Visiting the Panhandle & Great Plains
Summer sunshine washes over Oklahoma’s Panhandle and Great Plains, bringing visitors together for a wide range of outdoor fun. Adventures await in the region’s parks and grasslands, and event calendars in towns from Blackwell to Guthrie to Weatherford are filling with all kinds of special events, festivals, and family-friendly activities.
Spring and summer sun means it’s time to hit the links, and the Panhandle is home to numerous top-flight golf courses. Visitors to Guymon will find the 18-hole, par-72 course at Pheasant Run Golf Club to be well worth the short drive to Enid.
Hungry? Check out the 2016 El Reno Fried Onion Burger Day Festival on May 7th. Savor a day of sizzling fun as El Reno's downtown area fills with a variety of festivities, including the grilling of the World’s Largest Onion Hamburger.
How about a little rodeo action during your visit to the Sooner State? The 2016 Pioneer Days Celebration & PRCA Rodeo is May 2nd through 8th at the Henry C. Hitch Pioneer Arena in Guymon. Aside from the buckin’ and lassoin’, a variety of Old West-themed activities highlight the event.
The rodeo action continues on August 26th and 27th, when the 2016 Oklahoma Cattlemen's Association Range Round Up comes to the Lazy E Arena in Guthrie.
From August 23rd through 27th, the 2016 Payne County Free Fair promises all the fun families expect to find at a good ol’ fashioned county fair. It’s five days of Midway rides and games, fair food, livestock shows, concerts, and more at the Payne County Expo Center in Stillwater.
