Green Corn Festival
WHERE: Charley Young Park
Bixby, OK 74008
WHEN: Jun 27, 2013 to Jun 29, 2013
Come to the Green Corn Festival for an old-fashioned, family fun festival held in downtown Bixby. The festival hearkens back to days of family picnics, afternoons filled with bright summer sun and sipping lemonade with friends. Festivities begin Thursday night with an opening ceremony, live music and a carnival that will continue through the weekend. On Friday the fun continues with a pioneer breakfast in the morning, talent show in the afternoon and the Bixby Round-Up Club Rodeo that evening.
Head out to the Green Corn Festival on Saturday and participate in activities for children and adults alike. Sign the kids up for frog or box turtle races, then watch as the Green Corn Parade makes its way through downtown at 10am. Other activities scheduled for the afternoon include an antique tractor pull, corn eating contest, watermelon seed spitting contest, balloon toss and more. Browse arts and crafts vendor booths and sample various foods from on-site vendors throughout the day. Stick around and enjoy live entertainment, then catch all the action of the second night of the rodeo.
