For the fourth consecutive year, Buffalo National River will host a free concert by National Park Radio on Saturday, June 15, at Steel Creek Campground. National Park Radio, a modern folk band from Harrison, is widely known for its hopeful, heartfelt lyrics with themes about life, love, and difficult choices, all while echoing the enduring beauty of the band’s deep-seated roots in the Ozark Mountains.

“This is a highly popular event among our local communities and park visitors alike. Last year’s concert brought out almost 1,300 people, many of whom spent the weekend in the area and supported local businesses while they were here. This event has proven year after year to cultivate stewardship and appreciation for the Buffalo River and the Ozarks through National Park Radio’s poignant lyrics, and it has also served as a great boost for the local economy,” Superintendent Mark Foust said.

Music will begin at 6 p.m. near the boat launch at Steel Creek Campground. Free parking is available on-site, but space fills quickly due to the popularity of this annual event. National Park Service officials advise concert-goers to carpool if possible in order to minimize traffic and associated resource impacts.

This annual event is sponsored by the Buffalo National River Partners, a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to the promotion, appreciation, preservation and protection of America’s first national river.
