Festival season kicks off with celebrations for everything under the sun.
It’s spring, and you can almost smell the kolache in the air. Prague’s annual salute to Czech pastry isn’t the only place to find a celebration of art, food and outdoor festivities everyone in the family will enjoy. Bixby BBQ ‘n’ Blues Festival, May 3-4, brings the smoky goodness you’ve been craving since the Northern Hemisphere last rotated this close to the sun. There’s more grilled goodness to be had at Claremore’s Boots & BBQ Festival, May 10-11. Ethnic food is abundant. Check out Germanfest, May 3-5, with the German-American Society of Tulsa as well as the Prague Kolache Festival, May 4, plus Tabouleh Fest, May 11, with Bristow’s Lebanese community. Looking for all-American savory? El Reno’s Fried Onion Burger Day Festival is May 4. Let’s not leave out some of our favorites: The Stilwell Strawberry Festival is set for May 11 in the Adair County town. The Blue Dome Arts Festival paints T-Town May 17-19, while Utica Square blooms with color for Spring in the Square, May 18.
