Indulgent Cheese

The Festival offers cheese tasting, taste Watonga Cheese and the many more Oklahoma has to offer. Want to just do more than taste cheese? Join the Cheese Food Contest. It is absolutely free, and your winning recipe will be part of our Cookbook!

Oklahoma wines & artisan cheese

You are invited to help us choose the People's Choice Award. Sample our selection of all- Oklahoma wine, and choose your favorite. Wineries and artisan cheese makers from all over Oklahoma will be featured in the Armory. (21 and over only to sample wine.)

The Big Parade

Throughout Friday & Saturday attendees will enjoy sampling Oklahoma Wines, live music, great food and shop all of our unique vendors and local merchants. We want to have a full Festival, but want to make sure the Parade is the highlight. Let’s make this the best Parade ever with floats, clowns, horses, use your creativity!

The Great Rat Race

The race is a favorite for those who want a flat, fast course to earn a personal record. The finish line will offer an exciting new opportunity for those runners who like to compete. RaceTimerz will be timing the event this year and will offer a kiosk at the finish line that will allow the runners to simply scan their racing chip for immediate personal results.

We appreciate our Military! Admission to the Festival is free with Military ID. Thank you for your service!
