The one day festival will have more festive atmosphere with something for the whole family. The one day festival beginning at 8:30 am and running till 9 pm.
There are many new additions to this year’s festival. One of the biggest additions makes the event fun for the whole family. The festival features an art activities area designed to entertain small children and young teens. Over 200 sq ft of face painting, balloon tying, games and activities all designed around an “art theme”. There will be experienced volunteers to guide your children through a series of art activities all made possible by local non-profit organizations and community donations. There is something for everyone in your family or group of friends.
Dozens of Southwest Missouri’s finest eateries will be on hand for sampling; including Italian, Mexican, European, Asian and down home American cuisine, artisan chocolates and cheeses; pizza, burgers, and so much more. Don’t forget to check out the Ozark bottled soda pop, gourmet coffees, and fine chocolates.
The adults will still have the opportunity to sample and purchase by the glass some of Missouri’s finest wineries like Linwedel Winery, Le Bourgeois Winery, Bear Creek Wine Company, Crown Valley Winery, and one of Missouri’s most award winning wineries Stone Hill Winery.
