Sign up for the annual Huckleberry 5K run or take it easy and meander through classic cars and street rods in the festival's car show. 

Take an exhilarating spin on a carnival ride or show up early Saturday morning for the Huckleberry Festival's parade, which typically begins promptly at 10am. Events will be held citywide, so pick up a snow cone or a refreshing glass of huckleberry lemonade and wander through downtown Jay to make sure you see it all.  Area bakers will submit their best pies for the huckleberry pie contest, while a wide variety of luscious pies will be put on the auction block for the festival's popular pie auction.

Jay's Huckleberry Festival is ideal for the family and is the perfect way to spend a summer afternoon. Cool off with a slice of juicy watermelon or treat yourself to a huckleberry milkshake. Visit the hog fry for delicious barbecue or simply pick up a bag of popcorn from an area vendor. This old-fashioned festival will also feature old-fashioned games including horseshoe pitching, a turtle derby, tricycle race, water balloon relay race and a root beer chug-a-lug contest. Visit the festival's baseball card show for entertainment that hearkens back to simpler times, and make your way to Jay's downtown square for free ice cream and huckleberry sauce while supplies last.

Vergie, they will have all kinds of huckleberry goodies, so we'd assume that huckleberries will be for sale. However, you can double check by calling the event coordinator at 918-253-8698. Thank you for using TravelOK.com!
