The Beavers Bend Folk Festival & Craft Show features turn-of-the-century crafts and demonstrations, folk music, a barnyard petting zoo and more. Exhibitors and nearly 70 vendors will feature crafts and skills such as woodturning, basket weaving, yarn spinning, quilting, papermaking and blacksmithing. Children's activities will keep the kids entertained, and a smorgasbord of food will fill hungry bellies. Meanwhile, folk ensembles will set the mood with the twang of banjos, the wail of fiddles and the sound of bagpipes.

Visitors to the Beavers Bend Folk Festival & Craft Show are invited to participate in hands-on opportunities to learn the art of vintage craft-making and mountain music, all amidst spectacular fall foliage. This folk festival will feature winemakers showcasing their Made in Oklahoma wines, instrument makers exhibiting their work and quilters showing their best. Bring the kids to the courtyard of the Forest Heritage Center during the Beavers Bend Folk Festival and enjoy a wealth of activities designed specifically for them. Kid-friendly activities include a petting zoo with plenty of furry, friendly creatures and toy top decorating.

Come to this festival and spend a pitch-perfect autumn afternoon listening to some of the country's best folk musicians and Celtic instrumentalists performing for visitors on the festival's outdoor stage throughout the three-day event. Visit the festival's food vendors for tasty treats including roasting corn, smoked barbecue, fish tacos and juicy burgers. Tried-and-true festival favorites such as kettle corn, homemade ice cream, savory beef jerky, sweet sugared pecans and funnel cakes will make a return to the festival to the delight of visitors. Make sure to wash it all down with fresh apple cider or a glass of root beer.

Attendance to the Beavers Bend Folk Festival & Craft Show is free, and so is the parking. Shuttle buses will be on-hand to transport festival-goers to and from the parking area to the festival grounds. Come and enjoy the wide variety of old-fashioned activities at this annual event, or simply make your way to Beavers Bend for the breathtaking fall foliage during the festival. Guests to Beavers Bend State Park will also enjoy outdoor activities such as horseback riding, camping, trout fishing and train rides. If you're looking for a way to spend a crisp, autumn afternoon, you can't go wrong with a trip to the Beavers Bend Folk Festival & Craft Show.
