World Fest Silver Dollar City 1999


#1

Dr Dobroslav Zeman, ph/fx 42 19 722 4716 Czech Republic, is the
Co-ordinator World Fest Silver Dollar City in April 1999. He was
visiting Queenstown New Zealand just before I arrived there last
week. I got interested in his proposal for the ‘Working
Exhibition in Missouri’.

I have no other info. Has anyone else heard of this event?

I haven’t heard of the event, but Silver Dollar City is located
west of Branson, MO and is a recreational theme park with art &
crafts demonstrations.

MO, is located west of Illinois and the Mississippi River, a
squarish state.  Branson is southwest/central part of the state
near Arkansas.

Thanks, Lester. I was also believe it or not wanting to know
what MO meant. I looked it up. It’s Missouri. I see it’s up a bit
from the huge Mississippi valley, in some sort of higher area of
land. Is this why Branson’s called Silver Dollar City? Silver
mines?

In about 30 years time I’ll get to know all these US states
internal abbreviations. Keep on using them.

Brian in new zeland, MO, Missouri,(Misery as us transplants like
to call it)is a very beautiful area of the USA. We have plains,
mountains and valleys and wonderful bodies of blue waters. The
fishing is THE pastime sport for many of us. I live in
Springfield, 45 miles north of branson and Silver Dollar City. For
those interested it is a hillbilly theme park built over a huge
cave. There is no silver mine and I can’t remember why they named
it that right now. The tourist traffic only slows down when it
gets very winter here because we get ice storms and people don’t
want to drive the curvy roads. If there will be a world craft show
there I would say it would be profitable to get in. We haven’t
heard any advertisement for that locally yet and if anyone really
wants to know contact phone numbers and names I would be happy to
research it and post it for all. Patty in Spfld,mo.

Thank your Patty. I think my next step is to get in touch with
this contact in Poland - the guy supposed to be researching
possible artists/crafters for this ‘World Fest’ is Polish. When I
get more info, such as local contacts I’ll post it.

Sounds like a Worldwide thing alright!
