ABOUT POLO IN THE OZARKS: In 1990, Life Styles and the Buell family joined forces to create this event and it has become one of the most popular annual fundraising events in Northwest Arkansas.
This annual fundraiser raises over $100,000 for individuals with disabilities in Northwest Arkansas and could not be done without the support of the local community.
The Polo in the Ozarks event takes place every year on the first or second Saturday of early September. It’s hosted by Dr. Brian and Mrs. Donna Buell, at their farm on Hwy 45 East, near Goshen. With almost 2,000 attendees every year, Northwest Arkansas’ longest running charitable event, Polo in the Ozarks has been a highly anticipated event in this region for 23 years. Featuring the area’s only polo match, this fun, family event also includes tailgate parties, dinner and dancing under the stars, children’s activities, and both live and silent auctions.

My favorite outings as a kid was going to Silver Dollar City or canoeing. I was always excited to be outdoors during the summer.
I have been to the Polo here in NWA and I really enjoyed it.
My favorite thing to do as a kid was going camping with the whole family! My dad would always make us eat pork and beans for dinner and tell us “you should be thankful we have beans!”
probably silver dollar city or lagoon in utah.
Favorite family outing was always back to school shopping.
I remember camping in the Rocky Mountains and toasting marshmallows over the fire.
I’ve seen signs for this event in the past, and always thought it sounded fun.
My most memorable trip as a child was when we drove our Funtime Van to California to go to Disneyland. I got lost on Neverland Island bc I followed the wrong family, which was the norm for me!
My favorite family outing as a child was going to Disneyland. It was my first time on a airplane and flying to California seemed so glamorous! It was a fun-filled week with my family!
We loved our road trips as kids. I will never forget when we traveled to West Virgina. After every food or bathroom break when my dad started the car we had to listen to, John Denver’s Country Roads. It drove us crazy but we will never forget it.
One of my most memorable family trips was when we accompanied my dad on a month long business trip to Hawaii. Even at 6, I knew we were so lucky and soaked up every minute!
My favorite outing as a kid was always going to Sea World. Always in the splash zone at the Shamu show!
We didn’t really do any major trips or distant outings, but my family tried to always get us out and about. We did rodeos, fairs, circuses, trips to OK or TX to see family which would include museums, amuzement parks, the lake, etc… Seems like we were always on the go!
I have always enjoyed outdoor activities with my family.. Picking blackberries until my fingers and lips are stained purple…hunting for morel mushrooms..we live in such a beautiful place!
One of my most memorable family outings as a kid was when we went to visit my great aunt and uncle in Louisiana when I was 11. Our family of 5 spent a couple nights with them, and we stayed out in the mobile home in their driveway. I thought it was the neatest thing we’d ever done!
My most memorable family outing as a kid was going to Disney World! We went every year and couldn’t wait to get there!!
The year my family went to DC for vacation was pretty memorable. The stately memorials, museums, my older sister trying to teach us some French phrases to repeat over & over at the US Capitol building so we could pretend to be international tourists…
My favorite memories were family vacations in the great outdoors: Mesa Verde in CO and exploring the caves in KY Mammoth Caves!
A trip to Sioux Lookout, Ontario with my whole family! My cousins and I still talk about that vacation!
My most rememberable trip when I was a kid was to Florida where we went to the Everglades and St. Augustine.
My most memorable family vacation was when I was 12. My whole family went to Colorado during the summer. While we were at the Royal Gorge I shut 3 fingers in the car door!!! I will never forget that vacation.
We used to visit my Grandparents in WV..Every summer my mom would pack fresh Italian sandwiches with salami and provolone and off we went…When we would go under the “Welcome to WV sign” we would all scream “WEST VIRGINIA” really loud. (including my mom)I would put my arm out the window on the way there and when I felt the cold air come from a certain spot from the mountain I knew we were almost there because there was a cave on the side of the mountain….I went back in my 20’s and I still had put my arm out the window when the cave was near…
My most memorable family outings as a child were the Sundays we spent at Prairie Creek on Beaver Lake. In the summer, we would spend the day swimming. In the fall, Mom would pack us into the car and we’d drive around the lake looking at the pretty autumn leaves. We didn’t have the money to go on expensive vacations, but we never felt like we missed out. Mom made every day fun!
We really never took family vacations. But, I do remember riding in the camper on the way to the lake. It was the kind that had the bed over the cab of the truck and I would ride there and it was so fun!!!
Disneyland was a fun vaction with my family. It was right before my sibs got to old to hang out with the family. And my little sister was old enough to last all day at the park.
We used to go to White Water in Branson once every summer. My mom being a single mother was on a very limited budget, so it was a special day for us. We would spend all day there, and then stop at a grocery store on the way out of town and mom would buy some scratch off tickets. If she won, we got to go out to eat at a nice restaurant on the way home! 🙂 Once, we got lost on the bad side of town (pre GPS days, gotta love it) but makes a good memory to talk about now, lol!
I recall camping trips when I was a kid. But it always seemed to rain and everything got wet! It never seemed to matter, we had a great time.
My favorite trip going up was my first trip to the beach.
My favorite family memory is our weekend trips to Branson!
