Stilwell Strawberry Festival
Held since the 1940s to promote the strawberries grown in the area, the annual Stilwell Strawberry Festival has become one of Oklahoma's most-loved hometown traditions. Over 30,000 visitors make the trek each year to Stilwell, the "Strawberry Capital of the World," for games, live entertainment, free strawberries and ice cream. This annual festival will also feature a 5K run, carnival rides, plenty of vendor booths and the Strawberry Festival Rodeo, held Friday and Saturday evenings at the rodeo grounds two miles north of Stilwell on Highway 59N.
Don't miss the popular parade featuring floats, marching bands, horses and more. The parade will be immediately followed by the crowning of this year's Strawberry Queen. Stick around for a strawberry auction, midway games, arts and crafts, vendor booths and a wide variety of fair food. A nationally-celebrated event, Stilwell's Strawberry Festival prides itself on family-friendly entertainment for all ages. Celebrate the annual strawberry harvest and small-town pride with live gospel and country music on the main entertainment stage, a strawberry recipe and baked goods contest and plenty of fresh, ripe strawberries.
Make time during the festivities for the Strawberry Festival Car Show on Saturday as well. From 8am to 2pm, the street will be full of classic cars, trucks and bikes. For a small entry fee, you can participate in the contest, or just sit back and enjoy the show for free. There will be prizes for Best of Show, Best Rad Rod, Best Pedal Car, Top 50 Awards and more.
