Follow Your Appetite
Late spring festivals spotlight local culture and small town charm - and food.
Let your stomach be your guide to festivals with very select tastes. A short drive from Oklahoma City will find you in Tuttle at Braum’s bakery and processing plant. On May 19, join the parade to the Ice Cream Festival with festivities and heaps of Braum’s specialty. Edmond’s Hafer Park serves up great music with a side of championship-ready barbecue on May 25-26 for Rhythm Qs & Blue. East of Edmond, Arcadia’s Crestview Farms host Herb Fest, May 20. A further push will find you at Prague Kolache Festival, May 5, to get a mouthful of yummy pastries; and in Bristow for Tabouleh Fest, May 12. You can’t go wrong with the Bixby BBQ ‘n’ Blues Festival, May 4-5; Claremore’s Boots & BBQ Festival, May 19; and the famous Stilwell Strawberry Festival, May 12, in Adair County. If you want to eat your way across state lines, try the International Greek Food Festival in Little Rock, Ark., May 18-20. For information, look at entries in the calendar.
