The Mangum Rattlesnake Derby is an annual event featuring everything from carnival rides to live rattlesnake shows. Visitors to the derby will have the unique opportunity to travel deep into the countryside surrounding Mangum to hunt rattlesnakes. All hunters must register at the event's Rattlesnake Headquarters. After a brief safety meeting, hunters are led onto private land in an attempt to catch local rattlesnakes. Put your nerves to the test and sign up for a spot on two daily caravans for an experience you won't soon forget.
If hunting rattlesnakes is not your idea of a good time, have no fear. The Mangum Rattlesnake Derby is a festival for the whole family. This derby is also home to one of the largest flea markets in Oklahoma. Hundreds of vendors flock to Mangum each year to sell their goods to passing patrons. Browse through booths at the flea market, visit the Arts & Crafts show, or peruse Artist Alley, a section of the market set aside for local artists to display their works. Stop by the food court and pick up a tasty treat from dozens of available food vendors.
