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 …

Tea-Cup and Art Fan Auction

teacupSaturday, August 6, 6:00pm – 8:00pm

Join us for a fun evening of Fund-Raising for Folkways!

Come and buy auction tickets, 5 for a $1, put them in the “tea-cup” in front of some cool prizes and we just might draw your ticket and You then WIN that prize. (Hence the name, “teacup auction”!) All kinds of cool prizes, art, clothing, crafts, etc. We will also be auctioning off “art fans!” because man, is it hot in August!

Come out, have fun, and support Ozark Folkways,”The Little Folk-Center that Could!”
