65th ANNUAL OZARK FOLK FESTIVAL
Various times, venues and cover charges in Eureka Springs.

For the folk fan, this annual weeklong shindig is a must-do, and this year's lineup keeps that tradition rolling. It got started Monday and continues through Saturday.

On Wednesday, the Basin Park Hotel hosts this year's Barefoot Ball, with a "Hillbilly Halloween" theme and music from old-time country and bluegrass trio The Carper Family ($10 adv., $15 door).

On Thursday, there'll be a screening of "Deliverance" at the Carnegie Library Annex, followed by a Q&A with actor and musician Ronny Cox, who starred in the classic film (free, donations accepted).

Friday boasts a performance at The Auditorium from longtime folk duo Trout Fishing in America, with openers Karen Mal and Jack Williams ($20 adv., $25 door).

Saturday has a full lineup, with a singer/songwriter contest at 11 a.m. at Basin Spring Park followed by a free performance from Trout Fishing in America at 1 p.m. and a parade through downtown starting at 2 p.m. That night, Cox will perform at The Auditorium with Mal and Radoslav Lorkovic, Williams and Michael Cockram ($25 adv., $30 door).
