Come celebrate the Wild West and the birth of the historic town of McAlester, Oklahoma. This annual celebration takes place at the original crossroads that gave birth to McAlester back in 1840. McAlester was established by the great entrepreneur JJ McAlester, who established several mercantile stores during the time that McAlester was still a "tent town." Both McAlester's original home and his mercantile buildings are still in use and will be available for tour during the festival.
