Come along on a tasty tour as Oklahoma serves up a big slice of Americana with this list of top food fairs and festivals happening across the state.
Welcome to the friendly city of Frederick, the county seat of Tillman County in southwest Oklahoma. Plan your visit to Frederick to experience attractions like the Ramona Theatre, the Hackberry Flat Wildlife Management Area & Center and the Crawford Collection, which contains over 170 amazing trophy mount animals on display.
Experience what life was like in the area during the 1920s at the Pioneer Heritage Townsite, a one-of-a-kind attraction containing a general store, Horse Creek School building, museum building, church building, Big Red Barn, Frisco Depot, implement shed and working windmill, blacksmith shop, and farmhouse. During select months, they also host special events like chuckwagon dinners, ice cream socials and lantern tours.
Frederick is also home to the Lazy S Ranch and Hamm’s Sportsman Oasis, both of which offer abundant year-round hunting. Cast a line in Lake Frederick or play a round at the 9-hole Frederick Golf & Country Club. When hunger strikes, head to Tacos N Taters Fajita Grill. Despite the funny name, this popular eatery serves up delicious food that is no laughing matter.
One of the city’s most popular events, the Frederick Fantastic Oyster Fry & Craft Show, has been drawing crowds to the area since 1952 for delicious oysters on the half shell or oysters fried in the festival’s secret recipe batter. Another must-see event is the Airborne Demonstration Team Open Hangar Day held at the Frederick Regional Airport where visitors can get a glimpse of U.S. military history in action with WWII-style aircraft, skydivers and exciting displays.
