Funtober Fall Festivals

Fall Oklahoma Festivals in 2015

The summer music festivals may be over but there are still plenty of things to do in Oklahoma this autumn. Be sure to add some of these amazing festivals to your fall calendar or you will regret it in December when you are stuck in your house! We already have dates for more than 20 events that will take place in 2015 and we expect to add a few more as the year progresses. You will find a diverse list of food, art and harvest festivals that will make you forget all about our list of the Oktoberfests in Oklahoma.  So dust off your chili recipe, try some cheese, and play with pecans while you attend these fall festivals. If you know of other events this September and October near Oklahoma City or Tulsa, please let me know!
