Arkansas Folk Festival

It is with a heavy heart that the Mountain View Area Chamber of Commerce must announce the cancellation of Arkansas Folk Festival, 2020.

Due to Covid-19, we feel that it is necessary to protect the health of our citizens by maintaining social distancing and by following the current directives given by our Governor.

We are aware that there are tentative measures to reopen commerce in early May, but that will not include large festivals and gatherings.

We appreciate our local businesses and do realize the financial impact that this will have. We are working hard to prepare and implement recovery plans for our members and our community.

Thank you for your continued support though this trying time.


**For 2020 vendor applications – please contact Nikki at**
