Our inaugural year on the Mulberry River was a success! The talent packed main stage and picking tent kept attendees smiling and dancing. We set out to eliminate single-use plastic and prove that a sustainable large scale event is possible. Upon arrival, festival goers received a Fest Kit  that included a stainless steel pint glass, bamboo utensil, and wooden token (good for a plate at any vendor). We built a dishwashing station, partnered with Mulberry River Society to man it with volunteers, and hoped for the best. Our expectations were exceeded. A big thank you to everyone who supported us and our vision of a sustainable festival in the Ozarks! Thank you to our generous sponsors for helping us pull off our first year of Homegrown!
