State of the Ozarks Fest

On September 16th (from 10AM to 7PM) in ol’ Historic downtown Hollister, Missouri, there will be a gathering of some of the Ozarks’ best and most hardworking craftsmen, dancers, musicians and townsfolk these historic hills have to offer.  

State of the Ozarks (SOTO) — 110 years after Shepherd of the Hills was published — invites all folks who come to our community to know and experience what first brought people to the Ozark Mountains we love.  Come spend a day with us — a day full of fun, skits, crafts, kids’ activities and much more. There will be  dancers, history buffs….also REALLY buff guys lifting stuff, beard competitions, beer tasting, FOOD, Yoga, Cosplay…and MORE!  Visit their website for complete details including a schedule of events.  — Ethen “Puck” DeMarce
