Thursday, June 26-Saturday, June 28

What began as a special “thank you” to farmhands for a successful harvest is now one of the Tulsa region’s favorite community events. Bixby’s Green Corn Festival returns to Charley Young Park Thursday, June 26, to Saturday, June 28. Look forward to the Country Jammin’ concert beginning at 6 p.m. Thursday along with the carnival and Push Pedal Race. The fun continues the next night with pageants, a talent show, the Big Underwear Race and more building up to Saturday’s Green Corn Parade, turtle races, watermelon-eating contest, egg toss and other fun and games of a by-gone era. And don’t forget those juicy roasted ears of corn! The park is located at 50 W. Dawes Ave. in downtown Bixby. For more, visit www.bixbyoptimist.org.
