Homegrown, Homemade Festival brings music, merchandise, shoppers

Dora resident Chelsea Tolton and her 4-year-old daughter Eliza were dressed in their best spring gear during Saturday’s Ozark County Homegrown and Homemade Festival on the Gainesville square. Vendors, musicians and shoppers enjoyed sharing the day together.

Historium volunteer Sandra Stone and her two-week-old Nubian goat Archie were popular with the visitors – especially the youngest ones – who stopped by the Historium’s booth at the festival.

The fourth annual Ozark County Homegrown and Homemade Festival brought vendors, shoppers and music to the west side of the Gainesville square Saturday. A wide variety of Ozark County goods were offered for purchase, including birdhouses and birdfeeders, watercolors, honey, fresh greens, plants, wooden spoons, sorghum, popcorn, furniture, fudge, nut butters, rope sandals, jewelry and hand-woven tapestries as well as repurposed furniture and decorative items. Local bands Lilly Fear, Kingdom’s Call, Hollow Threat, Ole Rubber Legs and Creek Stink provided live entertainment throughout the day. More photos are posted on the Ozark County Times Facebook page.
