State of the Ozarks Fest

State of the Ozarks Fest

State of the Ozarks has scheduled the fifth annual State of the Ozarks Fest for 10AM to 6PM, Saturday, September 18, in downtown Hollister.

The one-day street festival celebrates contemporary and traditional Ozarks culture as well as showcases regional artisans, craftsmen, businesses and entertainment. State of the Ozarks Fest spans historic Downing Street.

“It’s hard to believe this is already our fifth festival,” says Joshua Heston, editor-in-chief of State of the Ozarks online magazine and event creator. “The festival is different from many other Ozarks events. We actively celebrate both creativity and community. It can be a very inspiring and positive experience for attendees and participants alike.”

State of the Ozarks Fest ’21 has already scheduled the Order of the Red Boar (medieval combat), Candy Paradise Idols (anime dance group), Silver Anvil Metalcraft (Forged in Fire competitor demonstrations), blacksmith Kirk Lewis, Ozarks vocalist Luke Acker, and frontier displays by 19th century re-enactors Brent and Becky Paschall.
