Description

Visit Wewoka for a fun-filled day at the Sorghum Festival. This fall festival is a celebration of Wewoka's history and the history of sorghum production in the town. Sorghum is a sweetener, similar to molasses, that was primarily used in pioneer times. At 10am, decorated floats, antique tractors, show horses and marching bands will make their way through downtown Wewoka in the annual parade. After the parade, visit the antique car show to admire classic cars of all makes and models. 

The Seminole Nation Museum grounds will host sorghum mill demonstrations throughout the day, complete with a vintage mill that uses mules for power. Watch as the sorghum cane is ground on the mill and the juice from the cane is boiled down into syrup. Old-fashioned artisans will demonstrate tool and soap-making, among other things. Enter your creation into the bake off contest or head over to the "Brothers of the Brush" contest to see all kinds of interesting beards and mustaches.

I didn't mean to rate this with one star. I meant to give it five stars.

We do not list vendor information on TravelOK.com, so you'll need to use the phone number or email address button at the top of this page to get in touch with the event coordinators. Have a great day and thank you for using TravelOK.com!
