We were staying at Lake Ouachita and went to watch the live music in the square two Sat in a row. They were different genres and both great!! Just bring a lawn chair and hang out with the locals. The little concession stand has great root beer floats and frozen grapes for a hot summer night.

The Front Porch is on the courthouse lawn and is a covered stage. The lawn concerts are on Saturday nights at 7p.m. and the talent is local and regional. The shows are free and they "pass the hat" for the bands. There's a nice snack bar called the Back Porch Kitchen that sells comfort food. Hamburgers, hot dogs, nachos, root... More

This is a don't miss experience if you have the chance. A truly wonderful slice of Americana. Great Music and the people could not have been more friendly and inviting. Got a great little concession stand with lots of goodies. Be sure to take a chair.

Mount Ida has a real treasure in their Front Porch Stage. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoyed some great music in an open air venue. There is no charge for the show, but a hat is passed around for the musicians. Food, snacks, and soft drinks are offered at a concession stand. It's great place to spend a Saturday evening... More

Full Disclosure.....My husband is in a band that performed at The Front Porch Stage so I could be a little biased. His band has performed there twice, and we have gone to see other bands as well. There is a real community feel to the venue. People of all ages come out with their blankets and lawn chairs. The music... More
