Chamber of Commerce
Located just an hour drive from Springfield and Branson, nestled in the Ozark Mountains, our gem of a city offers a small town atmosphere with big town amenities. The business community of Ava is diverse with many locally owned and operated businesses, as well as, larger retailers and manufacturers. The city also owns and operates Ava Airport which is a favorable fly-in destination for pilots and aviation students. It offers a self service fueling station and is conveniently located at the edge of town. Ava is the perfect place to build your future, our treasures are limitless.
Surrounded by Mark Twain National Forest, the Ava area has a treasure trove of hiking trails, caves, and streams. Our Chamber of Commerce proudly hosts the annual Glade Top Trail Flaming Fall Revue celebrating the beauty of the autumn leaves from the breathtaking views atop Caney Mountain. Ava is the national headquarters of the Fox Trotting Horse Breed Association, which holds two annual shows each year, drawing thousands to our community. Ava’s largest treasure is her quality of life. A place to live, work, play, and raise a family in a small town atmosphere. We hope you come to visit, but chose to stay for a lifetime!
