Baby it’s cold outside, so warm up indoors with some feel-good music at the new Ozark Mountain Music Festival in the Basin Park Hotel in Eureka Springs on Jan. 24-26.
The festival focuses on bluegrass and Indie folk music with live music playing on multiple stages. The historic hotel plans to provide an atmosphere where attendees can enjoy eating, drinking and dancing in one central location with all-access passes and overnight packages.
Jack Moyer, manager of the Basin Park since 1996 touts the event as the next great festival of Eureka Springs. “The Basin Park Hotel has always been at the edge of all great music startups from the Eureka Springs Blues Festival, New Year’s Eve with Jimmy Thackery, Eureka Springs Mardi Gras, The Cate Brothers, Chris Duarte, or when the ‘The Band’ reunited to play a 10-year reunion show in the Barefoot Ballroom” he explained. “We are excited to host this ‘next great thing’ with the start of the Ozark Mountain Music Festival, which we expect will be an annual event for many years to come.”
The Ozark Mountain Music Festival begins at 6 p.m. Friday, Jan. 24 and continues with at least 11 acts until the Bloody Mary Morning Show on Sunday, Jan. 26.
Room bundles for two attendees include two-nights lodging and two all access passes begin at $275. Festival All Access Passes are $45. For more information or online room sales, visit www.EurekaSpringsOnline.com.
