The Ozark Moonshine & Music Festival hosted a successful outreach event on Saturday, Aug. 5, 2023 as part of the festival’s “On the Road” series. The event was hosted in downtown Little Rock in the beautiful barrel room at Rock Town Distillery, Arkansas’s oldest operating distillery since Prohibition, a destination internationally renowned for its award-winning “grain-to-glass” in-house distilling.

Visitors spent the evening “mingling” with festival organizers during the casual meet-and-greet in support of children’s advocacy. Guests enjoyed moonshine-themed cocktails, refreshments from Mockingbird Bar & Tacos, and distillery tours while shopping for festival merchandise and tickets to the upcoming “Ozark Moonshine & Music Festival” in November. Members of the local Pulaski County CASA shared information about the critical role of local advocacy work, answered questions, and signed up new volunteers. The event collected donations on behalf of the Pulaski County CASA & the Ozark Moonshine Festival.
The festival team wishes to express sincerest thanks to everyone who showed support during the event, and particularly to Rock Town Distillery for hosting the event at their magnificent facility.
