Apache Rattlesnake Festival
Get up close and personal with Oklahoma rattlesnakes at the annual Apache Rattlesnake Festival. Attracting thousands of visitors each year, the Apache Rattlesnake Festival allows festival-goers to take a hands-on approach to gathering rattlesnakes, or allows them to remain safely behind glass while viewing these magnificent predators. Feel an adrenaline rush as you participate in a guided snake hunt, or try something new and sample fried rattlesnake. Guided snake hunts begin at 10am.
Prizes will be awarded for the most and largest rattlesnakes captured during the hunts, and a snake pit with live snakes and snake handlers will be set up to the delight of festival-goers. Don't miss the festival's open air flea market, or take the kids over to the carnival area where they can enjoy a wide variety of rides.
The Apache Rattlesnake Festival, going strong for over 30 years, is known for its amazing rattlesnake round-ups, but also features an impressive array of activities for the whole family. Come to this festival in Apache for a carnival, plenty of games, hundreds of vendors and delicious fair food. Enjoy live music performed for the crowds, or stick around for the annual powwow.
