Friday, May 10-Sunday, May 12
Downtown Broken Arrow remembers its humble, agricultural beginnings with one of the state’s oldest festivals this weekend. The Rooster Days Festival runs Friday, May 10-Sunday, May 12, and in its 82nd year, the event is packed with all the attractions that are the hallmark of hometown fairs – carnival rides, parade, arts and crafts, fair food vendors, a run, market place, Miss Chick pageant, live music and entertainment around the clock. The fair has also become a sort of homecoming occasion for families, which makes it all the more comfortable. Nobody brings roosters to town for sale anymore as they did in the good ol’ days (hence, the festival’s name), but Broken Arrow still knows it roots.
