Festivities of Oklahoma City

Celebrating Heritage, Food, Music & Art



There’s one thing you need to know about the people of Oklahoma City: They know how to party. Between the food and heritage festivals, not to mention the art fairs and live music, there’s never a dull moment on OKC’s calendar.

Foodies, head to one charming Oklahoma City suburb in October for Guthrie Escape: Art, Wine & Music Festival, or make your way to Yukon in June for the Chisholm Trail Round-Up Crawfish Festival. Traveling with kids?

Check into the Cleveland County Free Fair in September, or wrangle them up for a day at the 89er Days Celebration.

Arts & Music

Music fans and art aficionados are in for a treat in Oklahoma City.

If you’re staying in town this spring, check out the Festival of the Arts in late April. Set in downtown OKC at Sheridan Avenue and Hudson Avenue, this six-day celebration features live music, great food and artwork from across the country.

For the ultimate trifecta, check out the Guthrie Escape Festival for that triple threat of art, wine and music.

Held in early October, the Guthrie Escape Festival is held in historic downtown Guthrie, and features live music on two stages, amazing food, and artwork for show and sale. Experience cultural Oklahoma with arts and music festivals in Oklahoma City.

Food Festivals

Hope you’ve saved room for Oklahoma City’s food festivals and fairs. Taking a summer break in OKC? Hit the Stroud's Historic Route 66 Wine & Food Festival in early June. Set in downtown Stroud – the Winery and Grape Capital of Oklahoma – the celebration is takes place on the Mother Road herself.

Another famous path in Oklahoma is the Chisholm Trail – the setting of the Chisholm Trail Round-Up Crawfish Festival also held in early June. This summer fiesta is found in Yukon, and features cuisine of the Cajun, creole, and chuck wagon variety.

There are many reasons to go to the fair, but the biggest incentive might be the food. Treat yourself to a few days at the Payne County Fair during your time in the Oklahoma City area. Held at the Payne County Expo Center in the city of Stillwater, this celebration delights all fair-goers each August.

Looking for an inexpensive day in Oklahoma? Check out the Cleveland County Free Fair in early September. Held at the Cleveland County Fairgrounds in Norman, the Cleveland County Free Fair is sure to impress those who love food, rides and games during their time in Oklahoma City.

Heritage Holidays

Oklahoma is a staple of the Old West, but what would it be without it’s many cultural influences? During your time in Oklahoma City, be sure to visit the many heritage festivals circulating OKC’s calendar. 

Choose from awesome festivities like the Oklahoma Czech Festival in October in Yukon, or the Iron Thistle Scottish Festival in late April at Yukon’s own Kirkpatrick Family Farm. Of course Oklahoma has some heritage of it’s own. Be sure to spend some time at the 89er Days Celebration in mid-April in historic downtown Guthrie.

If you’re visiting Oklahoma during your summer vacation, make certain to see the many performance at the Red Earth Native American Cultural Festival. Held in early June at the Cox Convention Center, the Red Earth Native American Cultural Festival has delighted attendees for more than 25 years. Get a good view of the many dance competitions, and the Red Earth Parade – and be sure to bring home some gifts from the Red Earth Art Market.

With all there is to do in Oklahoma City, don’t you think it’s time to start packing?
