Held since the 1940s as a way to promote the strawberries grown in the area, the annual Strawberry Festival in Stilwell has become one of Oklahoma's most-loved hometown festivals. The Strawberry Festival attracts over 20,000 visitors each year to Stilwell, the "Strawberry Capital of the World," with games, live entertainment and free strawberries and ice cream. The 71st 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 located two miles north of Stilwell on Highway 59N.

Don't miss the popular Strawberry Festival 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. Recognized as 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 9am to 2pm, the street will be full of classic cars and trucks. For a small entry fee, you can participate in the contest, or, of course, you can just sit back and enjoy the show. There will be prizes for top car, top truck, top 50 vehicles, best pedal vehicle and an overall best in show.
