WE ALL NEED times to get out of our daily routine and experience something fresh. StateoftheOzarks creates timeless events you’ll cherish for a lifetime. Join the community in fun, see the creativity of the region, and even showcase your own work.

REGULAR ARTISTIC EXPRESSION is necessary for the well-being of communities and individuals. First Friday Art Walk is a monthly event series in which our StateoftheOzarks member artisans showcase their creativity to the larger Ozarks community.

First Friday Art Walk is hosted in downtown Hollister, Missouri, May through November. MORE HERE

IN A TIME repressed emotions and heavy social expectation, we are rarely provided healthy avenues of personal expression.

Writers Artists Night is an opportunity for people to exercise their creativity in collaboration with each other as a form of self-expression.

“Soul-baring,” “profound,” “cathartic,” and “healing” are just some of the words used to describe StateoftheOzarks’ longest-running art event. MORE HERE

FOR CENTURIES, HARVEST festivals were a time dedicated to getting out of the routines of daily life and celebrating the successes of the year. In a day and age far-removed from the rhythm of the land, it is more important than ever that we do not lose this tradition, becoming overwhelmed by the monotony of everyday life.

StateoftheOzarks Fest is a one-day celebration bringing community together in a heightened street fair filled to the brim with food, art, craftsmanship, and uproarious fun, all tied to the history and culture of our land. MORE HERE | FESTIVAL APPLICATION |
