Get out your calendars and mark these dates down-August 7-8 and August 20-21. Two events you'll definitely want to attend!

August 7-8 at Drakes Harbor in Warsaw it's the Ozark Cigar Box Guitar Music Festival. The first festival was held in 2017. It was such a great success that The American Blues Scene rated that year's festival:

The #4 of the Top Five Blues Festivals in Missouri!

The next two years, 2018 and 2019, were even bigger and better. Unfortunately the festival didn't take place last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but this year the 2021 festival is ready to roll!

You'll find all genres of music during this two day event featuring nationally-recognized musicians playing their hand-made instruments. The family-friendly event will be Saturday, August 7, from 1-8 pm, and Sunday, August 8, from 11am to 5 pm. The festival is held at the Drake Harbor outdoor amphitheater overlooking the Lake of the Ozarks.

The next event is August 20-21 at Drake Harbor in Warsaw. It's the Smokin' on the Harbor BBQ Competition/Taste of Warsaw. It's a KCBS sanctioned Master Series BBQ Competition. The Taste of Warsaw is in conjunction with the Smokin' on the Harbor BBQ Competition.
