The 10 Best Fall Festivals in Oklahoma!

Fall festivals are among the very best in Oklahoma. It’s the perfect time of year to get outdoors—the air turning crisp, the feeling of Halloween right around the corner. Oklahoma has some truly awesome festivals in the autumn months. From Oktoberfests to Bigfoot celebrations, here are the 10 best in the state. 

1. Tulsa Oktoberfest

Enjoy an authentic Bavarian fest right in the middle of Tulsa. This festival has been going on for almost four decades. It features bratwurst, German beer, Bavarian cheesecake and authentic music.

2. Honobia Bigfoot Festival & Conference, Honobia, OK

Come to Beavers Bend State Park for storytelling and music related to Bigfoot. Attendees of this festival and conference believe that this mythical creature used to walk these hallowed grounds. Enjoy camping, ATV riding and delicious food as you learn for yourself whether Bigfoot really exists. 

3. Robbers Cave Fall Festival, Wilburton, OK

The best day to attend this festival is Saturday, when the Fall Foliage Cruise stops by. You’ll get to see over 450 pre-1987 cars. But the whole weekend features some great entertainment. There’s a quilt show, fantastic fall foods, amusement rides and over 200 arts & crafts vendors. On Sunday, there is always worship and gospel music. 

4. Poteau Balloonfest, Poteau, OK

Hot air balloon races, rides and glows are only part of this annual festival in eastern Oklahoma. Events include mud pit races, monster truck rides, live concerts, carnival rides and great food. Bring your lawn chair or a blanket to watch the balloons take to the air.

5. Beavers Bend Folk Festival

Enjoy historic arts, crafts, and music. Candle-making, quilting, soap-making and knife-making are a few of the skills you can explore. The folk music is set against a backdrop of a beautiful forest that is changing colors with the season. Kids of all ages can pet animals in the petting zoo. Enjoy cowboy tacos, roasted sweet corn and fresh apple cider. 

6. Pumpkin Palooza & Punkin Chunkin' Festival, Hobart, OK

If you’ve never seen a pumpkin chunked through the air by a catapult, you’ll want to check out this festival in southwestern Oklahoma. There’ll be great food, horseshoe and corn hole tournaments, carnival rides and more. 

7. Rt. 66 Pumpkin Chunkin Shootin' on The Route, Vinita, OK

This pumpkin chunkin’ festival features a chili cook-off, arts and crafts and pumpkin flying through the air. It’s a great time for the whole family. 

8. Czech Festival, Yukon, OK

This festival has been part of the community for over 50 years. It kicks off with a parade on Main Street, but the real draw is the kolaches, a made-from-scratch pastry with a fruit filling. We recommend peach or cherry filling, but they’re all good. Don’t wait to get your kolaches. Even though the committee works hard to make enough, it’s likely they’ll run out by afternoon. 

9. Greek Fest, Oklahoma City, OK

Greek Fest is mostly about the food, but there’s a lot more to do than just eat some excellent spanakopita, melomakarono or tiropita. Tour the church to see the beautiful artwork, enjoy live music and dancing or shop in one of the boutiques that features Greek artisans.

Jewish food, art and entertainment is the rule at this annual festival held at Temple Israel. It’s fun for all ages, and you’ll get to experience the Jewish culture to have a better understanding.
