SHRED Eureka Springs

————————————————————————————————————–

Announcing “SHRED Eureka Springs”:  A Spring Food, Wine & Adventure Festival

(Eureka Springs, Arkansas) – Shred is not only a way to mountain bike but also an attitude of appreciating the good things in life.  This spring, the 1905 Basin Park Hotel and its partners present “SHRED Eureka Springs”, a nine-day festival, March 27 thru April 4, in this exciting Arkansas Ozark village with SHRED being an acronym for SIP HIKE RIDE EAT DANCE.Dance Party Eureka Springs

It all gets underway Friday evening of weekend one with The Mighty Pines jamming at the Kickoff DANCE Party in Basin Spring Park located in the center of Eureka Springs Entertainment District.  This party, benefiting the Buffalo River conservation efforts, will feature the music of the Ozark Mountain Music Festival (OzMoMu) and will run from 6 o’clock until 8.  Also happening that evening, just steps from the park, is the performance of noted Southern Rock singer/songwriter Charlie Daniels in The Aud, the historic municipal auditorium.

Sip Eureka Springs

This first weekend continues on Saturday with a SIP: a welcoming wine tasting produced in concert with the Basin Park Hotel’s “Chef’s Table”.  This event features an opportunity to enjoy up to 30 wines expertly selected by Central Distributors, and Southern Glazers Wine & Spirits.  The award-winning wines of the Ozark area will be presented by Keels Creek Winery and Post Familie Winery.  Each table will be staffed with an expert to share the wine. The music of Eureka Swings will accompany the event. SIP also offers a VIP option with a unique opportunity to enjoy an exclusive tasting from the Roenigk Wine Cellar Reserves.

Chef Showcase

That next day, Sunday SHRED activities move to the Crescent Hotel.  The East Lawn will be the site for an EAT event: the Sunday Chef Showcase Brunch featuring al fresco seating in the manicured garden of this historic mountaintop spa resort.  Five guest chefs will present a tasty brunch. Also included is a Bloody Mary bar featuring locally sourced Bloody Mary Mundi Sauce ensuring a zesty flavoring for this popular brunch beverage.   Music of the Honey Collective will fill the air.  The brunch will be available for $29.95 with discounts available for overnight guests.

Hike Eureka Springs

SHRED activities through the week will involve hiking, biking and community.  The mornings of Monday through Thursday get underway at the downtown Eureka Springs Coffee House with a Wake-up/Meet-up event scheduled daily at 9 a.m.  During the day, each day has a community event that begins at 10 a.m. and guided by either CC Riders or Outdoor Adventures for Women.  Each event is just a little bit different from the rest, but each is a whole lot exciting.  Monday features a guided mountain biking RIDE at Lake Leatherwood City Park and an evening gathering at the Eureka Springs Brewery for a SIP of local craft beers.  Tuesday at 10 a.m. attendees will meet up at the coffeehouse to HIKE to and around Black Bass Lake gathering afterwards to hatchet throw at the Crescent’s Frisco Sporting Club and meet up for tap takeover that night in the SkyBar Gourmet Pizza.  Wednesday sees another RIDE event as attendees traverse over the variety of Great Passion Play mountain biking trails.  Later, SIP takes the spotlight at the scheduled community meet up at Brews.  Thursday is a big day for HIKE: an exploration to the Buffalo River National Park Region and Sweden Creek Falls, one of Arkansas’ tallest waterfalls.   Later that day, attendees will enjoy some live music and a whisky SIP in Jack Rabbett’s Whisky Bar.Center Street Party

SHRED’s second weekend sees the RIDE ramp up.  On Friday from 4 to 8 p.m. is the Center Street Bike Party. Guests can roam up and down Eureka Springs’ Entertainment District between Jack Rabbett’s and Chelsea’s Corner Bar. Center Street will be closed for Lone Star Action Sports who, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m., will stage a jaw-dropping, free to the public, stunt performance featuring trick mountain bikers and extreme skateboarders.   The street party continues with live music from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. will come from the Food Truck Festival at the corner of Center and East Mountain streets.  The street party leaves time that evening for those wanting to attend the performance of Grammy Award-winning rock band America in The Aud.  Saturday is SHRED’s RIDE pièce de résistance.  Mountain bikers will enjoy free shuttles at Eureka Springs Mountain as you shred the downhill.  The new Lake Leatherwood Downhill, designed by Rock Solid, has already gained national notoriety as a signature piece of the Oz Trails System.

Those who will be experiencing the “SHRED Eureka Springs” festival form a new community of friends: those who love the outdoors and all the activities of Eureka Springs region.  As a welcome and as a thank you, festival attendees in this inaugural year are being offered a “Community of Friends” special lodging promotional rate.  Both, the 1886 Crescent Hotel & Spa and the 1905 Basin Park Hotel are featuring a promotional rate of $55 per night any day Sunday through Thursday during festival week.

Pardon our Mess

basin park hotel

“Pardon our mess while we are remodeling to serve you better” is the message the 1905 Basin Park Hotel wants to get out to the citizens of and visitors to Eureka Springs during the next few weeks. A major renovation is now underway in a property that has become known as “the people’s hotel”.

“Elise (Roenigk) and I are very excited about what we are doing at our downtown property,” stated hotel Executive Vice President and General Manager Jack V. Moyer. “Not only are we doing an update in nine of our guest rooms but we are also adding a nuance that guests and especially locals are going to fall in love with.”

The nuance is the transition of the Lucky 7 Rooftop Billiards into Jack Rabbett’s Whisky Bar. This new bar will be located in what is now the Ozark Room, next door to the Balcony Restaurant, and will include the professional-style pool tables now featured upstairs in Lucky 7, moved downstairs to the new location. Other planned accoutrements for Jack Rabbett’s will be 3 big screen television sets, living room style seating, in addition to normal around-the-bar stools.

“We have had such success with the Basin Park Hotel since the Roenigks purchased it in 1997, this is our gift back to the loyal guests who return year after year to enjoy our hotel and the entire surrounding downtown Eureka Springs shopping, entertainment and FUN district,” added Moyer.

The renovation project for rooms and bar is scheduled to be completed by late February. Moyer noted that he hotel and the Balcony Restaurant will be open for business during the construction period.

We appreciate the patience of both our guests and our fellow businesses as we re-invest in Downtown Eureka Springs.

Ozark Mountain Music Festival 2020

Hello Music lovers! My favorite month is here! In three short weeks we will be dancing to the foot stomping tunes of our new and old favorite bluegrass, America roots music. January 16th-19th will be another Oz Production for the books!

The Ozark Mountain Music Festival Weekend will kick off with local’s night on Thursday, January 16th with regional favorites Brian Martin and Arkansauce– “a genre-hopping, four piece string band from northwest Arkansas, bending the rules and blurring the lines between bluegrass, newgrass, folk, americana, country, blues, and funk.” Local’s night cost just $10! Since Arkansauce rocked the main stage in 2017 they continue to become more energetic and fun with the best sing along songs!

At 6PM on Friday the doors will open again to host Brad Fielder from Tulsa, OK. New to our stage we are excited to hear the traditional folk music of songsters from the 20th century with a mix of Brad’s originals. Local favorites, Red Oak Ruse is up next on the main stage and we cannot wait to dance to their made genre Ozarkana! To keep Friday night rolling we will be bringing in our headliners Wood & Wire! As their newest album was Grammy nominated for “best in bluegrass” we know we are in for a treat!

After Wood and Wire comes to a close the diehard dancers and music lovers head to our sister stage at Chelsea’s Corner bar where they will host an open jam with (hopefully) all bands included like years past. Get some rest because we are not even to Saturday yet…

Saturday is packed full with even more music than Thursday and Friday combined. Skye Pollard (Folk Festival Singer Songwriter winner), Chucky Waggs, The Damn Neighbors, The Haymakers, The Hillbenders AND Dirtfoot, all in ONE day! We will start the day on the intimate stage on the first floor with the first 3 bands. Been to OzMoMu in the past? Just wait until you see what we have up our sleeves to make this an even better experience for bands and attendees! At 6PM we will make our way to the Main stage to hang out with our vendors, live artist, grab more drinks and continue dancing the night away.


Coming in from Witchita, KS we are thrilled to add the folk, country, bluegrass band to the lineup- The Hillbenders! This 5 piece band packed full of string instruments and beautiful vocals is a must see.

“The HillBenders have firmly established their presence as one of the most energetic and engaging progressive acoustic bands on the scene and they continue to wow audiences from stages around the country and around the world.”

DirtFoot

So much could be said about Dirtfoot in their “10 yearlong span of spreading infectious grooves and their unique Gypsy Punk Country Grumble Boogie sound. The crowds come to take part in the fun and chaos, hollering to all the calls and responses, shaking their beancans, and getting down with the infectious grooves.”

Our sister stage at Chelsea’s corner bar will jamming on Saturday night again as they host the second round of the open jam including but not limited to all the bands on the line up! Some of the most incredible music I have seen has happened at this event, on this stage!

We will round out the weekend with Brick Fields Sunday at noon on our intimate stage. The Basin Park Hotel will be offering a huge Bloody Mary Bar and Brick Fields will be soothing us all with their blues vibes.

Have we sold you on the weekend yet?! Just in case, it is worth mentioning that this festival has historically been a winter weekend to help cure the festival blues in the cold months. Not only do you get to hang closing with your new friends but you also get to chill with the bands for there is no back stage area. Tickets are $55 all access or single day passes are available too. Want a room on site…yes you do!

Christmas in the Heart of Downtown Eureka Springs

There is no better place to use as the center of your Downtown Eureka Springs Christmas weekend celebrations than the 1905 Basin Park Hotel, 12 Spring Street, adjacent to Basin Spring Park.  You will realize that when you take one step out of their front door and you are immersed in holiday lights, decorations, and an atmosphere that surrounds you with the spirit of the season.  And, here are a few more yuletide reasons why:

Annual Christmas Parade of Lights – Of all the parades that travel through downtown, this parade is the favorite of visitors and residents alike.  Floats, bands, smiling faces throwing candy and, of course, a chance to catch a glimpse of Ol’ Saint Nick… and the best place to see all of this is in front of the hotel.  Many like to arrive early for light snack in the hotel’s Balcony Restaurant or dropping in after Santa has gone by to sip on a cup of hot chocolate or an adult beverage while looking out over the downtown lights.

Shopping for Unique Gifts – One of the best holiday celebrations is going from store to store in downtown to pick out that perfect gift… a unique gift, the kind you won’t find in one of those chain stores.  A good starting point and a “we’ll meet you back here afterwards” point is the Basin Park Hotel.  A quick meal “afterwards” on The Balcony is a great place for your gang to compare all the treasures you purchased.

Entertainment in The Aud – The Eureka Springs City Auditorium (The Aud) is only one block from the 1905 Basin Park Hotel… and The Aud has numerous concerts and events during the Christmas season:  John Two Hawks Christmas Concert, December 7; Northwest Arkansas Ballet Theatre, December 13; Ozarks Chorale Christmas Concert, December 14; “Home For The Holidays” Concert, December 20; and “Grady Nichols Christmas”, December 21.   If you are traveling from out of town for a performance at The Aud, the Basin Park is the place to stay since it is close and only a casual walk away.  Locals will meet at the hotel for a cocktail before and after a performance to make the special holiday evening even more special.

Night of MerryMaking – On Saturday, December 14 beginning at 4 p.m. is “The Night of MerryMaking”, a festive, uproarious and experiential holiday event that starts in Basin Spring Park and includes…  what seems to be 1,000 Santas blanketing the downtown streets; plus Spring Street full of “Living Windows”, three-dimensional canvases with live actors as they pose in storefront tableaux replicating artwork from Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art;  mömandpöp singing; snow falling; and sidewalk Christmas carolers.

Food & Wine – The weeks surrounding the holidays also make up a great time to gather with those close to you to have a casual lunch or dinner, sip your favorite wine or craft beer, or simply enjoy each other’s company.  Whether you choose the 1905 Basin Park Hotel’s Balcony Restaurant & Bar, the casual atmosphere of their Lucky 7 Rooftop Lounge, or any one of the other 21 bars and bistros in walking distance from the hotel (you are in the center of the Eureka Springs Entertainment District, you know), either place is a fun and delightful get-together spot for kicking back and sharing holiday cheer with friends and family.

OzMoMu Lineup 2020

Ozark Mountain Music Festival 2020

 Ozark Mountain Music Festival (OzMoMu) celebrates its 7th year January 16-19th

 (EUREKA SPRINGS, ARKANSAS) — The 2020 Ozark Mountain Music Festival, better known as OzMoMu, will return January 16-20 to Downtown Eureka Springs.  The winter festival, best known for its upbeat and infectious Americana Roots music and laid back vibe is held inside at the Basin Park Hotel often spilling outdoors into the Eureka Springs Entertainment District. Nightly headliners for this year’s event include Arkansauce (Thursday), Wood & Wire (Friday) and both The Hillbenders and Dirtfoot (Saturday).

Thursday January 16, 2020

The Thursday Kickoff show, starting at 8PM with Brian Martin continues at 10 with a headliner very familiar to the area.  Arkansauce is a genre-hopping, four piece string band from Northwest Arkansas, bending the rules and blurring the lines between bluegrass, newgrass, folk, americana, country, blues, and funk. With a loyal following growing every day in the Natural State and along their tour routes, the band is proud to be stepping into a hard-driving sound unique to the Arkansas quartet.

Friday January 17, 2020

Friday Music begins at 6PM with the likes of Brad Fielder and Red Ozak Ruse, with the most anticipated act of this year’s Festival taking the Stage at 10PM.  Living the mantra  “This isn’t a land made for quiet reflection, it’s a land made for hard work.”   Wood & Wire from Austin, TX have shown Respect for honest labor by honing a central theme in Wood & Wire’s 2018 GRAMMY Nominated album for “Best Bluegrass”, North of Despair ( Blue Corn Music), with songs populated by people like songwriter Tony Kamel’s own grandfather, who built the family’s hunting lodge. This kind of vivid, haunting songwriting focused on lives spent deep in the countryside is a hallmark of Texas songwriting. But it’s the melding of this hard country songwriting with high-octane bluegrass instrumentation that makes for Wood & Wire’s signature sound.

Saturday January 18, 2020

After a Raucus Friday night, there is no recovery time at OzMoMu20 as the music kicks up again at 1PM and continues throughout the night.  With acts such as Chucky Waggs, The Haymakers and Dam Neighbors the stage will be set for the Saturday Headliners to begin at 8PM.   OzMoMu festival goers should prepare for energy of The Hillbenders followed  by a Dose of Gypsy Punk Country Grumble boogie otherwise known as Dirtfoot.

The Hillbenders were formed in April of 2008, and are still touring with the original lineup widely touted as one of the most energetic and engaging progressive acoustic bands on the scene. Of late, the HillBenders have shifted their focus back onto their originals and have released their fourth studio album, appropriately and eponymously titled “The HillBenders”.

Dirtfoot has been spreading their infectious grooves and their unique Gypsy Punk Country Grumble Boogie sound for the past 10 years. The crowds come to take part in the fun and chaos, hollering to all the calls and responses, shaking their beancans, and getting down with the infectious grooves. Led by Matt & J, Dirtfoot is a blend of eclectic styles as well as diverse personalities. Featuring instruments ranging from guitar, banjo, trombone, upright bass, drums, percussion and more, this band has a truly unique yet familiar sound. The band describes their sound as “It is like a good gumbo – you have some growling vocals, heavy bass and percussion that makes a good, dark, dirty Louisiana roux, mixed heartily with some meaty rhythms, combined liberally with fresh offerings from the guitar and banjo that are like okra and tomatoes picked from your backyard garden, topped with the hot n’ sexy spice of trombone and lead guitar, and finally a little something magical and indescribable”, There you have Dirtfoot – a delicious, spicy, dirty band that will make you stomp your feet, shake you’re a..
