++++++Pioneer Heritage Festival of the Ozarks++++++

To all our friends and supporters:

The pioneers were a tough bunch, and so are we!  Rest assured, despite adversity, that we’re planning for another great Pioneer Heritage Festival on Friday October 2, and Saturday October 3, 2020 in Ava, Missouri.  We’ll be updating here regularly with details for exhibitors and festival goers as we work to make it happen once more.

We need volunteers and heritage exhibitors!

We take everyone’s safety seriously, and will accommodate the concerns of volunteers and others who wish to participate.   Please call us at (417) 746-4006 if you can give some time or want to know what you can do to help, or email heritage417@gmail.com.


Our festival celebrates Ozarks culture with heritage ARTISANS, great live MUSIC, historical EXHIBITS, FOOD and lots of fun ACTIVITIES!
