration, the artisan cheese discussion, the basket class, and the tamale making class all enlightened us; and the response from the community showed us how important a place Ozark Folkways has here in Northwest Arkansas.

This was a wonderful and eventful year for Folkways, and 2015 is on track to be even better. Come visit, keep an eye on this site for events and classes, and — if you can — help us out with your tax-deductible dollars. You can donate via the link on the right of this page, or better yet, become a continuing supporter.

Ozark Folkways is here for you, and it’s people like you who make Ozark Folkways the special place that it is.
