Saturday, May 10
Unless you’re from the area, Bristow doesn’t exactly come to mind when you talk tabouli. But locals are keyed into the Creek County town’s Lebanese heritage and that more than 100 years ago, Bristow was home to a small community of Lebanese immigrants, who would gradually open flourishing food markets and factories. Tabouleh Fest remembers that past with a day of festivities on Saturday, May 10, on Bristow’s Main Street. You’ll find live entertainment, activities, karaoke, a rodeo, children’s attractions, a logging show, the Bubble Tower and vendors of all types of foods and goods. It wouldn’t be Tabouleh Fest without tabouli – that delicious salad of bulgar wheat, freshly chopped vegetables, lemon juice and olive oil – and this event has plenty of it.
