Ozark Mountain Music Festival is a winter event, so held indoors, but is otherwise just like a top-notch, multi-band, outdoor music event. One of the festival’s highlights is its lack of a backstage. Both bands and the audience share the same space, creating a warm intimacy that sets this festival apart.

OzMoMu 2024 begins Thursday night, January 18th. Don’t miss the Late-Night Jam at nearby Chelsea’s Corner Cafe & Bar on both Friday and Saturday nights.

The festival venue, the 1905 Basin Park Hotel, sits in the heart of Eureka Springs, surrounded by dining and shopping options, all within easy walking distance. Better yet, downtown Eureka Springs is less than a half hour’s drive from your Beaver Lake accommodations at Sugar Ridge Resort.
