Hosted each year in August since 1948, the Rush Springs Watermelon Festival celebrates the local crop of watermelons with activities, carnival rides and plenty of old-fashioned, family-friendly entertainment for all. This annual event has grown to become one of the most popular festivals in Oklahoma, attracting over 20,000 visitors each year and serving upwards of 50,000 pounds of juicy, ripe melon to festival-goers.

Sample local acres of black diamond, royal sweet and other varieties of watermelon, along with all-day entertainment on Saturday afternoon. Other festivities include a seed-spitting contest, an arts and craft fair featuring over 100 vendors, carnival rides, live entertainment, watermelon exhibits and more. Snack on tasty concessions from food vendors, or browse through rows of classic cars, motorcycles and trucks in the festival's annual antique car and motorcycle show.

Attend the festival on Thursday and Friday evenings for the annual Rush Springs Rodeo. Grab a seat in the stands and enjoy action-packed rodeo events and a calf scramble at nearby Rusty Acres Arena. A parade will also be held Friday evening. The carnival runs Thursday and Friday. Get a wristband for the best deal on rides both evenings.
