Eureka Springs is the place to be mid-January. I know, it sounds nuts, but seriously – the Ozark Mountain Music Festival is SO MUCH FUN! And I don’t use all caps lightly!
Step ten feet from the Basin Park Hotel and it’s chilly and quiet, but that’s actually kind of a pleasant environment to explore the town in. There are still walking tours going on, shops open, restaurants, and bars too. Inside the hotel, it’s like the world comes alive with people milling about on every floor. Everyone’s in that friendly festival mode, willing to let you do your thing or become your new best friend.
So, if you’re the goes-to-every-festival type, you’ve got to look at OzMoMuFest as the first festival of the year. Festival season no more, we get it going in January in E.S.! Bring your hoop, your flow-y hair or winter beard, and the will to dance to some good-ass music. If instead, you’re an old person or a laid back or responsible human being or any combination of those – this festival’s for you too! It’s in a hotel, so you don’t have to camp or drive or even walk more than a few feet to your bed that gets made for you by housekeeping every morning, I mean – it’s like.. what would the word for festival glamping be for this?? It’s just so nice! The Basin Park Hotel is so cool! Add amazingly talented bands to their two biggest venue rooms and you’re in for the best weekend you could imagine – especially in such drab weather!
Check out my other recent posts on lorrabeth.com for more details on the amazing bands that played this year’s second annual OzMoMuFest and make plans to be there next year! I’ll see you on the dance floor!
I didn’t get paid for any of my posts about the Ozark Mountain Music Festival, and all opinions are my own.
